New Parent FAQ

Q: How do I get my baby’s official documents?

A: Our experienced team will ensure that when you leave for home from our Family Birth Center, you have everything you’ll need to easily get your newborn's birth certificate and Social Security number. If you give birth at The Birth Center of Boulder, at the 1-2 week postpartum visit a midwife will file birth certificate paperwork.

Q: Do you rent breast pumps?

A: We offer short- and long-term rentals of Medela breast pumps and sell helpful items that support breastfeeding. For more information, please call 303-415-7230.

Q: What happens to my pelvic floor after childbirth?

A: Vaginal deliveries can cause damage to key muscles, which can result in some women experiencing urinary leakage, pelvic pain, healing following a tear, vaginal bulge or bowel problems (constipation or leakage). Our team of pelvic floor physical therapists have specialized training in pelvic floor rehabilitation and are available to consult with new moms on an outpatient basis for what the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACG) recognizes as the fourth trimester—the 12 weeks after giving birth. For more information, please call 303-415-4400.

A Mothers’ Milk Bank Depot

Our Family Birth Center at Foothills Hospital is a drop-off location for donor breast milk for Mothers’ Milk Bank (MMB) – a program of Rocky Mountain Children’s Health Foundation. MMB is a distributor of donor human milk to medically fragile babies in neonatal intensive care units (NICU) across the nation. MMB safely screens, collects, processes and dispenses donated human milk as a community service, providing human milk to babies whose own mothers cannot supply the milk to meet their baby’s needs.

The Family Birth Center at Foothills Hospital is also a “depot” for BCH families looking to order or buy milk for their newborn upon discharge from either the Family Birth Center at Foothills Hospital or The Birth Center of Boulder.

For more information or to become a donor call 303-415-7230.
