Our approach and supportive options
Our midwives focus on the natural, healthy aspects of women’s care and work with you to decide what is right for you, including:
Natural childbirth with or without pain medicine such as epidural anesthesia or intravenous pain relief.
Nitrous oxide, also called “laughing gas,” for labor. This colorless, odorless and tasteless gas can decrease pain. We were the first and one of the only hospitals in the region to offer this option.
Complementary healing options through collaboration with other UCHealth specialists and partner services, including:
- Childbirth education
- Doula support services
- Herbal therapies
- Lactation consultation
- Prenatal massage
