Denver, Colo. – January 17, 2017 – Rose Medical Center was honored to welcome the first birth at the brand new Rose Babies Birth Center, a low-intervention birthplace. Rose’s birth center is the first and only in-hospital birth center in Colorado.

“We would have happily considered having a baby at home, and this felt just like it, but we still had the access we needed,” said new dad Tyler.

New mom Sarah adds: “I felt so safe. The collaboration and decision making was amazing. We were so appreciative of everyone’s commitment to carry out our intention and our plan to have our baby this way.”

A low-intervention birth allows labor to begin and progress naturally without unnecessary medical and technological monitoring and procedures. These births are unmedicated and provide constant personal support to mothers and their families. Rose Babies Birth Center families experience a calming, home-like environment that is free from interventions while being cared for by their trusted OB provider within the safety net of a facility well-known for excellence in obstetric and neonatal care.

Well known as Denver’s “Baby Hospital” for generations, Rose Medical Center is thrilled to bring this special new birthing option to Denver moms. The Rose Babies Birth Center includes spacious, all-private rooms. Each room includes Apple TV to aid in relaxation; queen size beds for labor, birth and family bonding; oversized tubs for comfort; specially trained nurses and an extensive array of labor support tools and holistic pain management options. In addition, Rose also is home to Denver’s only HypnoBirthing program.

“We take very seriously our service to Denver area moms and families, and our patients have been expressing this desire for a long time,” says Rose Chief Nursing Officer Lynne Wagner, BSN MHA CENP. “We are very proud to now offer this special service to our patients so that we can continue to meet their birth wishes.”

The Rose Babies Birth Center is in the process of pursuing accreditation with the American Association of Birth Centers. For more information about the Rose Babies Birth Center, visit
