As Denver's Baby Hospital, Rose Medical Center has selected the very best obstetricians/gynecologists and midwives to work with our Rose Babies program, providing top-notch prenatal and childbirth care. Our experts see patients in and around the Denver metro area and are here for you from the moment you and your partner decide to start "trying" or once you see the results of a positive pregnancy test. Our team will work closely throughout your pregnancy for all your prenatal care needs and will be by your side when it's time for you to have your birth, your way at our beautiful Denver facility.
High-risk pregnancy care
In addition to standard prenatal care, some pregnancies require extra monitoring and attention. Often called "high-risk" care, our team provides an added layer of support for expectant families and their physicians. Whether mom is older than 35 or younger than 17, is carrying multiple babies, has conceived via in vitro fertilization or otherwise has been identified as needing extra care--we are here for you. And, if your baby needs extra support after birth, we are equipped with a state-of-the-art Level III Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU).
Childbirth and family education
You and your partner also may decide to participate in one of our childbirth and family education classes. Our program offers classes ranging from hypnobirthing and non-medicated birth preparation to traditional childbirth preparation, breastfeeding preparation and infant care. We also offer classes for expectant grandparents and siblings.
Rose Babies Tours & Your Rose Baby Appointment
Finally, whether this is your first baby or your fifth, we invite you to come experience Rose Babies firsthand. Schedule a tour through our specially designed Rose Babies wing, which offers a separate entrance for expectant families, the Rose Babies Birth Center (the first and only accredited in-hospital birth center in Colorado), a brand-new well-baby nursery, reserved parking and a Level III NICU. Then, when you are in your third trimester, we welcome you to a special Your Rose Baby appointment. This allows you to meet with a Rose Labor and Delivery nurse prior to your delivery date to ask questions, discuss your birth experience hopes and go over your birth wishes form.

Prenatal Plus program
The Rose Medical Center Rose Babies Prenatal Plus program offers eligible* pregnant mothers additional support to empower them to have a healthy pregnancy, healthy baby and healthy life.
The program aims to improve birth outcomes by reducing the number of low birth weight infants among Medicaid-eligible women in Colorado. A low birth weight infant weighs less than 5 pounds, 8 ounces or 2500 grams and is at greater risk for long-term health problems.
Our team works together to create a specialized plan for each patient. This plan supports mom throughout her pregnancy and into her first few months after delivery. Our team includes:
- A case manager who can give you referrals in the community for food assistance, parenting support, long-term counseling, finding baby items and more.
- A registered dietitian who will help you with weight gain goals and healthy eating during your pregnancy.
- A counselor who can talk to you about any personal issues you may have.
- A care coordinator who can provide education on breastfeeding, childbirth, self-care, healthy relationships, infant care and more.
Prenatal Plus offers comprehensive, personalized services including help with:
- Depression, anxiety, trauma, grief/loss, and stress management
- Nutrition advice for a healthy pregnancy and a healthy baby
- Relationship struggles, parenting challenges, changing family dynamics
- Preventing and treating postpartum depression or anxiety
- Domestic violence or personal safety concerns
- Drug, alcohol, or tobacco concerns
- Inadequate or excessive prenatal weight gain
- Breastfeeding education and counseling
- Newborn care education and safe sleep
- Preparing for labor/delivery and postpartum self-care
- Finding baby items
