Well-baby nursery

Rose Babies is home to a state-of-the-art well-baby nursery. Following delivery, some new parents don’t want to let their newborn out of their sight, while others like to have time to rest and recuperate before heading home with their new baby. Our beautiful well-baby nursery, directly adjacent to the Mom/Baby nurses station, is a place where your baby will be safe and comfortable while the family gets some rest. This nursery also has a dedicated room for elective circumcisions. For babies that need a little extra care after birth, we provide a Level III Neonatal Intensive Care Unit.

Postpartum support after discharge

Our postpartum support does not end after you are discharged. Our team offers a variety of support services to help you once you are home with your baby.

Lactation help and breastfeeding support groups

Get answers to your breastfeeding questions within 24 hours through our Lactation Helpline (303) 320-2001, select Lactation), and/or attend our weekly breastfeeding support groups, Rose Mamas TLC (The Lactation Club), Mondays, 1:00pm – 2:00pm. Space is limited. Registration required.

Rose also offers one-on-one, in-person lactation consultations through our Outpatient Lactation Clinic. This is particularly helpful if your baby is losing weight or having trouble gaining due to breastfeeding difficulties. Call (303) 329-5001 for more information or to schedule an appointment.

Rose Mamas Circles

If you haven’t already joined your Rose Mamas Circle, you can still do so after baby arrives! These due date-based meetup groups help you connect with other mamas and continue through 6 months postpartum.

Postpartum behavioral health services

Depression and anxiety are the most common complications after pregnancy. Parents of every culture, age, income level and race can develop perinatal mood and anxiety disorders. Symptoms can appear any time during pregnancy through the first 12 months after childbirth. If left untreated, symptoms can last for years, but effective treatment options are available. The sooner you get help, the sooner you will feel like yourself again.

Rose is dedicated to educating both expecting and new parents on perinatal mood disorder symptoms and how to access care when needed. We have a dedicated full-time perinatal behavioral health counselor to provide both education and emotional support to our families during their stay and after discharge.

Inpatient emotional support

Our perinatal behavioral health counselor is available to visit any patient during their hospital stay. Our counselor can provide a brief emotional well-being check-in or address more significant behavioral health concerns where follow-up support after discharge may be recommended.

Outpatient counseling services

Our perinatal behavioral health counselor is also available for 1-on-1 outpatient counseling for new mothers or fathers experiencing mild to moderate symptoms of depression or anxiety or who are struggling with other emotional challenges. Contact our perinatal counselor at (303) 320-2224 or email to learn more about this service and/or schedule an appointment.

Rose also offers more intensive group therapy programs for those with more severe symptoms through our Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP).
