We offer a variety of childbirth and family education classes to help you and your family prepare for your little one's arrival. Our offerings range from hypnobirthing classes and unmedicated birth preparation to traditional childbirth preparation and infant care.
Rose Babies hospital tours
Whether this is your first baby or your fifth, we invite you to come experience Rose Babies firsthand with a tour of our facility. You will see that the Rose Babies wing of our hospital offers a separate entrance for expectant families, the Rose Babies Birth Center (the first and only accredited in-hospital birth center in Colorado), a well-baby nursery, reserved parking and a Level III NICU.
Touring the NICU
For health and safety reasons, we do not enter the NICU during our guided tours. However, if your pregnancy is high risk or you are expecting multiples, we can offer a private tour of the NICU. Please call our high- risk patient navigator at (720) 216-4290 to schedule a NICU tour.
Your Rose Baby appointment
When you are in your third trimester, we welcome you to a special Your Rose Baby appointment. During this appointment (prior to your due date), you will meet with one of our labor and delivery nurses to discuss:
- A brief health history
- If you are considering doula care
- If you are having a boy and considering circumcision
- Questions about breastfeeding and bottle feeding
- The admission process upon arrival
- What to expect if you are having a cesarean section (C-section)
- What to expect if you are having multiple babies
- What type of birth experience you are planning to have
Appointments are approximately 45 minutes in duration and are available Monday through Thursday.
As part of our continuing effort to provide a safe environment for our visitors, patients, staff and providers, we are not holding in-person Your Rose Baby appointments, but conducting them via telephone only. For the most up-to-date information, visit the Rose Babies Facebook page.
High-risk pregnancy care
At Rose Babies Center for Maternal-Fetal Health, we offer experienced and compassionate high-risk pregnancy care.
The term "high-risk pregnancy" can bring expectant families anxiety during a time they expected to feel joy and excitement. This designation, however, just means that our maternal-fetal specialists will work more closely with you and your physician. We will collaborate this way throughout your pregnancy and labor and delivery to ensure you and your baby are as healthy as possible.
Additionally, if your baby needs extra support after birth, our hospital is equipped with a Level III Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU).
High-risk pregnancy patient navigators
As an added benefit to our high-risk moms, we offer streamlined care coordinated by our high-risk patient navigators. From your initial diagnosis through delivery, your assigned patient navigator serves as your advocate, educator and supporter.
Your navigator also acts as a central point of contact, helping to coordinate care and communication among your care team, including specialists, OB/GYNs, surgeons, therapists and nursing staff.
Gestational diabetes program
The Rose Diabetes Center offers a Gestational Diabetes Education Program to benefit expectant mothers with gestational diabetes. The program consists of three separate appointments in which our diabetes educators work with you to help you understand and control your condition.
Perinatal behavioral health support
We want to ensure you have all the information you need about the emotional changes you could experience before or after having your baby. Our perinatal behavioral health program offers outpatient counseling, inpatient emotional support as well as a variety of support groups.
Prenatal Plus program
The Rose Babies Prenatal Plus program offers eligible pregnant women additional support to empower them to have a healthy pregnancy, baby and life. (To be eligible, you must be pregnant and enrolled in Colorado's Medicaid program.)
The program aims to improve birth outcomes by reducing the number of low birth weight infants among Medicaid-eligible women in Colorado. This is because a low birth weight infant (weighing less than 5 pounds, 8 ounces) is at greater risk for long-term health problems.
Prenatal Plus services
Through this program, our team works together to create a specialized care plan for you. We continue this care plan throughout pregnancy and into the first few months of motherhood.
Prenatal Plus features experienced team members who provide a variety of services to help you experience a healthy pregnancy, including:
- A care coordinator who can provide education on breastfeeding, childbirth, self-care, healthy relationships and infant care
- A case manager who can give you referrals in the community for food assistance, parenting support, long-term counseling, finding baby items and other resources
- A counselor who can talk to you about any personal issues you may have
- A registered dietitian who will help you with weight gain goals and healthy eating during your pregnancy
Prenatal Plus offers comprehensive, personalized services including help with:
- Breastfeeding education and counseling
- Community referrals, including Women, Infants and Children (WIC), food assistance and housing resources
- Depression, anxiety, trauma, grief/loss and stress management
- Domestic violence or personal safety concerns
