Welcome to the Boulder Birth Community

We are part of a community that supports women’s health during pregnancy and beyond

Our community includes midwives, doctors, acupuncturists, social workers, chiropractors, yoga instructors, massage therapists, nutrionists, herbalists, doulas and teachers. It takes a combination of people from our community to promote and encourage health for our moms and babies. It truly takes a village.
