Where Families Are Born

Aspen Birth Center

The Aspen Birth Center at Aspen Valley Hospital is designed for a memorable birth experience for new parents, those who are expanding their family, and friends and family who will share the experience. Mothers are provided with patient amenities from the early stages of labor through delivery and recovery. Partners have a comfortable place to support, rest and await the arrival of their newest family member.

 

Women who have their babies at the Aspen Birth Center benefit from:

  • Low nurse:patient ratios (often 1:1) during labor and delivery
  • Personalized care for all new mothers and their families
  • State-of-the-art pain management – an important component of the birth experience. Aspen Valley Hospital nurses are familiar with a variety of alternative pain management techniques, and the anesthesia department is available around-the-clock for those desiring epidural anesthesia.
  • Support from our International Board Certified Lactation Consultants and lactation counselors

The Perfect Setting for Your Experience of a Lifetime

The Birth Center includes: five single-occupancy labor, delivery, and recovery rooms with therapeutic whirlpool tubs; four single-occupancy postpartum rooms; an antepartum room for observation prior to active labor; and a large centrally located special care nursery with an isolation area.

Each room was designed to provide parents and families with a spacious, comfortable, home-like environment, yet at the same time accommodate all of their medical needs. In addition, a family waiting area accommodates families during your stay. The entire department is self-contained, thus providing patient safety, privacy and security. More importantly, our staff’s philosophy about the birth experience empowers mothers and enables them to make choices that best meet their needs.

Childbirth Education

It takes strength to listen to and trust our bodies, to welcome labor, to give ourselves over to the task of birth. It is a strength that all women have, although we may not realize it is within us. Birth has a lot to do with courage, and it is good to feel ourselves being courageous – to open ourselves to birth and embrace this singular life experience.

Lactation Services

Certified lactation consultants and a “Bosom Buddies” support group for new moms are just two of the ways Aspen Birth Center staff help new mothers gain information, confidence, and skills to successfully initiate and continue breastfeeding their babies.

Aspen Birth Center is Designated “Baby-Friendly” Facility

Of course a birth center is going to be baby friendly. But being awarded the “Baby-Friendly” designation means meeting the specific criteria identified by Baby-Friendly USA, Inc., the U.S. authority for the implementation of a global program sponsored by the World Health Organization (WHO) and the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF). The initiative encourages and recognizes hospitals that offer an optimal level of maternity care for breastfeeding mothers and their babies.  Aspen Valley Hospital was one of the first hospitals in Colorado to achieve this designation.
