Denver Health midwives provide care at three clinic locations: Eastside Community Health Center, Westside Community Health Center and Women's Care Clinic at Denver Health.

Mothers receive education, encouragement and reassurance during pregnancy and delivery. Denver Health midwives collaborate and consult with obstetricians to make sure all medical needs are met and if an unexpected emergency occurs, physicians are right there to help.
