Labor and Delivery

  • Peak Vista refers our pregnant patients, who are in labor or experiencing pregnancy complications, to UCHealth-Memorial Hospital North. At this new and progressive hospital, our OB providers (doctors and midwives) provide the needed care for delivery and/or treatment for obstetrical complications. 
  • UCHealth-Memorial Hospital North's labor and delivery department is adjacent to the Children’s Hospital of Colorado which provides emergency access to not only neonatologists, but also to other pediatric specialists.
  • Peak Vista’s team of Certified Nurse Midwives* deliver babies in a hospital setting.  

Midwives

*Certified Nurse-Midwives (CNMs) are Registered Nurses (RNs) who expanded their education in graduate-level programs obtaining a Master’s of Science in Nursing. CNMs pass a national certification exam administered by the American Midwifery Certification Board (AMCB) to receive the professional designation of CNM.

Midwifery as practiced by certified nurse-midwives (CNMs®) encompasses a full range of primary health care services for women from adolescence beyond menopause. These services include the independent provision of primary care, gynecologic and family planning services, preconception care, care during pregnancy, childbirth and the postpartum period, and treatment of male partners for sexually transmitted infections. Midwives provide initial and ongoing comprehensive assessment, diagnosis and treatment. They conduct physical examinations; prescribe medications including controlled substances and contraceptive methods; admit, manage and discharge patients; order and interpret laboratory and diagnostic tests and order the use of medical devices. Midwifery care also includes health promotion, disease prevention, and individualized wellness education and counseling. These services are provided in partnership with women and families in diverse settings such as ambulatory care clinics, private offices, community and public health systems, homes, hospitals and birth centers.
