Choosing a labor and delivery hospital can be a very daunting task. As a new mom, I did not know exactly what to look for, and all the different options were a little overwhelming! In the Denver Metro Area, we are so lucky to have tons of amazing hospitals- from small to big, and even with many different birthing options and rooms. The question is: which one is right for you?
The University of Colorado Hospital has some of the top obstetric doctors in the country as well as a unique midwifery program, so patients have a myriad of birthing options. Families may choose to upgrade to a private suite for the delivery of their baby, complete with a private chef, king-sized bed, living room area, and more.
