The Colorado Midwives Association support sand promotes the option of birth at home for childbearing families in the state of Colorado. We facilitate communication and promote a sense of community among midwives attending homebirths from Durango to Denver to Greeley and beyond. Home birth has been legal in Colorado since 1993 and to date, over 130 midwives have been registered to practice in all areas of the state.
