Forward. Breathe that sigh of relief. You'll be surrounded by experts every step of the way and you'll understand why patients recommend Littleton Adventist Hospital to their friends and family.

  • 24-hour on-site expertise.Our team of maternal and child caregivers are supported by doctors, neonatal nurses and certified midwives who are ready for Rapidanswer if necessary
  • 24/7 pain management.As the second hospital in Colorado, we offer nitrous oxide as an alternative pain management option for women in labor. Under the close supervision of a midwife or doctor, nitrous oxide is self-administered, painlessly, with minimal side effects and no known effects on the baby. Regardless of what type of pain treatment you choose, or whether you decide against it, in-house doctors, midwives and anesthesiologists are always at your disposal.
  • breastfeeding support.Along with the American Academy of Pediatrics, we believe breastfeeding provides the best nutrition for babies. We help our new mothers breastfeed within the first hour after birth. Because of the excellent resources we offer, we have a 95% start breastfeeding rate, which is higher than the state and national average.
  • Specializing in high-risk pregnancies.Screening tests, genetic counseling, pregnancy management, diagnosis, diabetes education and management, education, pre-pregnancy counseling, and research initiatives are available to mothers with high-risk pregnancies.
  • Stage III neonatal intensive care unit. If your baby needs expert care in a high-risk situation, you'll be glad you chose The BirthPlace. Our NICU team is above average20 years of experience so you can be sure your baby is in good hands.
  • Gentle cesarean sections.Women who need a cesarean (C-section) can now connect immediately with their new little one in what is known as a "gentle caesarean". Until recently, women who gave birth by cesarean section missed out on face-to-face contact with their newborn because their baby was taken to the nursery while the mother recovered. Now, at Littleton Adventist Hospital, after the cesarean section and a quick examination by the doctor, the baby is placed on the mother's chest while the incision is closed. Then mom and baby relax together. Our cesarean rate is consistently better than the national average and our vaginal birth rate after cesarean (VBAC) is 88 percent, a testament to extensive experience.

Level III Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU).

At Littleton Adventist Hospital's Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU), our team of doctors, nurses and medical professionals provide loving and personal care to babies in need of special care. This compassionate team of experienced specialists includes neonatologists, perinatologists (doctors specializing in the care of mothers and fetuses), neonatologists (doctors specializing in the care of sick newborn babies), pediatricians, 24-hour in-house neonatology Nurses, Development Specialists and Respiratory Therapists. Consultation with other neonatal specialists is also available 24 hours a day.

Many of our NICU staff, including Neonatal Nurse Practitioners (NNPs), have over 20 years of experience. These NNPs accompany all high-risk births and are involved throughout the baby's stay in our hospital.

Our Level III NICU designation is based on our ability to care for the most difficult, premature or multiple births. While we hope your baby never needs this level of care, you can rest assured that our caring team of experienced specialists will provide you with the level of care needed.

We strive to make your family's stay in our NICU as comfortable as possible with a feeling of home. In our state-of-the-art 14-bed NICU, each baby and their family has a personalized space within the larger NICU, while our volunteers personally knit hats and blankets for the babies. Each living quarters is a separate private space designed for each baby's individual developmental care and features a chair, sink, supply cabinets and refrigerator for parental use.

In the NICU at Littleton Adventist Hospital, it only takes a short stay to be a part of our lives forever. The small miracles that pass through our unit make a big impression on our hearts and we love the opportunity to meet our family members in the NICU as well as their amazing parents, grandparents, brothers and sisters who gave them so much. love and support.

Every year we invite our former patients to a NICU meeting in our hospital. We have collected current photos of the children and photos from their time at the NICU with us. The picture collection is displayed on our drive for everyone to see. Other families traveling through our NICU on their journey are greatly encouraged by the evidence of such amazing progress in the other children.

We spent an afternoon together; Enjoy special entertainment, snacks and catch up with old friends. Many of our former families who have spent time together in the NICU use this as an annual reunion opportunity. For our employees, this is truly a family reunion, an occasion for great joy and celebration.

If you are part of our NICU family, please plan to attend our annual NICU meeting; Details are yet to come.

high-risk pregnancies

Every pregnancy deserves expert and compassionate care, but for mothers and babies who need a higher level of expertise, Littleton Adventist Hospital's Perinatal Care Center offers comprehensive maternal-fetal medical services specializing in high-risk pregnancies. The center is staffed by experienced midwives, sonographers and physicians from the Obstetrix Medical Group of Colorado.

If your pregnancy requires more than routine prenatal care, Littleton Adventist Hospital's Perinatal Center offers the resources necessary to provide patients with all the medical benefits and give your unborn child the best start in life. With a thorough understanding of the medical and surgical management of high-risk pregnancies, our maternal-fetal medicine team has an extensive knowledge of prenatal diagnosis and treatment.

Your doctor may think you need special care during your pregnancy for a number of reasons, including:

  • Pre-existing maternal disease, such as diabetes, autoimmune disease, thyroid disease, polycystic ovary syndrome, heart or kidney disease, and more
  • Overweight or obese
  • The mother develops a medical condition such as diabetes or preeclampsia during pregnancy.
  • Fetal abnormalities, including abnormal fetal growth or chromosomal abnormalities, such as Down's syndrome
  • The mother experiences complications during childbirth, including preterm labor.
  • Multiple pregnancy (twins or more)
  • Pregnancy in adolescence or after the age of 35
  • Maternal history of preterm labor

Our nurses are among the most experienced in the region, with an average of 20 years of service in postpartum care. Many have specific certifications in their field and are members of professional organizations specific to midwifery and neonatal care.

Our team of board-certified and qualified in-house anesthesiologists are available 24 hours a day to provide ongoing pain management support during labor and delivery. We also offer 24-hour obstetric medical care.

Perinatal Care Center services include:

  • prenatal screening- Usually, in the first trimester, a maternal blood test is combined with an ultrasound to identify fetuses at risk for chromosomal abnormalities.
  • genetic counseling- For those with a family history of genetic disorders.
  • Management of high-risk pregnancies- Patients with complications from a previous pregnancy may require special care and coordination with their primary obstetrician.
  • Ultrasonic- Advanced 4-D capability allows for the best possible view of the fetus.
  • Amniocentesis- The most common procedure used to detect birth defects, performed after 15 weeks of pregnancy to detect signs of a possible abnormality.
  • Chorionzottenbiopsie- As an alternative to amniocentesis, this procedure involves taking a small sample of cells from the placenta, where they attach to the wall of the uterus. It can be performed earlier in pregnancy than amniocentesis.
  • Diabetes education and management- In the case of newly diagnosed gestational diabetes or pre-existing diabetes, management is provided with nutritional advice and daily blood glucose monitoring.
  • anticoagulation management- Training and mediation of the injection technique for patients and their families.

Pre-Pregnancy Counseling: May be appropriate for patients with a medical or genetic history that needs to be evaluated prior to pregnancy.

The Perinatal Care Center is located on the medical campus of Littleton Adventist Hospital.

Littleton Adventist Hospital is proud to partner with Mother's Milk Bank (MMB), a Colorado-based nonprofit program that collects, processes, tests and makes available human donor milk to babies across the country. Babies who receive the milk may be premature or have serious illnesses and need breast milk to develop. Breast milk benefits infants for nutritional, immunological, developmental, social, economic and environmental reasons.

Are you interested in becoming a milk donor? You are likely to be considered a donor if you:

  • in good health
  • a non-smoker
  • Not taking medication regularly.
  • A person with plenty of milk.

Milk donors must undergo a blood test and health screening, be willing to donate at least 150 ounces total, and have a medical certificate signed by the mother's and baby's doctors.

For more information on donating or receiving milk, contact us:
