Our Mission and History
Our mission statement is right on our front page: “We Deliver Outstanding, Family-Centered Care to Women and their Babies”. The Birth Center’s primary goal has always been to attend to a woman wherever she wants to and feels safest and most supported giving birth. When Jolene first moved to Colorado Springs, she was shocked there wasn’t already free-standing Birth Center here because there had been others in Denver for many years. She felt like there was a real need for one in the community, to give this option to women in Colorado Springs for giving birth. So, in Jan 2017 Jolene decided to take the step towards opening Beginnings Birth Center. Jolene felt it was important to locate the Birth Center close to a hospital to offer a closer option in our community that still has the comfort and amenities unique to Birth Center Birth. She also took great care to put EVERYTHING she had learned about supporting women in natural birth into the design and features available at the Birth Center. In September of 2018, we welcomed clients to our clinic and in December of 2018 we welcomed the first baby born at Beginnings. Since then, hundreds of women have birthed in our intimate rooms and we have cared for many women and families in this space. The “birth” of Beginnings Birth Center was truly a labor of love.
