Over the years we’ve been conditioned to think that giving birth is such a complex and risky procedure that it MUST be performed in a hospital. But the truth is hospital births are a relatively new phenomenon that has developed over the last hundred years. Read More…
Prenatal care begins the moment you find out you are pregnant. This care is of the utmost importance to both your unborn child and yourself. There are a myriad of things included in prenatal care, such as medical care, counseling, support and education on pregnancy and delivery. Read More…
The first milk, or colostrum, provides crucial antibodies that help keep your baby healthy until their immature immune system can develop its own defenses. Breastfeeding provides the ideal nutrition for your baby at every stage of their early development. Read More…
Postpartum care includes regular checks with mom and baby. I see both mother and baby about 24 hours and 36 hours after delivery. At these visits, we will make sure the baby is nursing properly, and there are no health concerns related to the delivery. Read More…

My wife and I were not completely sure that we wanted to have a home birth, but after we met Carmen and saw the way she cared and constantly followed up with her patients we were very pleased with our decision. We switched service from the hospital to a home birth and the level of care we received from Carmen immediately surpassed the hospital tremendously. Her prenatal, delivery, and postpartum care has all been wonderful and after working with her it is clear that she is an extremely knowledgeable and highly qualified midwife. We decided to do a water birth at home and it was absolutely amazing and we were able to stick 100% to our birth plan! If you are considering having a home birth then I would highly recommend you go through with it and I would also recommend that you choose Carmen Lackett with Mother to Mother Midwifery for your home birth. You will be very pleased!

Home Births

I provide certified midwife support for home births in Colorado Springs and the surrounding areas. I provide prenatal care, assist with the home birth of your child, provide breastfeeding support, follow-up postpartum and well-baby care.

Water Births

Water Births are a popular way for a woman to experience labor and delivery. The warm water soothes and relaxes the mother, facilitating a faster and easier delivery. I provide water birth services using a special inflatable pool – in the comfort of your own home.

Carmen is the most knowledgeable person I know in this field. Through the entire process I was completely comfortable with her. Even when I was scared at times Carmen had a way of completely calming me down. I trust Carmen completely with any pregnancy and would recommend her to anyone. As an added bonus she is the best out there when it comes to taking blood too, I couldn’t feel a thing.

“Midwifery calls upon you to be the best you can be: the best advocate, guide, healer, counselor, mother, comrade, and confidant of the women seeking your care.”

Anne Frye

“Many of our problems in US maternity care stem from the fact that we leave no room for recognizing when nature is smarter than we are.”

Ina May Gaskin

“The greatest joy is to become a mother; the second greatest is to be a midwife.”

I love Carmen. She is super sweet and reassuring when you need love and support. She is very encouraging and her calm presence allows you to feel safe. She is amazing at allowing you to push but also guide you in a non pushy or hard way. I would recommend Carmen to any new mamas;)
