My name is Sena Johnson
I share a private homebirth practice with my partner, Geneva Montano - Sacred Birth Choice. I am based in Lakewood near Wadsworth and Alameda. Geneva’s office is near Hampden and Federal. We serve families in the Denver area as well as areas within an hour of the city that don't yet have a community midwife .I have had the privilege of serving at births since 1985, practicing as an independent senior midwife in Colorado since 1987. I've attended 1100+ births in various capacities - primary attendant, senior midwife assisting other midwives, and supervisor for midwives in training.
Midwives are the guardians of the normal.
During prenatal care our focus is on maintaining a normal healthy pregnancy. The emphasis is on good nutrition, exercise, and dealing with the normal psychological and emotional changes.
At the birth I will do as little as possible and as much as necessary. This means that I limit routine interference in the natural birth process. It also means I bring experience with the wide range of what is normal, as well as dealing with complications and emergencies which may be able to be resolved at home or may require transport.
New parents and babies thrive with support on the physical and emotional level. Breastfeeding is meant to work and long term support in the first year facilitates that.
How we birth can both reflect and change our lives. I strive to honor you in your power and your vulnerability during the child bearing years. My goal is for my clients to walk into their new lives feeling empowered and informed.
