My passion is to help women promote their own wellness and that of their families, drawing on their mental, emotional, physical and spiritual strengths.  This mind-body-spirit philosophy includes empowering women to explore and nurture all areas of their lives to allow for the optimal balance of health and well-being. Hence, live joyfully.

My role as your nurse midwife is to focus on you, the whole you, and the baby you carry. Lengthy visits allow time to listen to your joys and concerns, and for discussion and decision making about what is pertinent at each point in your pregnancy. All along we are creating a relationship, one that supports you in promoting a healthy pregnancy and trusting in the amazing process your body will navigate in giving birth naturally.

Carol Roedocker RN, CNM, MSN is a nurse midwife who provides home birth care for women and their families. 13th Moon Midwifery is located in Fort Collins and accepts clients within a radius that includes Loveland, Longmont, Greeley, Carpenter, Cheyenne and Laramie.

Kind Words


Words cannot express how grateful I am to have met you and had you care for my baby and me during pregnancy, birth, and postpartum. I am forever changed, and so is my family as a whole, all for the better, after my home birth. I cannot imagine having a baby any other way now! And feel so blessed to have had such an incredible birth team – so respectful, supportive, loving, and experience and trustworthy. Thank you for making it all possible!

I wanted to express my deepest gratitude for the services you provide, which give women like me the greatest gift a mom can get – the confidence and security to have a “good” birth. Although my babies will never remember their entry into this world I do believe the sanctity that filled the air they first breathed leaves a permanent mark in their hearts. Our world could use more good beginnings and good ends – so thank you for all you do.

I feel like you are so much more than a healthcare provider. While in your care I felt completely take care of, loved, nurtured and encouraged, and not just in my role as a home birther, but in my role as a mother too. You have been amazing, and I can never repay you for helping me achieve the kind of birth that I always dreamed of. I believe that everything that you told me and taught me helped in this process…Thank you for being you and doing what you do!
