Precautions for Moms, Babies & Families

 ARRIVING AT THE HOSPITAL: If you are arriving to the Pregnancy & Birth Center at night* and you would prefer not to use the Emergency Department entrance, you may go to the main hospital lobby entrance and use the call box to notify our security team of your arrival.

*Night hours are from 8:00 pm–5:30 am on weekdays and from 8:00 pm–7:15 am on weekends.

SUPPORT PERSONS & VISITORS: We have put specific guidelines in place to protect moms, babies and families during their stay with us. // SEE ALL GUIDELINES

CLASSES & EVENTS: All in-person classes are canceled until further notice, but some classes are being offered online. Visit our class list and select your event of interest for upcoming dates and specific changes. We have also added a new online session of Circle of Security.


A hands-on pregnancy and delivery experience, uniquely tailored to meet the needs—and wishes—of mom, baby, and family.

Each year, we welcome more than 1,100 babies—and for every birth, we pride ourselves on being both high-tech and high-touch. This means that we have the technology to ensure a safe delivery while prioritizing our patients, even if this means giving more back massages than epidurals. Our dedication to supporting you and your newest family member has led to some of the highest patient satisfaction levels in the area.

Baby-Friendly USA Certified

We are proud to be designated as one of seven Baby-Friendly® birthing centers in Connecticut by Baby-Friendly® USA, Inc.

BFUSA is the U.S. authority for implementing the World Health Organization and United Nations Children’s Fund’s Baby-Friendly Hospital Initiative (BFHI). Hospitals achieve accreditation from this body by demonstrating commitment to unparalleled care for breastfeeding moms and their babies.

Baby-Friendly birthing centers support evidence-based bonding and the healthiest development for babies.

  • Skin-to-skin contact is critical to the development of a lifelong bond between mom and her baby. We allow and encourage babies to “room in” with moms through their hospital stay - your baby will even be bathed and examined in the room with you!
  • We strongly encourage moms to begin breastfeeding as soon as they and their baby are ready and able. We have internationally board-certified lactation consultants on staff, and all of our nurses are trained to help new moms work through any difficulties they experience. If breastfeeding is not possible, we are also experts in alternative feeding methods. Our first priority is to ensure that you leave our hospital confident that you can provide the very best care for your new baby.
