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.
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 an internationally board-certified lactation consultant 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.
