Maternity services we provide

  • Genetic counseling
    Genetic counselors offer tests to assess the health and development of your baby before birth. These specialists consult with you and your partner about test results and potential treatment options, as needed.
  • Midwifery care
    Patients at Northern Dutchess and Norwalk hospitals have access to midwives who provide full-spectrum prenatal and postpartum care. Midwives aim to help birthing people have a supportive and empowering experience, with an emphasis on each patient’s needs and preferences. 
  • Resources for high-risk pregnancies
    We have maternal-fetal medicine specialists who care for women with high-risk pregnancies. These doctors have extra training and use multiple treatment options to keep both mom and baby as safe as possible.
  • Excellent NICU care
    Three of our birthing centers have Level III neonatal intensive care units (NICUs). Families in these birthing centers have access to specialists from Connecticut Children’s who specialize in caring for critically ill or premature newborns.
  • Childbirth classes and breastfeeding support
    We provide an array of childbirth, breastfeeding and postpartum classes. Lactation consultants offer breastfeeding support through a mix of one-on-one and group options. Postpartum groups help support new moms both physically and mentally through the “fourth trimester.”
  • Virtual tours
    Each of our family birthing centers has a virtual tour. These tours can help you become familiar with the many amenities we offer for your comfort and privacy.
