Maternity Services We Provide

Women who choose maternity services with Nuvance Health have access to:

  • 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.  
  • 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.
  • 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 birth centers have Level III neonatal intensive care units (NICUs). Families in these birth 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 maternity centers has a virtual tour. These tours can help you become familiar with the many amenities we offer for your comfort and privacy.
