Family Birthing Center at Danbury Hospital: Why choose us?
At Danbury Hospital, we are committed to keeping you and your baby safe, healthy and as comfortable as possible. The birthing center at Danbury Hospital is a Level III maternity center, meaning that if you have a high-risk pregnancy or birth complications, we can care for you. We know each birth is special and unique. We aim to make our birth center environment as home-like as possible, even while housing medical technology. We recently renovated our birthing center to create an even more comfortable environment for families. Additional highlights of our birthing center include:
Care for high-risk patients
If you have pregnancy risks, we provide maternal-fetal medicine services from specialists trained in high-risk pregnancies.
Specialized care for newborns
If your baby is born premature or experiences birth complications, we provide care in our Level III NICU through our alliance with Connecticut Children’s, a nationally ranked pediatric health system. All our nurses are certified in electronic fetal monitoring, so you feel at ease knowing you are in skilled hands.
Access to doulas
We are the only Nuvance Hospital with an on-site doula program. Doulas are available for extra support during your labor and delivery.
Every weekday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. you can reach a specialized lactation consultant through a dedicated phone line. These specialists answer questions and offer breastfeeding support and guidance.
Comfort and privacy
Each of our maternity rooms is a private room with an attached bathroom. Your birth partner also has space to stay overnight, so your whole family can be involved in the delivery experience.
Holistic laboring options
We provide birthing tubs for laboring and wireless monitoring options. If you want more pain management, our anesthesiologists (pain specialists) provide 24/7 care.
