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.
