The birth of a baby, a new beginning, is a time full of wonder. At the University of Connecticut Health Center’s John Dempsey Hospital, we’re here to make this special time positive, memorable and above all, wonderful.
Here in the serene hills of the Farmington Valley, the Family Birthing Center at John Dempsey Hospital combines both maternal and newborn care into one state-of-the-art facility.
Our Family Birthing Center helps us focus on what matters most: the well-being of you and your child.
John Dempsey Hospital provides exceptional support before, during, and after the birth of your child. Physicians are available 24-hours-a-day and nursing care meets the high standards set by the Dempsey Model of Nursing.
And, as part of an academic medical center, John Dempsey Hospital offers the latest, most advanced prenatal, labor and delivery, and neonatal care in the country. Mothers-to-be who anticipate a normal delivery, as well as those who are considered high-risk, can rest assured that they are giving birth in a safe, well-equipped medical facility.
As its name implies, the Family Birthing Center focuses on the entire family as it adjusts to accommodate your new addition. We offer classes that include prepared childbirth, infant care, breast-feeding, and sibling classes. Liberal visiting hours and private family lounges provide plenty of time to get acquainted with the newest member of your family. Whether it’s your first child or your fourth, every birthing experience should be a wonderful new beginning. At John Dempsey Hospital, we make that happen.
