Family Birthing Center

Mother and newborn baby

We Deliver: For Moms and Babies

At UConn John Dempsey Hospital, we combine maternal and newborn care in the state-of-the-art Family Birthing Center. Here, moms and babies benefit from cohesive, compassionate teams of expert doctors, experienced nurses, and supportive lactation consultants.

We Deliver: Peace of Mind

Babies born with complications receive meticulous, first-rate care in the adjacent Neonatal Intensive Care Unit – widely regarded as one of the finest units of its kind in the country.


As part of an academic medical center, we offer the latest, most advanced prenatal, labor and delivery, and neonatal care in the country.

Our exceptional support before, during, and after the birth of your child includes 24-hours-a-day physician availability and highest-standard nursing care. Throughout your labor and delivery, experienced nurses, many of whom are certified in obstetrical care or high-risk maternity care, are by your side.

Tip-toe through our web nursery to see those we’ve most recently welcomed.
