The Family-Centered Birth Experience

As our name implies, the Family Birthing Center focuses on the entire family as it adjusts to accommodate your new addition with warm, personalized care in a safe, supportive environment.

Our classes are designed with family milestones in mind, from prenatal preparation to breastfeeding and infant care. We offer:

  • Hospital maternity tours
  • Childbirth preparation
  • Breastfeeding
  • Infant care
  • Parenting

Our private labor and delivery rooms are equipped to accommodate your needs through your entire birthing experience. Labor, delivery, and recovery all take place in one room, eliminating disruptive moves from place to place. Each room is designed to make you feel at home, and includes a private bathroom, sitting area with rocking chair, and a television. All equipment necessary for the actual birth is nearby, yet out of sight until needed.

Your partner or support person can participate in the entire birth from labor right through delivery and recovery. UConn John Dempsey Hospital also offers traditional delivery rooms equipped with the latest technology.

We welcome your new beginning with confident, compassionate care. Call us today at 1-84-GET-UCONN to be matched with a physician.
