Home-Style Maternity Suite Dedicated for the Couri Foundation

Friday, June 05, 2009 - Danbury, CT

Through the generosity of a donation by the Couri Foundation, Danbury Hospital unveiled its newly remodeled Antepartum Maternity Suite earlier this year. The Antepartum Suite is for mothers-to-be whose condition requires them to spend an extended period of time hospitalized before giving birth. Located the hospital’s Family Birthing Center, the suite’s new design creates a home-like atmosphere that makes the extended ---and often bed-ridden---stay for the mother more relaxing.
