The Family Birth Center offers personalized delivery plans for expectant mothers. Mothers and their babies receive high-quality, safe care in state-of-the-art labor and delivery rooms and maternity suites.

Specialized Medical Team

Attending board-certified obstetricians and anesthesiologists are available round-the-clock to respond at a moment’s notice. Nurses are highly trained in all aspects of maternal and child health. Women also can choose to have a certified nurse midwife or a doula participate in the childbirth process.

Women who deliver at Danbury Hospital have access to attending doctors who stay-up-to-date on the latest protocols and educate the next generation obstetricians and gynecologists in the OB/GYN medical education residency program.
