Family Birth Suites features six private birthing suites designed to accommodate patients throughout their stay — for labor, delivery, recovery and postpartum care. Tucked within the attractive furnishings of each suite are a highly advanced monitoring system to constantly assess mother's contractions and baby's heartbeat, ultrasound equipment and state-of-the-art anesthesia technology. The suite's adjustable birthing bed increases the mother's comfort during labor and delivery. In addition, each suite contains its own bathroom and shower, a rocking chair, color television and VCR and other comforting touches of home. If a cesarean birth is necessary, a sophisticated surgical suite is located adjacent to the Center.
Family Birth Suites is staffed by caring and compassionate nurses and physicians, all of whom possess high standards and credentials. Each nurse has been specially trained in all aspects of childbirth and newborn care to guide the family through the birth experience and the days to follow. For mothers and babies requiring highly specialized care, JMH is affiliated with Hartford Hospital, guaranteeing access to the area's top perinatologists and neonatologists.
To help families through pregnancy, birth and early parenting, a full range of educational programs are offered by Family Birth Suites. These programs cover such topics as childbirth, breastfeeding, sibling rivalry and more. In addition, new mothers can depend on the staff of Family Birth Suites to offer continued support following their discharge.
