Nirenberg Center for Women and Infants
Childbirth is an experience to be cherished, and Johnson Memorial Hospital (JMH) strives to make each family's childbirth experience as positive, comfortable and memorable as possible. JMH incorporates the most modern birthing technology available, a knowledgeable staff that shares in the joy of each new arrival, and highly personalized attention that's hard to find anywhere else.
The six birthing suites at JMH are designed to accommodate patients throughout their stay - for labor, delivery, recovery and postpartum care. A highly advanced monitoring system to constantly assess mother's contractions and baby's heartbeat, ultrasound equipment, and state-of-the-art anesthesia technology are all tucked within the attractive furnishings of each suite. Each 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; television and DVD player; a refrigerator; and other comforting touches of home. If a cesarean birth is necessary, a sophisticated surgical suite is located adjacent to the suites.
The birthing suites at JMH are 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 JMH. These programs cover such topics as childbirth, breastfeeding, sibling and more.
