the birthDAY VENUE
At Catholic Medical Center, our birthing program and center are designed especially by and for new moms. Our philosophy of family-centered care enhances the bond between you and your baby, including you in all of the decisions involved in this special time of your family’s life. Our labor and delivery unit, The Mom's Place
, provides home-like ambience during labor, birth, recovery and postpartum. For higher-risk births, we have the Special Care Nursery
, a state-of-the-art neonatal facility that practices neonatal couplet care.
You’re in good hands when you choose to have your baby at CMC. Our team includes all of the resources you might need from neonatologists, physicians and nurses to a lactation specialist, social workers, dieticians and physical therapists to support and educate you. CMC’s nurses and the providers from the Women’s Wellness & Fertility Center
work on an expert team with the board-certified physicians and midwives of Dartmouth-Hitchcock. The pediatric specialists of Children’s Hospital at Dartmouth (CHaD) provide care to preterm or special needs babies in our Special Care Nursery
CMC knows your childbirth journey begins long before you arrive at the hospital. That’s why we have a widely-recognized program of childbirth and family-preparation classes. We've also launched the iBirth app to help you track the baby steps of your pregnancy journey.
