The Birthplace at St. Vincent's - Midwifery Experience
The Birthplace at St. Vincent's Medical Center includes two private birth suites where mothers can labor and deliver under the guidance of a midwife. Although midwives deliver babies at several hospitals in the area, The Birthplace at St. Vincent’s is the only in-hospital “birthing center” offering midwifery services in Fairfield County.
The Birthplace at St. Vincent’s offers the advantage of natural, minimal intervention- delivery by a midwife to appropriate patients with the safety net of a medical center, and following birthing center protocols.

Comfort and support during this exciting time
Childbirth is the most complex and exhilarating of all human processes. Each mother-to-be and baby-to-come is unique; each “pair” experiences the journey together in a singular way. Yet virtually all expectant mothers have one thing in common, which is the desire to have their baby receive the best possible start, from conception to birth and beyond.
St. Vincent's shares that desire and encourages you to learn more about our many options.
