Our Expert Team

Family Birthing and Maternity Services, St. Vincent's Medical Center, Bridgeport CTAt St. Vincent's your new baby and family are in the best of hands, cared for by a team of experienced doctors, midwives, nurses and support staff. More than 30 practitioners are affiliated with the Family Birthing Center, including board certified obstetricians and certified nurse midwives.

In addition, we have more than 50 pediatricians caring for our newborns, as well as board certified perinatologists and neonatologists on hand for pregnancies and births involving special needs.

We were the first in the region to drill and test our capabilities to quickly and reliably initiate an emergency C-section.

Here, expectant mothers are treated with unrivaled care. It is the Family Birthing Center team who truly make a St. Vincent's Birth a special delivery. Our people are why generations of families are born at St. Vincent's.

By utilizing training tools, such as the Noelle, a computer-programmed pregnant mannequin, our staff hones their skills to effectively meet any potential challenges during childbirth.
