the birth DAY VENUE  

At Catholic Medical Center, our birthing program and center are designed especially by and for new moms. When you first visit our labor and delivery unit, The Mom's Place , you will experience its inviting home-like ambience, but it's our philosophy of family-centered care that really sets us apart.

Level iib nicu

In collaboration with a team of neonatologists and other pediatric specialists from Children’s Hospital at Dartmouth (CHaD), 梦三国2 's Special Care Nursery  is a state-of-the-art Level IIB NICU (Neonatal Intensive Care Unit) for newborns born as early as 32 weeks. The Special Care Nursery practices Family Integrated Care, a philosophy of care designed to encourage bonding and attachment between parents and their newborns, beginning immediately after birth, and continuing throughout your NICU stay to your journey home. This model of care allows for parents/caregivers to room with their baby 24/7 and be involved in all aspects of their infant’s care.

You’re in good hands when you choose to have your baby at 梦三国2 . 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.  

Sign up today for your virtual welcome visit or take a virtual tour below. We look forward to meeting you and your baby.
