Families are First Birthing Center

Bristol Hospital's Families Are First Birthing Center is built on the single-room maternity care model. This means that when expectant mothers have their babies in our Birthing Center, they stay in one place throughout their visit. Labor, delivery, recovery and postpartum all take place in the same spacious room.

"Every single nurse on the floor is amazing.  They took care of us like we were their family.  It makes me look forward to having more kids knowing the care I'll receive." - Patient 

Maternity Care and Childbirth Education
