Welcome to The Birthplace
The Birthplace at Bridgeport Hospital provides services in partnership with your obstetrician, using the highest level of sophisticated technology. The experienced and knowledgeable doctors and nurses of The Birthplace at Bridgeport Hospital bring almost 2,600 new lives into the world each year.
The Birthplace was designed by obstetricians - and by you. We asked women what they wanted, and we learned that you prefer to labor, deliver, and recover in one room. BUT, once the delivery is over and you're holding your brand new baby in your arms, you want a fresh, quiet room where your family can visit, separate from the delivery area. So we created birthing rooms and postpartum rooms - on the same floor, but very separate, for your comfort.
Each birthing room has a private shower, with Corian countertops and ceramic tile. Two rooms even have Jacuzzis, which can provide soothing relief in the early stages of labor.
For a change of scene during labor, you can walk down the hall to the comfortable living-room atmosphere of the Labor Lounge.
Postpartum rooms feature the same soothing colors, and also have generous bathrooms with large showers.
