Nirenberg Center for Woman and Infants

Johnson Memorial Hospital (JMH) strives to make each family's childbirth experience as positive, comfortable and memorable as possible.

Childbirth is an experience to be cherished. JMH incorporates the most modern birthing technology available, a knowledgeable staff that shares in the joy of each new arrival, and highly personalized attention that's hard to find anywhere else.


The six birthing suites at JMH are designed to accommodate patients throughout their stay - for labor, delivery, recovery and postpartum care. A highly advanced monitoring system to constantly assess mother's contractions and baby's heartbeat, ultrasound equipment, and state-of-the-art anesthesia technology are all tucked within the attractive furnishings of each suite. Each suite's adjustable birthing bed increases the mother's comfort during labor and delivery. In addition, each suite contains its own bathroom and shower; a rocking chair; television and DVD player; a refrigerator; and other comforting touches of home. If a cesarean birth is necessary, a sophisticated surgical suite is located adjacent to the suites.

The birthing suites at JMH are staffed by caring and compassionate nurses and physicians, all of whom possess high standards and credentials. Each nurse has been specially trained in all aspects of childbirth and newborn care to guide the family through the birth experience and the days to follow. For mothers and babies requiring highly specialized care, JMH is affiliated with Hartford Hospital, guaranteeing access to the area's top perinatologists and neonatologists.

To help families through pregnancy, birth and early parenting, a full range of educational programs are offered by JMH. These programs cover such topics as childbirth, breastfeeding, sibling and more.

Good Afternoon,
I have been meaning to reach out to you for many weeks now, but haven’t had a chance to do so yet as work has been hectic. So at 4:40 here on a rainy Monday, I finally have an opportunity to do so. I wanted to tell you what a fantastic experience my wife and I had at your birthing center. Without going into too much detail, it has been a very hard 10-year journey for us to have a child. We have been to many facilities over those 10 years including Fletcher Allen Healthcare in Burlington, VT, McGill University Healthcare in Montreal, Quebec, Canada, Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston, MA, Brigham and Women’s Hospital in Boston, MA, and Boston IVF, in Waltham, MA, and none were more welcoming and professional than your staff at the birthing center. Don’t get me wrong, we had some good experiences at the aforementioned institutions, but in terms of courteousness, professionalism, patience, and knowledge sharing, yours was the best.

Our son, was born at JMMC on March 18, 2015. He is our first child and the only one we will ever have as my wife and I are in our 40’s. The 2-day stay at JMMC was relaxing, informative, and just what we needed as new parents in our 40’s. I also like the fact that our son very rarely left us during those first 2 days. I would highly recommend JMMC to anyone who approached me asking my advice on whether or not they should go there to give birth. The care we received from both a personal and technical perspective was top notch.

I want to give special thanks to the staff who helped us out during those two days. They include Daphnie, Kim, Lorrie, Stacy, and Jackie. They were all fantastic!
