Whether you are thinking about having a baby or are already pregnant, one of the many decisions you will make is where to deliver. ECHN is proud to offer you a first-rate, highly praised choice of childbirth and maternity services, where you can celebrate this very joyful experience.

The Family Birthing Center at Manchester Memorial Hospital features a maternity unit designed with families in mind. We are committed to doing all we can to make the birth of your child a joyful, memorable and medically secure experience. We offer you as many choices and as much flexibility as possible in your care. Our experienced, caring staff explains and respects your options before, during and after the birth of your child.

We offer new parents personal, family-centered care in a safe, home-like environment. Every birth is unique and every baby is special. We are happy to offer our families the option of VBAC (vaginal birth after cesarean), as well as water births and a NICU (neonatal intensive care unit).

Because ECHN is a health network, a wide range of other services also are available to you:
