Birthing Center

The Birthing Center at Alice Peck Day Memorial Hospital offers every woman and her family personalized care to meet their individual wishes and medical needs.

Our facility was one of the first maternity units in the nation to be recognized by the Baby-Friendly®  Hospital Initiative. Inline with Baby Friendly USA, we believe that the precious first days of a baby's should be protected as a time of bonding and support not influenced by commercial interests and that every mother should be informed about the benefits of breastfeeding and respected to make her own choice.

APD will be integrating its obstetrical care with Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center (DHMC) effective July 15, 2018. Prenatal and postnatal services will remain on the APD campus in the Multi-Specialty Clinic and all births after July 14, 2018 will take place at the Baby-Friendly® DHMC birthing pavilion. We anticipate that many of our providers will join this integrated service. Please view details in the press release and our FAQs for patients. Please also read this joint message from our President and CEO, Dr. Mooney, and the President and CEO of Dartmouth-Hitchcock, Dr. Conroy, explaining the decision to integrate obstetrical care
