Maternity Care

At South Shore Hospital, our goal is to provide every woman with the childbirth experience they envisioned.  Whether you are a first-time expectant parent or having another child, we are here to make the birth of your baby as calm and comfortable as possible.

Our excellence in caring for expectant mothers and delivering babies is the reason why we welcome nearly 4,000 infants every year — more than any other hospital in the region. Our program offers resources and support to help families throughout the entire process. This includes everything from childbirth and baby care classes, to breastfeeding education and support.

Did You Know Our Maternity Program:

  • Has the region’s only Level III Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) — staffed 24 hours a day by on-site, board- certified neonatologists from Boston Children's Hospital, to care for ill or premature infants.
  • Has a newly renovated, beautifully-appointed Maternity Center with spacious private birthing rooms and private post-partum rooms.
  • Has a first-birth C-section rate below the national average.
