Midwifery Care

South Shore Health System’s highly-skilled, board certified nurse midwives provide a personalized pregnancy and birth experience based on your unique needs and desires.

Our nurse midwives can care for expectant mothers throughout their pregnancy, collaborating with OB/GYNs or maternal-fetal medicine experts when necessary. When it’s time to give birth at South Shore Hospital, your midwife is on hand to help you through the experience, including working with you to manage your pain—medicinally or non-medicinally.

If you need additional assistance during birth, your midwife will stay with you, whether you need a caesarian birth or attention from an OB physician. And, should your baby need medical attention, southeastern Massachusetts’ only Level III NICU is just down the hall.
