Pregnancy & Childbirth

The childbirth experience you want. Delivered on the South Shore.

Nurse, mom and newborn

Whether you want to work with an experienced certified nurse midwife or OB/GYN, South Shore Health knows that every woman has a vision for her pregnancy and childbirth experience. We deliver nearly 3,400 infants every year—more than any other hospital in the region. We offer a choice of community-based providers with locations across the South Shore, including those that practice at The Women’s Center of South Shore Medical Center.

For expectant mothers facing pregnancy-related risks or complications that require a special level of attention, our comprehensive Maternal-Fetal Medicine Program offers high-risk pregnancy services, including the latest in maternal and fetal screening, and consultative services.

South Shore Hospital also has Southeastern Massachusetts’ only Level III Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU)—staffed 24 hours a day by on-site, board- certified neonatologists who are dually affiliated with both South Shore Hospital and Boston Children's Hospital to care for ill or premature infants.
