Having a baby is one of life's most joyous events! We want you to have the birth experience that's right for you, so we offer many options. When it's time to welcome your new family member into the world, you can choose from:
We also offer different choices for prenatal care:
- Obstetrics/Gynecology (OB/GYN) Physicians
These doctors specialize in reproductive health for women, including prenatal care and childbirth. If you choose an OB/GYN Physician you will have your baby at the Cambridge Hospital Campus Maternity Suite.
These specially trained nurses offer a highly personal, natural approach to prenatal care and childbirth. If you choose a Midwife you can have your baby at the Cambridge Hospital Campus Maternity Suite or the more intimate Cambridge Birth Center.
- Family Medicine Physicians
Many of our primary care doctors have special training in women's health, prenatal care, and childbirth. If you already see a CHA Family Medicine doctor for your general health needs, ask about pregnancy care. Family Medicine physicians deliver at the Cambridge Hospital Maternity Suite.
- Maternal Fetal Medicine
Maternal-Fetal Medicine services are available for women experiencing high-risk pregnancies. These specialists look at the health of the mom and the unborn child at the same time to reduce risk factors. Also, on site genetic counseling and prenatal diagnostics are available.
Doulas are women trained to help, support, encourage and accompany women during pregnancy, labor, birth and postpartum, much like a mother or sister would. A woman and her baby can feel secure knowing that our doulas can help make their birth experience a positive one. Our 17 doulas speak 10 different languages. They can help make your experience better during a very joyous yet challenging time.
