At MetroWest Medical Center, we know that giving birth is one of the most joyous times of your life. Our Beautiful Beginnings Maternity Unit & Birth Center is committed to making you and your family as safe and comfortable as possible for your delivery in our hospital and throughout your stay with us.

Maternity Services

Once you’ve given birth in one of our labor-and-delivery rooms, you’ll have about an hour to bond with your child and significant other before being transferred to a post-partum maternity room. Once there, we encourage you to keep your baby with you as much as you like and to welcome visitors.

In addition to bright new décor, our Maternity Unit offers private bathrooms, padded rocking chairs, overnight guest accommodations, flat-screen televisions, a celebration meal, a gift bag and valet parking for your family. Most important of all, our staff is committed to understanding and meeting your needs.

At MetroWest Medical Center, the team of specialists in our birth center includes world-class physicians and neonatologists who also work at Tufts University Medical Center in Boston, meaning you and your baby can receive the same level of care right here at home. You can be assured of the best care and most advanced treatments from the moment you enter our labor-and-delivery rooms to post-childbirth care for you and your baby. If your baby is premature or has problems, we have a Level IIB Special Care Nursery staffed by Tufts neonatologists and neonatology-certified nurses.

Maternal-Fetal Medicine

In pregnancy, things don't always go as planned. If you have a high-risk pregnancy, it's essential to receive comprehensive monitoring and treatment to ensure the best possible outcome for you and your baby. At MetroWest Medical Center, our specialized physicians and nurses will provide that, and so much more, all close to home.

Unit tours are held every fourth Wednesday of the month at 6:30pm. No registration required. We hope you’ll join us in the Main Lobby of Framingham Union Hospital!
