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.
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.
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.
Families also receive personalized attention in our comprehensive Center for Breastfeeding Support. Although breastfeeding is a timeless way for mothers and their children to bond, we know that there’s also a definite learning curve for new moms. MetroWest Medical Center was one of the first institutions in the MetroWest region to develop a program dedicated to helping new mothers succeed with breastfeeding.
Our registered nurses are skilled in supporting new mothers who choose to breastfeed. From prenatal education through your hospital stay, our certified lactation consultants and counselors will be available to help you. Our staff will provide you with a list of resources in the community that are available for lactation support after your delivery and we’re only a phone call away after you have been discharged. For more information about educational programs on breastfeeding, please call (508) 383-1580.
