Choosing who will deliver your baby is an important decision. You’re entrusting a provider with the care of two people – you and your child – and forging a relationship that will grow with your family.
At Brigham and Women’s Hospital (BWH), we offer personalized, family-friendly obstetrics and gynecology (OB/GYN) care for mothers-to-be, from preconception and prenatal visits to labor, delivery and postpartum care. We provide patient-focused services for normal and high-risk pregnancies, including those affected by maternal medical conditions. Depending on your needs and those of your baby, your care team will be led by a board-certified obstetrician-gynecologist or a certified nurse-midwife. Our OB/GYN specialists work in partnership with parents to ensure a safe birth plan that meets personal preferences.
Our experienced obstetrician-gynecologists are specially trained to provide medical and surgical care. They are affiliated with Harvard Medical School where they educate the next generation of obstetric physicians. Many of our OB/GYN doctors are bilingual and have advanced training in specialty areas. They collaborate with experts in maternal-fetal medicine, genetics, reproductive medicine and other specialties throughout BWH.
Our nurse-midwives are certified by the American College of Nurse-Midwives and licensed by the state of Massachusetts. They are skilled at providing obstetric and newborn care, family planning and wellness education. A culturally diverse group of women, our nurse-midwives work closely with obstetricians if complications occur during pregnancy, labor or delivery. The Midwifery Group at BWH is the oldest hospital-based midwifery practice in Massachusetts.
Obstetrics and gynecology physicians and nurse midwives provide services at multiple locations in Boston and surrounding communities. Babies are delivered at the state-of-the-art Center for Women and Newborns at the Mary Horrigan Connors Center for Women’s Health.
