Department of Pediatric Newborn Medicine

Pediatric Newborn Medicine

Parents want the best for their baby, both before and after birth. The goal of the Department of Pediatric Newborn Medicine at Brigham and Women’s Hospital (BWH) is for every baby to receive the best possible newborn care and every family to be fully informed, engaged, and involved in their baby's care right from the very beginning.

We care for newborns of all gestational ages and are especially prepared to care for newborns born as early as 23 weeks of gestation. Our state-of-the-art Newborn Intensive Care Unit (NICU) provides expert newborn care for nearly 3,000 premature and seriously ill babies and families each year. Our team of internationally-recognized neonatologists and NICU specialists in nursing and other disciplines provides the most advanced care possible to newborns with critical and sometimes unique health challenges. Supporting families is also an important part of the care we provide. We offer a number of programs to help families during and after their babies’ stay in the NICU.

Many of our Brigham and Women's pediatric newborn medicine physicians are recognized nationally and internationally for their clinical expertise, innovative research, and educational contributions. A teaching hospital of Harvard Medical School, the Department of Pediatric Newborn Medicine also serves as a training site for residency programs affiliated with MassGeneral Hospital for Children and Boston Children’s Hospital.
