A Place for Beautiful Beginnings

Stock image of woman and babyYou want only the best for your family, so when it comes to finding the best hospital to deliver your baby, look no further than the Birthplace at Lowell General Hospital. The Birthplace offers new
moms everything they are looking for in a childbirth experience: highly specialized, advanced-level maternity care, close to home, with the comfort and personal attention that will give moms, babies, and their families everything they need before, during, and after delivery.

Through its affiliation with Tufts Medical Center and Floating Hospital for Children, the Birthplace has some of the leading obstetrical physicians in the world on staff, including perinatologists (specialists in high-risk pregnancies) and neonatologists (specialists in the care of premature or sick babies in a neonatal care unit). The Level IIB Special Care Neonatal Nursery at Lowell General provides the higher level of care needed by babies born up to eight weeks early and weighing as little as two pounds, as well as babies with respiratory problems or those who need intravenous feeding.

In addition to the expert care by our experienced maternity team, there are 18 obstetrical providers on staff, an obstetrical anesthesiology team available 24/7, a certified nurse midwife, certified lactation consultants, as well as a full range of childbirth and parenting programs, including hypnobirthing, sibling preparation, prenatal yoga, breastfeeding support, and a new moms support group.

First Class Amenities for Family-Centered Care

The Labor and Delivery Unit, located on top floor of the Dahod Building at the main campus, offers spacious rooms where mom and her support person have their own large-screen TVs equipped with customized programming, soothing patient videos and childbirth education information. Rooms feature large pull out couches and sleeping areas, as well as spacious bathrooms with individual showers and spa-like décor. Large surgical suites (for moms delivering by C-section) allow babies to stay in the room to promote early bonding and breastfeeding. A special hypnobirthing tub is also available to help soothe and comfort laboring moms.

For their convenience, new moms can order from our onsite Birthplace Boutique, which features many breastfeeding products including breast pumps, nursing pillows, baby slings, nursing bras, books and more. In addition, the Lowell General Gift Shop offers a variety of gift items and flowers that can be ordered in person or online.
