Family Medicine Physicians

Many of our Family Medicine doctors have special training in women's health, prenatal care and childbirth. If you already see a CHA Family Medicine doctor for your general health needs, ask about pregnancy care. Family Medicine doctors deliver at the Cambridge Hospital Maternity Suite.

Maternal Fetal Medicine

Cambridge Health Alliance Maternity Suite

Maternal-Fetal Medicine services are available for women experiencing high-risk pregnancies. These specialists look at the health of the mom and the unborn child at the same time to reduce risk factors. Also, on site genetic counseling and prenatal diagnostics are available.

Doulas are women trained to help, support, encourage and accompany women during pregnancy, labor, birth and postpartum, much like a mother or sister would. A woman and her baby can feel secure knowing that our doulas can help make their birth experience a positive one. Our 17 doulas speak 10 different languages. They can help make your experience better during a very joyous yet challenging time.

Great news for Moms and Babies!

Cambridge Hospital has one of the lowest cesarean section rates in Massachusetts.

A lower C-section rate means that new Moms have less pain after delivery, shorter recoveries and lower risks of infection. Babies benefit too!
