Pregnancy and Maternity


CHA Cambridge Hospital was named one of Newsweek’s Best Maternity Hospitals 2022!

Having a baby is one of life's most joyous events! We want you to have the birth experience that's right for you, so we offer many options.

Great News for Parents and Babies!

Cambridge Hospital has one of the lowest cesarean section rates in Massachusetts. A lower C-section rate means less pain after delivery, shorter recoveries and lower risks of infection. Babies benefit too! On the rare occasion when a cesarean section is needed, our experienced team of obstetricians are prepared to provide the best possible care.
