Maternity Services at Good Samaritan

The Birthing Center

The obstetrical services program at Good Samaritan's Birthing Center offers personalized and individualized care for women and their families. Our Family Preference Plan lets you customize your labor, pain control, visitors, religious, cultural and educational needs during your labor and delivery experience.

The clinical obstetrical team at Good Samaritan includes experienced physicians, certified nurse midwives and registered nurses.  Ninety percent of babies born at Good Samaritan are delivered by the mother's own doctor or midwife and we consistently score in the top five percent, nationwide, for patient satisfaction.

Level II Special Care Nursery Staffed 24 Hours a Day by Boston Children’s Hospital Neonatologist and Physicians

Our licensed Level II Special Care Nursery provides sophisticated care for premature and critically ill newborns. The nursery is always staffed with a neonatologist or pediatrician who provides immediate care for your newborn. We know it is important for you to stay close to home during your pregnancy. Our state-of-the-art facility allows moms to bond with their baby while providing a supportive environment.

Infants who require more intensive care will be stabilized in our Special Care Nursery and transferred to St. Elizabeth’s Level III Neonatal Intensive Care Unit in Boston or Boston Children’s Hospital. Boston Children’s Hospital provides a highly trained transport team to care for infants during transport. When the infant is ready for our Level II care again, we will arrange transfer back to Good Samaritan Medical Center for the remainder of the hospital stay and provide ongoing care for the transition to home.

Good Samaritan Maternity Department is One of Only Six Hospitals in Massachusetts to Earn Baby Friendly Designation

Good Samaritan Medical Center has achieved the prestigious Baby-Friendly Hospital designation by Baby-Friendly USA. This award has been granted to 167 hospitals in the United States and only six in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts.

Baby Friendly

The Baby-Friendly Hospital Initiative is a global initiative of the World Health Organization (WHO) and the United Nations Children's Fund (UNICEF). This status is granted to hospitals that demonstrate a high commitment to breastfeeding support and education for its patients. Hospitals have to undergo a rigorous application process to demonstrate evidence-based maternity care, dedication of staff and physicians, resources and outcomes in breastfeeding to receive the award. Baby-Friendly designated hospitals must demonstrate compliance with the Ten Steps to Successful Breastfeeding and adhere to the International Code of Marketing of Breast-milk Substitutes.

The award demonstrates Good Samaritan Medical Center’s commitment to top-rated maternity care services as breastfeeding has been proven to provide better outcomes and a lower risk of certain diseases for children.
