The Birthplace

Having a baby may be the most important decision you'll ever make. Deciding where to have your baby may be the second most important. You need a hospital that is attentive to your individual choices for your baby's birth, a hospital where doctors and nurses support your family in developing a birthing plan to create your own special childbirth experience. You'll find that - and a whole lot more - at The Birthplace at Lowell General Hospital.

The Birthplace offers expectant families everything they're looking for in a childbirth experience: highly specialized, Boston-level maternity care with the comfort and personal attention of a community hospital.

Through its affiliation with Floating Hospital for Children at Tufts Medical Center, The Birthplace has on staff some of the best obstetricians in the area including Maternal Fetal Medicine Specialists (perinatologist) available for diagnostic testing and consultation for high risk pregnancies. Even with the best prenatal care, the unexpected can happen. We staff 24/7 neonatology coverage for those infants that require a higher level care.

With comfortable, home-like rooms and highly personalized nursing care, The Birthplace offers a nurturing experience like no other.

The Birthplace offers:

  • Highly specialized prenatal care, including a Maternal Fetal Medicine specialist (perinatologist) and genetics counseling, for women with high risk pregnancies
  • Around-the-clock neonatologists for babies born prematurely or sick and needing a higher level of care in the Level IIB Special Care Nursery.
  • Highly trained and experienced physicians and Registered Nurses.
  • An experienced anesthesiology team available 24/7
  • Pediatric specialists on-site 24/7
  • Certified lactation consultants, breastfeeding classes and support available to every new mom
  • A full range of Childbirth Classes and Parenting Classes, including Hypno-Birthing®, sibling preparation, prenatal yoga, boot camp for dads, and a new moms support group

Mommy Blog

Eight local moms have been selected as featured bloggers for Our Circle of Moms Blog, sponsored by Lowell General Hospital and Floating Hospital for Children at Tufts Medical Center. The mom bloggers were selected from a contest sponsored by the two hospitals where moms were encouraged to visit Lowell General Hospital’s Facebook page and post a written narrative or video explaining why they would be a great mom blogger.
