Testimonial: Danielle Cronin

Are you expecting a baby or planning a pregnancy?

With the completion of the Legacy project in 2012, Lowell General Hospital will offer an all-new Birthplace with an expanded labor and delivery unit, larger, private patient rooms and even more patient- and family-friendly conveniences.

The labor and delivery unit will be on the top floor of the new building and feature large windows and
captivating views. Larger, private patient rooms will provide even more comfort for laboring mothers as well as space to stretch out and families to bond. In-room showers and other amenities will create a soothing, gracious environment.

The Birthplace at Lowell General already has earned a reputation as the region's most trusted maternity service with the area's only Level IIB Special Care Neonatal Nursery and 18 obstetric physicians to welcome your baby.

"I recently gave birth to my fourth child and I cannot begin to express how happy I was with our experience," wrote Litchfield, New Hampshire resident Danielle Cronin – who happens to be a pediatric nurse. "The nursing staff went above and beyond to make our stay a pleasant and restful one, and ensured that I had the time needed to rest, recover and bond with our family. Our older children were welcomed into the unit with open arms, and we were able to really spend time as a family in those important first days.

Cronin Family"Despite the fact that we live almost an hour away, I would not have a baby anywhere other than Lowell General Hospital," she continued. "The physicians are second-to-none, and I feel truly fortunate to have had them be a part of all four of my pregnancies and deliveries."

In addition to our experienced team of obstetricians, our affiliation with The Floating Hospital for Children at Tufts Medical Center provides maternal-fetal medicine specialists (perinatologists) who are available for diagnostic testing and consultation for high-risk pregnancies. We also have neonatology specialists on staff 24/7 to care for premature newborns or infants needing more advanced care, and a team of anesthesiologists available around the clock.

For new moms, we also provide certified lactation consultants and breastfeeding support, and a full range of childbirth education and parenting programs.
