The Wesson Women & Infants' Unit at Baystate Medical Center in Springfield is devoted exclusively to women's health needs, family-centered childbirth, and newborn care. We’ll partner with you to ensure you receive the care you need and the experience you want.


We offer a safe, nurturing environment, backed by the most up-to-date technology and medical advances—including the region's only neonatal intensive care unit and high-risk perinatal referral center.

We also host a variety of childbirth and parent education classes, as well as parent groups and breastfeeding support. Our Breastfeeding Support Program can provide you with breast pumps, specialty breastfeeding products, and expert consultations.


Our team of registered nurses, certified nurse-midwives, and board-certified obstetricians will support you throughout your birthing experience.

New moms and their families enjoy personalized care with a range of birthing options and services, including:

  • Hydrotherapy (water labor) options
  • Flexible visiting hours
  • Rooming-in accommodations for partners
  • A free meal for your partner
  • Room service


The Wesson Women & Infants' Unit also cares for women who require a planned or emergency Cesarean section (C-section) delivery.

Our surgeons are part of Baystate's team of highly skilled physicians, many of whom are recognized nationally for their expertise in patient care, clinical research, and medical education.


We invite you to join us for a free maternity tour. Our trained staff can answer general questions about our policies and procedures along the way.
