CESAREAN AND HIGH-RISK PREGNANCY CARE
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.
