At Baystate Health, our skilled staff is equipped to manage both routine labor and delivery and high risk and preterm births.

Newborn medicine specialists, called neonatologists, are board-certified pediatric specialists who receive additional training in newborn intensive care. They are experts in caring for premature babies, high-risk babies, and babies born with medical problems.

Our newborn medicine specialists care for babies in the Davis Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) – the only level III NICU in western Massachusetts. They coordinate all of your baby’s care with the extensive resources of Baystate Children’s Hospital (BCH) behind them.


At BCH, our specialists:

  • Provide care to newborns at the time of birth – including in cases of emergency cesarean sections when vaginal delivery is not possible
  • Diagnose and treat newborns who have serious or life-threatening medical and surgical problems
  • Coordinate the care of newborns born prematurely, critically ill, or in need of surgery
  • Provide regular follow-up care for infants discharged from the NICU
