Wesson Birthing Center Details

Welcome to the Wesson Women and Infants’ Unit, Baystate Medical Center’s state-of-the art Birthing Center.


The three floors of the Wesson Women & Infants’ unit have a total of more than 113,000 square feet, the equivalent of about 60 houses.


On the ground floor are the reception desk, gift shop, Wesson Women’s Clinic, Midwifery Services, Perinatal Services, Conference room and the Women’s Evaluation and Treatment Unit.

The first floor of the Birthing Center features 37 private birthing rooms. These homelike rooms are designed to make expectant parents feel more comfortable during the entire birth process.


The Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) is located on the 2nd floor. This ultramodern 55 bed unit is the largest in the state and is designed for the unique stages of a newborn’s recovery. Also located in this unit are an X-ray room, a minor surgery suite, a laboratory, and the parent’s room.


The Wesson 2/Cesarean and High Risk Pregnancy Unit is also on the 2nd floor. Here, specially trained nurses will care for moms who have had a Cesarean delivery and their babies or for women with a high risk pregnancy.


We have all the people, equipment, and expertise necessary to make your childbirth experience a safe, healthy, and positive one. We offer a range of services to meet each family’s needs—physical, emotional, and financial—whether they arise during your pregnancy or your hospital stay.


We are honored that you have chosen to share this special time in your lives with us.



From our Family to Yours, 


Wesson Women’s Staff
