The Birthing Center

Where you choose to deliver your baby matters. Expectant parents count on us for outstanding care in a family-friendly environment and an approach that respects and encourages the choices that are important to you.

Labor, Delivery and Baby Care
From big decisions (How do I want to manage pain or discomfort during labor?) to specific details (Please provide a hand mirror so I can view the birth of my baby) you create the birth plan that works for you. Services and choices appreciated most by our patients include:

  • Safe and innovative pain relief including nitrous oxide. We were the first in Massachusetts and also among the first in the U.S. to embrace a reliable pain management practice that provides the patient greater control.
  • “Skin-to-Skin” contact between mom and baby, directly after birth. We pioneered this practice because of its proven benefits: easing a newborn’s transition to the outside world, regulates breathing, increases immunity, strengthens bonding and more.
  • Birthing Tub for those looking for a distinctive and comforting option to bring their baby into the world.

Holyoke Medical Center was the first Baby-Friendly® hospital in the Pioneer Valley. The international award recognizes birth facilities that offer breastfeeding mothers the information, confidence and skills needed to successfully initiate and continue breastfeeding their babies.
