Birthing Center Amenities
We want you to be as comfortable as possible during your stay at the Clough Birthing Center here at Emerson Hospital. That is why we offer you and your family an array of thoughtful amenities and services to support your recovery, and make those first days with your new baby enjoyable and relaxing.

We hope you will take advantage of these special services:
  • Free reiki sessions for newborns, new moms and immediate family members (partners and siblings). Reiki promotes relaxation, relieves stress and promotes self-healing. 
  • Free hand massages for new moms. (Emerson is one of the few hospitals in the Boston area offering this service as well as reiki.)
  • Free handmade cupcakes, tortes, brownies and other pastries delivered by our dessert cart to the postpartum floor each afternoon
  • Visits with a therapy and comfort dog are available to new moms on our postpartum floor who may be missing a furry friend from home.

In addition to the amenities at the Birthing Center, the hospital gift shop is a source of forgotten items from home and is the perfect place to pick out a gift for the new baby.
