BMC’s Yawkey building doors are now closed as an entrance as part of our ongoing efforts to enhance our campus and provide you with the best clinical care.

All patients and visitors on our main campus must enter our hospital via Shapiro, Menino, or Moakley buildings, where they will be greeted by team members at a new centralized check-in desk before continuing to the hospital. We are excited to welcome you and appreciate your patience as we improve our facilities.

Boston Baby Virtual Cafés

As a new mom, breastfeeding can be hard. The Boston Baby Cafés are FREE drop-in sessions offering breastfeeding support from trained lactation professionals and information for new and soon-to-be mothers in the community. Join us in a relaxed, informal, and safe group environment. 

If you are:

  • Pregnant and interested in breastfeeding
  • Already breastfeeding and want to meet other moms
  • Need answers to your breastfeeding questions

Then, get breastfeeding help at one of the Boston Baby Cafés. Light snacks will be served. No appointment or registration needed. Partners and young siblings are welcome!
