We provide pregnancy testing and prenatal care. Your first doctor’s visit when you are pregnant starts with a sonogram, a painless test that allows the doctor to see your baby and make sure that he or she is developing normally. We also talk with you about things you can do to have a healthy pregnancy, such as eating right, drinking enough water, making healthy choices when it comes to sex, and seeing a dentist. Some women experience depression or other mental health issues during or after pregnancy, and we can refer you to our behavioral health program.
During your pregnancy, you can choose to participate in our shared medical appointment program. These sessions combine your own doctor’s appointment with childbirth and breastfeeding classes, a tour of labor and delivery at NYU Langone Hospital—Brooklyn, and a meeting with our pediatricians. You can also meet other soon-to-be mothers, and talk about things you have in common. Our nurses are available to answer any questions you have about pregnancy and childbirth.
We perform all medical testing on site, including blood tests. If your doctor thinks you need extra care during your pregnancy, or if you or your baby have been diagnosed with a medical condition, we have maternal–fetal medicine doctors who are experts in helping you have as healthy a pregnancy as possible.
Gynecological and Women’s Health Services
Our OB/GYN physicians provide annual women’s health checkups. This includes testing for sexually transmitted diseases such as HIV, Pap smears to check for human papillomavirus and cervical cancer, and screenings for breast cancer and other cancers. Birth control, including intrauterine device (IUD) placement, is also available. If you have endometriosis, pelvic pain, or any other women’s health issue, our doctors can help.
If you have been diagnosed with breast cancer, our breast cancer surgeon is available to provide treatment.
Our insurance representatives can help you apply for Medicaid and the Special Supplemental Nutrition Program for Women, Infants, and Children (WIC), if you qualify. We also have a sliding-scale payment system that is based on your income.
For women who need help with issues related to domestic violence, immigration, or housing, we provide consultation with a lawyer from Her Justice legal services. This program is coordinated by Community-Based Programs—Family Health Centers at NYU Langone.
