At NYU Langone, our doctors manage low- and high-risk pregnancies for thousands of women each year. Our physicians are committed to providing individualized and compassionate care, including prenatal counseling, screening for health conditions and genetic abnormalities, pregnancy management, support during labor and delivery, and postpartum care.
NYU Langone has been accredited by the World Health Organization and the United Nations Children’s Fund as a Baby Friendly™ Hospital in recognition of our dedication to breastfeeding education and support. This prestigious designation is awarded to hospitals that excel in providing optimal care for infant feeding and mother-baby bonding. NYU Langone is also the first academic medical center in the country to be accredited by The Joint Commission in the very best practices for perinatal patient care and safety.
Our doctors are experts in vaginal and cesarean deliveries. Women interested in having a vaginal birth after cesarean, also known as VBAC, are counseled, informed, and assisted throughout pregnancy and delivery.
High-risk pregnancy experts at our Maternal Fetal Care Services manage conditions that can affect pregnancy, including preterm labor, autoimmune diseases in pregnancy, genetic abnormalities, preeclampsia, and gestational diabetes. NYU Langone’s neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) is equipped to care for babies born before 37 weeks of pregnancy, including those with a very low birth weight and other medical conditions.
NYU Langone offers classes, support groups, and resources for new and expecting parents.
Doctors at NYU Langone perform a pelvic exam and urine and blood testing to confirm pregnancy. They manage pregnancy with blood and urine tests, ultrasound, genetic testing, and fetal monitoring. Our experts can provide pain management during labor.
