For New & Expecting Parents

At NYU Langone, we know that pregnancy can be an exciting, but sometimes overwhelming, time in your life. There is much to learn and many decisions to make. That’s why we are firmly committed to providing soon-to-be parents with the education and support they need to have healthy, happy pregnancies and the best possible birth experiences.

VIDEO: A Journey in Breastfeeding at NYU Langone

Our certified birth educators teach you how to advocate for yourself throughout your pregnancy, what to expect during childbirth, how to care for a newborn, and ways to ensure your baby’s safety. Soon-to-be fathers also receive support through our Boot Camp for New Dads program. Our parent classes and support groups are offered through NYU Langone’s Center for Perinatal Education and Lactation.

Delivering Your Baby at NYU Langone

To learn more about why you should choose NYU Langone for your delivery, we invite you to attend a free Ready, Set, Baby! information session taught by our nurse educator. This presentation introduces you to our facilities and explains the NYU Langone birth experience. It also answers any questions you have.

For more information about childbirth at NYU Langone—including information about cesarean delivery, episiotomy, and breastfeeding—please read our Maternity Information and Childbirth Services brochure.

A Commitment to Breastfeeding

Our accreditation as a Baby-Friendly™ Hospital, awarded by the World Health Organization and the United Nations Children’s Fund, is an acknowledgment of our commitment to breastfeeding support and education.

Studies have shown that breastfeeding can reduce infant hospitalizations and pediatrician visits. Through our classes and support groups, our lactation consultants and lactation counselors provide you with the support you need to get off to a good breastfeeding start, continue after returning to work, and overcome any nursing challenges you face along the way.
