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.
Through our parent education classes, our certified birth educators teach you how to advocate for yourself throughout your pregnancy. We also educate you on 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.
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-FriendlyTM 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.
Our Parent Education Program is located at 660 First Avenue in Manhattan, on the fourth floor. For more information, please call 212-263-7201.
