Maternity Program

labor and delivery team

Exceptional, compassionate care and all the specialized services you might find in a larger city medical center - that's what you can expect from the Maternity Program at NewYork-Presbyterian Lawrence Hospital. It includes our new Center for Maternal Child Health which offers prenatal testing and advanced medical expertise for at-risk mothers and babies. At NewYork-Presbyterian Lawrence Hospital, we deliver nearly 1,300 babies annually.

The Maternity Center can offer patients and their loved ones 23 private, hotel-like post-partum rooms complete with their own bathrooms and showers, flat-screen televisions, and free access to the Internet. The Center features a state-of-the-art Nursery for newborns, and a Level II Neonatal Intensive Care Nursery for babies with special needs or who are premature. For added support and your peace of mind, our staff of experienced neonatologists offers 24/7 care to infants, giving them the same expert care you would expect from a city hospital.

Lawrence also provides a variety of resources to help patients achieve their individual breastfeeding goals. We offer prenatal breastfeeding classes for expectant parents, an on-site Lactation Specialist, and “rooming in” is encouraged to enable on-demand feeding. NewYork-Presbyterian Lawrence Hospital helps mothers develop a night-time feeding schedule to further support a breastfeeding plan. When mothers go home, our staff provides follow-up breastfeeding phone calls and encourages new mothers to participate in the hospital’s monthly Breastfeeding Support Group. For more information, please call 914-787-2141.

Lamaze and Childbirth preparation classes are available to help prepare you for the birth of your child. To sign up for a class, please call 914-787-5044.

We invite you to take a virtual tour of the Maternity Center or if you prefer, you can participate in an on-site tour given at the hospital on Thursdays at 7:00pm. Also, to learn more about our Obstetrics and Gynecology program, click here.
