Giving Birth

Expectant Mom

When you arrive at NewYork-Presbyterian Lawrence Hospital to have your baby, you will be escorted to one of our new private labor-delivery-recovery (LDR) suites. With its comfortable, home-like feel, the room also features state-of-the-art monitoring and technological systems—all hidden in the room’s design. Families can be involved as much or as little as desired during the childbirth process. Working with your physician, a nursing professional specializing in labor and delivery will support, monitor and assist you during the process. If a Cesarean section is or becomes medically advisable, two operating rooms specifically designated for these procedures are located on the unit with a separate recovery room for maternity patients only. Anesthesia is available around-the-clock, including epidurals during labor. Our Special Care Nursery is a New York State-approved Level II nursery staffed by specialized neonatal nurses and neonatologists, and is designed for babies requiring intensive observation and medical care.
