We provide individualized care and rigorous prenatal management for expectant mothers who are referred to us with an obstetric complication or a high-risk health condition, as well as for those whose pregnancy is complicated by a multiple gestation or a fetal structural, functional or genetic abnormality.

With Labor and Delivery an integral part of NewYork-Presbyterian Morgan Stanley Children’s Hospital, we are able to offer every possible diagnostic and therapeutic option for both mothers and babies. We are one of only a few hospitals nationally that has labor and delivery in the same building as our children’s hospital. As a result, mother and baby never need to be separated.

Our 75-bed Level 4 Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) is recognized as one of the finest in the country, with the depth of expertise, advanced technology and therapies available to offer the best chance for survival. Our team of physicians, specially trained in intensive care, has pioneered many therapies for newborn babies now used worldwide.

In a family-friendly and technologically-advanced setting, NewYork-Presbyterian Morgan Stanley Children’s Hospital offers the best available care in every area of pediatrics – including the most complex neonatal and critical care, and all areas of pediatric subspecialties.
