Having a Baby at Mount Sinai

Pregnancy is a very special time in the life of a woman and her family. Whether you are being cared for throughout your pregnancy by a Mount Sinai Obstetrician, midwife or your Family Practice Team, we want to ensure that you are well supported with resources and information about what you can expect throughout your pregnancy and care.

We will always encourage you to make decisions for your care or your infant’s care, based on all of the available evidence. Throughout your pregnancy, and during your hospital stay, the healthcare team will discuss your plan for care, in the context of the available evidence in order to adequately prepare you to make decisions. We welcome your input into your care and will respect the informed decisions that you make.
