Weill Cornell Expectant Parent Education and Wellness Program
Thank you for choosing to deliver at NewYork-Presbyterian/Weill Cornell Medical Center! We are excited for you to experience our state-of-the-art labor and delivery and postpartum facilities at our NewYork-Presbyterian Alexandra Cohen Hospital for Women & Newborns and NewYork-Presbyterian Lower Manhattan Hospital. We also want to ensure that your entire pregnancy experience is as healthy and pleasant as can be.
We provide a multidisciplinary approach to your pregnancy, offering several programs to enhance well-being from the very beginning of pregnancy and to provide you with all the necessary knowledge and skills to navigate your labor and delivery and newborn needs.
We do not believe in one size fits all. We have five different learning platforms. Hopefully you will find one or more programs to best suit your needs.
Classes: allow you and your partner the opportunity to learn about childbirth preparation, breastfeeding, and newborn care. Mimicking traditional in-person classes, class size is limited to facilitate better learning. Our teachers are top-notch certified childbirth educators, doulas, or lactation consultants. Many are nurses or lactation consultants who currently work at NewYork-Presbyterian and Weill Cornell Medicine and can give you the scoop as to what works best here. Click here to register for a class.
Forums: Learn about key topics of interest in pregnancy with these Zoom forums, led by our obstetrician gynecologists (and sometimes guest speakers from other departments). Ask questions. Bond and share your thoughts and experiences with other pregnant women delivering at NewYork-Presbyterian and Weill Cornell Medicine. Click here to see the schedule for our forums.
Online and Video Learning: Access a nationally renowned e-learning module that allows you to learn at your own pace. Future video classes on various topics will enhance self-learning. Click here to register for online learning.
Postpartum Pelvic Floor Programs: Led by our talented urogynecologists, the pelvic floor program helps your body best recover after delivery by pinpointing and strengthening areas of weakness. We also offer a holistic approach to pelvic pain. Click here to learn more.
Wellness Offerings: NewYork-Presbyterian and Weill Cornell Medicine are privileged to have an Integrative Health and Wellbeing Program that offers individualized, holistic, and evidence-based approach to healthcare. In collaboration, these program offerings are geared towards enhancing your wellbeing throughout the entire pregnancy and beyond. Click here to learn more.
