BirthPlace at Sinai Classes, Tours & Programs

BirthPlace at Sinai - Classes/Tours

Giving birth to a healthy baby starts with establishing healthy habits during pregnancy. That includes eating right, exercising, getting plenty of rest, visiting your doctor or midwife regularly, and taking advantage of the BirthPlace at Sinai's Family Education Program. We offer classes that can help prepare expectant parents and their families for the birthing experience and caring for the new baby, as well as tours.

Classes

Excuse us while we make some changes to our Childbirth Education Program. We will be moving to a new on-demand web-based education experience. We will continue to offer our Understanding Breastfeeding and Infant CPR and Safety classes as in person sessions. These changes will take place in the New Year. Please check back often for more information.

Tours

Parents may register to tour the BirthPlace at Sinai by calling 410-601-PUSH (7874). Parents may also view our BirthPlace photo gallery.


Programs

"Mommy and Me: New Beginnings" Breastfeeding Support Group

Breastfeeding is a skill that each mom and baby learn together in the first few days after birth. Getting started takes practice and patience while you and your infant become comfortable with one another. Support from others is also critical. That's why the lactation team at Sinai Hospital offers "Mommy and Me: New Beginnings," a breastfeeding support group. Learn from other moms who are experiencing the same things you are and share your own success stories.

Our breastfeeding support group meets every Monday (even holidays) from 10 a.m. to noon in the Lactation Resource Center in the Blaustein Building at Sinai. Drop-ins and babies are both welcome!

For more information or to sign up, call the Lactation Resource Center at 410-601-5193 or the nursery at 410-601-5195.
