The Path to Parenthood at Sinai Hospital

First Visit

Your first appointment will take place 8-10 weeks into your pregnancy and will help ensure that your pregnancy is off to a healthy start. This appointment will include a physical exam, a discussion of your genetic and medical history, and an estimation of your delivery date.

Follow-Up Care

After your first visit, it’s important to carefully monitor the progression of your pregnancy. Follow-up visits will occur at regular intervals and include a blood pressure check, urine analysis, weight and fundal height measurement to assess fetal growth, and a fetal heart rate check via Doppler.

BirthPlace at Sinai

You deserve to welcome your baby into the world in a warm, private and comfortable setting. The BirthPlace at Sinai provides compassionate care in a warm and supportive environment, featuring private, homelike labor, delivery and recovery rooms.

Childbirth and Parenting Classes

Having a child is a big deal for any parent, and it’s normal to be nervous, but being prepared can help give you peace of mind as you await the arrival of your baby. That’s why Sinai Hospital offers a variety of classes to help prime expecting parents for the challenges, triumphs and milestone moments of parenthood.
