BirthPlace at Sinai Classes, Tours & Programs The Family Birthplace

BirthPlace at Sinai

Our goal at the BirthPlace of Sinai Hospital is to provide excellent care in a warm and supportive environment so that the birthing experience is a special event. We offer our patients experienced, compassionate obstetric care and homelike, all private labor, delivery and recovery rooms designed to accommodate routine and high-risk deliveries.

One of the most advanced birthing centers in Maryland, our Institute for Maternal-Fetal Medicine and nationally ranked Level III Neonatal Intensive Care Unit provide the highest level of support for high-risk pregnancies and critically ill newborns. And our range of family-centered classes and programs can benefit the entire family--mother, father, baby and siblings--before and after childbirth.

If you need to complete your preadmission reservation please go here.

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.

Welcoming a new member to your family is an extraordinary experience. That’s why Sinai Hospital has taken special care to make The Family Birthplace just the right setting for this occasion. One of the first hospitals in the Baltimore area to offer family-centered care, we have distinguished ourselves by offering mother-baby nursing, private single-room maternity suites, in-room accommodations for one support person and so much more.

"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!

Perinatal Depression Outreach Program

The Perinatal Depression Outreach Program (PDOP) helps women understand the emotions that are typical during pregnancy and the postpartum period. We offer depression screenings, clinical assessments, treatment referrals, education on the complications of perinatal depression and anxiety, follow-up by phone calls, and group support.
