At the BirthPlace at Sinai, we believe that a healthy baby begins with a healthy pregnancy. That means eating right, exercising, getting plenty of rest, visiting your doctor or midwife and taking advantage of our Family Education Program. We offer expectant parents and their families a comprehensive range of classes and tours. Our family centered program provides classes from pre-pregnancy through infancy.

Especially for Siblings
Perinatal Depression Outreach Program
Baby and Mother The Perinatal Depression Outreach Program (PDOP) is dedicated to helping women understand the emotions that accompany pregnancy and the postpartum period. Since many women experience some form of depression or anxiety during pregnancy or after giving birth, Sinai Hospital's PDOP helps women identify when their experience is more than the "baby blues" requiring further assessment and treatment. We offer depression screening, clinical assessments, treatment referrals, education on the risk and symptoms of perinatal depression and anxiety, follow up by phone, home visits and group support.

Perinatal Addictions Specialist Program
Pregnant woman and nurse The mission is to assist substance using/abusing women who are pregnant or who have recently delivered. Services provided address illicit drug use/abuse in order to maintain and enhance women's health as well as that of their children. Program services include providing addiction assessments for appropriate treatment referrals, follow up services by means of in-home education, advocacy and services coordination. We also provide a psycho educational group for women who only use/abuse marijuana.
