The Lauder Center for Maternity Care

The Jo Carole and Ronald S. Lauder Center for Maternity Care is a state-of-the-art facility well known for providing exceptional hospital-based postpartum care with an emphasis on individualized and compassionate care. Our highly-skilled obstetricians and pediatricians are exceptionally trained and dedicated to providing the best possible care for you and your family.

Mother/Baby Amenities

We offer a wide variety of amenities to make you and your newborn comfortable and to ensure that these joyous first days are memorable.

Private Duty Nursing

If you need a little extra care, the Maternal Child Health Care Center offers private duty nursing on the mother/baby unit for an extra fee, to be discussed by the nurse and family. Our private duty nurses are experienced in providing quality family-centered care that meets the expectations of The Mount Sinai Hospital.

Lactation Services/Consultation

Breastfeeding is natural, but sometimes it doesn’t come as easily as it might. Our board certified lactation consultants offer breastfeeding classes for mothers and babies in all units in the Lauder Center. You learn breastfeeding skills, such as positioning, latching on, and suck assessment. We can also provide one-on-one assistance by a lactation consultant upon request.
