Mount Sinai West Birthing Center Required Classes

If you want to deliver in Mount Sinai West’s Birthing Center, we ask that you take “Introduction to the Birthing Center” and “Early Discharge from the Birthing Center” by your 36th week of pregnancy. Register early for these classes, as they fill up very quickly. We will offer you several choices of dates and you can register and pay online for the two courses, which are offered as a package on the same date. 

Childbirth Classes throughout the Mount Sinai Health System

Any patient who is delivering at Mount Sinai West is eligible to attend any childbirth class offered throughout the Mount Sinai Health System. You can view the Course Catalog at Mount Sinai West, or look online to see the classes offered at Mount Sinai Hospital. As an alternative, you can also enroll in the e-Learning Childbirth Education Program.
