Newborn Care

Sinai’s tiniest patients often need the most specialized care. Even though most pregnancies are safe and problem-free, our doctors and nurses are prepared for every situation.

If your baby comes too soon or needs special attention, Sinai Children’s Hospital has a Level III Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) – the highest level of care available for newborns. In this unit, the team which includes doctors and nurses with special training in neonatology will ensure that your newborn receives the best care. After delivery, your child will be evaluated by pediatricians with specialized training in the care of newborns. You will have access to the services of a breastfeeding specialist who can help you make this process easy for you and your child. Should your child be born early or have problems in the newborn period, Sinai Children’s Hospital is equipped with a state of the art special care nursery.
