Fertility Services

If you're having trouble getting pregnant, our team of fertility specialists can help. They are in a wide variety of services including re-opening tied tubes.

High-Risk Pregnancy Care

Women who have special health problems before or during pregnancy may be in the high-risk pregnancy category. Maternal-fetal medicine specialists, specially trained obstetricians and pediatricians, evaluate and treat women throughout pregnancy and manage premature labor.

Obstetrical Aesthesiology

Worried about pain? Our obstetrical anesthesiologists are specialists certified at the highest level and focused exclusively on obstetrics. They work with you to help manage your level of pain. 

The degree of pain that a patient in labor might experience is and individual matter. It depends on many factors, such as the level of pain tolerance, size and position of the baby, strength of uterine contractions, and prior birth experience. NewYork-Presbyterian Queens supports a statement from the American Congress of Obstetricians and Gynecologists, which says that no one should experience severe pain while under a physician’s care, as long as safe intervention is available. The statement stresses that a request from the mother is enough justification for pain relief during labor.

Father and siblings can share in the birth experience and be in the delivery room if desired.

Having a Cesarean delivery? We have three separate operating rooms just for this purpose.
