The Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology offers many programs to help women prepare for and manage their pregnancy. Ongoing monitoring and evaluation with Obstetricians and staff, as well as a 24/7 Pregnancy Hotline, are offered.
A Prenatal Care Program, under the leadership of Abbe Kirsch, CNM, Midwifery Director, is also available for women at similar stages in their pregnancy. It involves a total of 10 sessions throughout the pregnancy, each led by a BronxCare Midwife (a highly trained pregnancy expert). During these educational sessions, women learn the importance of health-promoting behaviors targeted at assuring positive outcomes for their pregnancies.
For further information or to enroll in the program, please contact Abbe Kirsch, CNM, Midwifery Director, at (718) 518-5000.
