Obstetrics & Gynecology
Einstein Healthcare Network is a leader in providing obstetrics and maternity care to people in the Philadelphia region. With more than 5,000 babies delivered each year between our two OBGYN Centers at Einstein Medical Center Philadelphia and Einstein Medical Center Montgomery, we have the experience and expertise patients need for a healthy pregnancy and delivery.
Both facilities offer well-appointed, spacious and private delivery and postpartum rooms, a Level III Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) and C-section rates well below the state and national averages.
Einstein is committed to providing every patient with a supportive birthing experience by working with each mother-to-be before and during pregnancy and after delivery:
- Einstein uses the state-of-the-art technology and best practices to ensure a safe delivery.
- Telemedicine – consultations via internet or phone – aid patients in the management of diabetes or other critical issues that may arise during pregnancy.
- Our expert team of lactation consultants provide breastfeeding support.
- Registered dietitians provide valuable nutrition counseling for our patients before, during and after pregnancy.
- Our team of maternal-fetal experts provides our patients with ongoing education and support.
Additional services we provide:
Our team of highly trained experts are renowned for their ability to care for patient's with a high risk pregnancy to ensure the best outcome for mom and baby. Throughout their pregnancy, patients are welcomed into a private office setting for appointments with our maternal-fetal team.
Whether depression occurs immediately before and after childbirth or lasts for a longer time after, Einstein staff is able to help patients through difficult changes. At Einstein Healthcare Network, we employ a team of licensed social workers and clinical therapists to help determine the best methods to help you feel better.
Breastfeeding is one of the best things you can do for your child, and our team of highly trained lactation consultants are always eager to help with proper techniques to ensure the highest benefits for both mom and baby.
To help prevent the incidence of new pregnancies before the recommended spacing of 18–24 months, Einstein Healthcare Network’s Department of Obstetrics & Gynecology now offers long-acting, reversible contraception to new mothers in the postpartum unit.
Both Einstein Medical Center Philadelphia and Montgomery are recognized as Level III NICUs – meaning we’re capable of providing acute care for the smallest newborns with the most complex symptoms.
Nutrition is an important part of a healthy lifestyle for people who have special nutritional requirements during pregnancy, and breastfeeding. Einstein registered dietitians can offer recommendations and a dietary plan tailored to your personal health and lifestyle concerns.
