The midwifery practice of Mount Sinai Beth Israel offers obstetrical and gynecological services to women who prefer care from a midwife. Since its inception nearly 30 years ago, our midwifery program has grown to become one of the largest in New York State. It is supported by the hospital's commitment to provide the highest quality, most compassionate care to all patients.

The practice is staffed by a team of midwives who hold degrees in both nursing and midwifery. Our midwives are certified by the American College of Nurse Midwives and licensed by the New York State Department of Education.


What is a Midwife?
Certified Nurse Midwives (CNM's) provide prenatal care, manage labor and delivery and offer a wide range of well-woman gynecological services, including routine physical exams and all methods of family planning. CNM's work with consulting physicians to offer integrated care that meets all of the patient's medical needs. Women benefit from an ideal combination of services including the privacy and comfort of a midwife who has access to all the resources and physicians of a major medical center 24 hours a day. Ambulatory care is offered in two locations in Manhattan, conveniently located near all public transportation.

We have 24 hour, in-hospital availability of:
§ Midwives
§ Board Certified obstetricians and perinatologists for consultation
§ Obstetrical anesthesia (if needed)
§ Level III neonatal intensive care unit staffed by board certified neonatologists

A flexible fee schedule is available, and we accept most HMO's and insurance plans.
For more information, please call Rochelle Lipshutz, CNM, MS, Director of Midwifery at (212) 420-2039.
