Maternity Orientation Program
Maimonides invites mothers-to-be and their families to participate in our Maternity Orientation Program. This program includes a tour of our Brooklyn-based maternity and birthing center, as well as information session on your experience before, during and after labor and delivery.
Maternity Tours: Providing a warm welcome to expectant mothers and their families
Our Maternity Orientation Program, in combination with the tour, provides an opportunity for women and their families to become familiar with the center's procedures and surroundings.
