Life Begins at NYM

855.LIFE.NYM (855.543.3696) 

Life Begins is a program for expecting mothers who plan to give birth at NYM. We take a unique approach to labor and delivery pre-admission. Our staff will guide expecting mothers through every stage of the process, from tours of our facilities, to classes related to childbirth and parenting, to pre-registration, to learning about amenities such as private rooms and private dining.

Life Begins at NYM


Through the Life Begins Program we offer a variety of classes related to childbirth and parenting. Call the Life Begins line for more information.

Private Rooms

Private rooms can be obtained through the Life Begins Program  by contacting us at the number above. Expecting mothers can request a private room in person by visiting NYM's Admitting Department, on the first floor of the Miner Pavilion. Please keep in mind that insurance companies do not cover the cost of a private room and payment must be satisfied prior to admission.

Private Dining

For our patients who would like to experience private dining while at the Hospital, NYM offers a private dining menu through Life Begins. There will be an additional charge as private dining is not covered by insurance.

For more information, download our brochure or call 855.LIFE.NYM (855.543.3696).
