Lying-In Committee

The Lying-In Committee was created in honor of the Lying-In Hospital, which was founded in 1799, and was New York's first hospital devoted solely to the care of women in childbirth. Today, NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital's Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology furthers the work started by the Lying-In Hospital, setting new standards in patient care, research, training and community outreach that translate into better medical care for women of all ages.

The Lying-In Committee sponsors the annual Spring Fashion Show and created the Baby Quilt Tile Wall program as an opportunity to further their efforts toward contributing to the health and safety of women during pregnancy.
