Overview

Women have unique health care needs. That’s why we created the Center for Women’s Health, to provide a warm and welcoming space for women to receive services tailored specifically for them.

We provide a full spectrum of obstetric and gynecologic programs and are equipped to address a wide range of issues including:

  •  Abnormal Pap tests 
  • High-risk pregnancy 
  • Infertility 
  • Menopause 
  • Premenstrual syndrome (remove hyphen) 
  • Urinary incontinence 

Many diagnostic and treatment options can occur right in our center. When other services (such as cancer care) are needed, we work closely with other units at the hospital to ensure that your needs are met in a seamless and effective way.

Postpartum support

Postpartum depression (PPD) affects up to 10% of women following the delivery of a baby and may occur any time within the first year after giving birth. PPD can range from the more common "baby blues" to severe depression that threatens the well-being of both mother and baby. 

PPD symptoms may include: 

  • Changes in appetite 
  • Difficulty concentrating 
  • Difficulty sleeping 
  • Feeling overwhelmed or hopeless 
  • Feelings of guilt 
  • Lack of energy 
  • Thoughts of suicide (in extreme cases) 
  • Withdrawal from friends and family 

Our center provides support and treatment for PPD, often using a combination of antidepressants and therapy.

If you or someone you know is experiencing these symptoms, please call your physician or a mental health professional immediately. If you feel as if you may harm yourself or your baby, go to Staten Island University Hospital's emergency department immediately.

For more information, please contact the or call their helpline at (631) 422-2255
