Founded in 1977

Mission Statement

The aim of The New York Perinatal Society is to encourage communication among members of different disciplines in order to share ideas, educate each other, and improve prenatal, perinatal, and neonatal care.


The New York Perinatal Society was founded in 1977 by physicians interested in perinatal medicine, obstetrics and pediatrics. The society celebrates an annual scientific meeting in the Spring. A distinguished speaker will present the latest information and knowledge in the field of perinatal medicine. In addition, junior faculty and fellows present abstracts and poster presentations. A prize is awarded for the best paper. Membership is open to physicians, as well as non-physicians with experience in research or patient care that share these interests. There is also an associate membership for people with related interests or similar experience but different backgrounds of training, such as sonographers or geneticists.
