Personalized Maternity Services for Mothers & Fathers-to-Be

Pregnancy is an exciting yet nerve-racking time for many as they are eager to welcome their newborn to the world. Our professional maternity team understands the many emotions you experience during this time, not to mention the countless decisions you’ll make along the way. We want to make the choice of where you have your baby stress-free and easy.

At Houston Healthcare, we are proud to offer high-quality, individualized maternity care in a family-centered environment. From prenatal care to diagnostic imaging and childbirth, our experienced maternity team has comprehensive services for moms, babies, and families. Our goal is to help you transition from pregnancy to parenthood in a safe, comforting environment.

Houston Medical Center - The Women's Center

The Women’s Center, opened in September 1997, offers family-centered, quality care for women and infants.

Women who deliver their newborns at Houston Healthcare have the benefit of remaining in one room for labor, delivery, and recovery. The Women's Center staff practices "mother-baby nursing," where one nurse cares for both mom and baby throughout their stay. Other features of The Women's Center include two special operating suites for C-sections, a Level II neonatal intensive care nursery, outpatient testing rooms, and a classroom for educational programs and breastfeeding consultation.

Education is an integral part of our family-centered maternity care. We want to include parents, brothers, sisters, special partners, and others significant to the family group.

In-hospital education includes:

  • One-on-one parenting and baby care instruction from your nurse
  • A lactation consultant specially trained to assist with breastfeeding, both in the hospital and after you go home
  • Audio-visual aids about baby care for viewing in your room
  • Printed educational material to read during your stay and to take home.

Pediatric Care

Children are a gift, and at Houston Medical Center, we give them special care when they’re sick. Pediatric Services provides inpatient care from newborns to young adults.

Children receive care in a child-friendly environment surrounded by pediatric specialists. We have a 9-bed pediatric unit and a medical staff of pediatricians all certified by the American Board of Pediatrics. Pediatric Services is located on the 2nd floor in the Main Tower.
