We take the health of women in our community seriously and are strongly committed to providing the highest level of excellence in health care to women of all ages. Whatever stage of life you are in, we are working hard to provide the services you need.
The birth of your baby represents the birth of a family as well. Your choice of where to deliver your baby is an important one. At the Family Birth Center, we recognize that this exciting time is filled with great expectations and many questions. We are dedicated to meeting your expectations with our state-of-the-art facilities and our experienced and committed staff.
Our Patient- and Family Centered Care philosophy recognizes the importance of the new relationships and responsibilities that come with having a child. The goal is to obtain the best possible healthy outcomes for all members of the family.
Through Mother-Baby care, you and your baby will be cared for by the same nurse in the comfort and convenience of your own room. Our top-notch nursing staff is NRP (neonatal resuscitation provider)-certified and provide personalized care for your baby at your bedside. Mother-Baby nursing promotes bonding and attachment between mother and baby by offering the education and support your family needs to welcome the new baby into your lives and routines. As a result, baby is happy, and you, the new family, leave the hospital more confident in your parenting and infant care skills.
Families and new moms feel at home in our comfortable, spacious birthing suites. Following an uncomplicated pregnancy, your LDRP (labor, delivery, recovery and postpartum) suite becomes a private room designed to provide a nurturing and supportive environment for you, your baby and your family. Medically and technologically, the suites are also state-of-the art and highly equipped. Our Infant Security System provides added protection and safety for our patients and families.
The Family Birth Center includes 34 state-of-the-art, private LDRP (labor, delivery, recovery, postpartum) rooms. In addition to superior quality clinical equipment, each room is equipped with a refrigerator, sleeper sofas, adjustable lighting, TV/DVD/CD electronic system and an Internet connection. We also offer an “online nursery.” With your permission, a professional photographer will photograph your beautiful bundle, and the photo will be posted on our secure Web site, where you can direct family and friends. To learn more about these services, call 713-897-2380.
In the event that you have a high-risk pregnancy and need to be hospitalized for an extended period of time before you baby is born, we also provide specialized high-risk antepartum care. The staff of this 12-bed unit is trained to care for your needs and support you through any unexpected turn of events. They also help prepare you for the upcoming delivery of your child, so that you and your baby will achieve a healthy outcome.
To help make your childbirth experience as comfortable as possible, the Family Birth Center offers a full range of pain management options. Our healing environment includes an Early Labor Lounge, hydrotherapy spas, and a spacious Family Lounge with dining area to further enhance our home-like atmosphere. 24-hour epidural anesthesia is also available.
