West Houston childbirth services

We know that childbirth can be unpredictable. Our goal is to help you feel supported and comfortable throughout your labor and delivery experience.

Types of care we provide

When you arrive to give birth at HCA Houston Healthcare West, you'll first be evaluated in one of our antepartum rooms. As the labor process approaches, you will be moved to one of our labor and delivery suites. This room will contain all necessary monitoring equipment while still maintaining a clean and comfy environment.

Though we are committed to helping mothers deliver vaginally, two adjacent operating rooms are reserved for Cesarean delivery. We also offer comfortable postpartum rooms where you and your baby can bond and where lactation support is available. Our labor and delivery services include:

After delivery, we perform initial check-ups. From there, you will be moved to a private postpartum room, and your baby will go to the nursery for further tests. Our lactation consultants are available to support both you and your baby and assist with the first feeding. For newborns who need specialized care, we have a Level II NICU.

Labor and delivery classes

We have been recognized by Healthgrades as a recipient of the 2022 Labor and Delivery Excellence Award™ for superior clinical care of women during and after childbirth. Our facility has nine labor suites, 30 postpartum rooms and two VIP suites. We also offer extra amenities that are designed to improve your experience.

We believe that prenatal education and support programs make a real difference in how women experience pregnancy and birth. Whether you're a first-time mom or an experienced parent, we encourage you to take advantage of our many and varied educational opportunities.

It's best to register during your fifth month of pregnancy. We provide a childbirth preparation and breastfeeding class to help prepare expectant mothers and their families for their newest family member.
