Labor and delivery

Just as every baby is unique, so is every delivery. As your trusted care partner, we work to provide a personalized birthing experience that begins long before your first contraction and continues well after delivery.

Maternity care in Greater Houston

Delivering over 30,000 babies each year at eight hospital locations, we are dedicated to providing compassionate care for one of life's most momentous events.

More Houston babies are born in our hospitals than anywhere else. HCA Houston Healthcare hospitals have been recognized by Healthgrades with their Labor and Delivery Excellence Award for superior clinical care of women during and after childbirth. Above all, we are dedicated to elevating the standard of care for you and your and baby.

Obstetric care services we provide

In addition to labor and delivery, we provide education, support groups and tours to help you and your family prepare for pregnancy, birth and parenthood. We also support the bonding experience between you and your baby with rooming-in and skin-to-skin contact.

High-risk pregnancy care

Many of our locations offer comprehensive care for high-risk pregnancies that require additional monitoring and support. A pregnancy may be considered high-risk for a variety of reasons, including existing health conditions, maternal age, lifestyle, multiple pregnancy and health issues that happen before or during pregnancy.

Our multidisciplinary teams are committed to helping you achieve the best possible outcome and include maternal fetal medicine specialists and perinatal navigators. If you are identified as high-risk, we provide perinatal navigation programs at select locations that offer high-risk specialized support before, during, and after delivery. In the case of emergency, or if a higher level of maternal care is needed while receiving treatment, HCA Houston provides maternal transport by both ground and air to get you the care you need as quickly as possible.

Within our network, the Woman's Hospital of Texas offers the most comprehensive care in the Houston region for high-risk pregnancies, including Woman's Maternal Fetal Care Center, APU Unit, Maternal Assessment Center, Perinatal Diabetes Center, 24/7 emergency maternal-fetal transport care and a Level IV Neonatal Intensive Care Units (NICU).

Neonatal care

We are dedicated to helping babies get home sooner. Across our family of hospitals, we provide intermediate and advanced neonatal care at our Level II and Level III NICU. We are able to provide your child with the highest level of care available for newborns at our Level IV NICU located at the Woman's Hospital of Texas. This advanced care nursery has the equipment to care for the sickest of babies as well as access to a full range of healthcare providers, including pediatric subspecialists and specialized nurses. In the case that babies born at an HCA Houston hospital need to be transferred to a higher level NICU, HCA Houston AirLife provides neonatal transport to get them safely there.

As a leading healthcare provider, we are committed to supporting the fight for the health of all moms and babies. We are proud of our 17-year partnership with the March of Dimes, a leading non-profit organization dedicated to improving the health of mothers and babies, particularly those affected by prematurity, birth defects or other infant health problems. At the Woman's Hospital of Texas, we are proud to provide the area's only NICU Family Support program with a full-time March of Dimes NICU family support program coordinator on site.

Prenatal care

Prenatal care services are provided at select centers to ensure that you and your baby receive the best treatment for a healthy pregnancy. Many of our hospitals also have the Texas Ten Step designation, meaning our maternity care practices fully support breastfeeding.

At HCA Houston Healthcare Southeast's Women's Care Center, board-certified nurse midwives and women's health nurse practitioners, consulting with board-certified physicians, provide prenatal care for low- to moderate-risk pregnancy in a clinical setting. Certified nurse midwives focus on support and education while providing expert midwifery care to pregnant patients. Located around the greater Houston area, our Woman's Health clinics allow expecting women to see their OB/GYN for routine prenatal and high-risk pregnancy care while staying close to home.
