COVID-19 and Pregnancy - An Update for our Patients
We would like to take this opportunity to update you about your maternity care during the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, and assure you that our dedicated team of expert nurses, physicians and midwives are committed to providing safe and effective care to every patient who walks through our doors.
The Women's and Children’s Center at HCA Houston Healthcare Kingwood welcomes more than 2,500 babies into the world each year. We offer compassionate, quality obstetrical care with a comprehensive program under one roof, which includes birthing rooms, antepartum suites, lactation clinic and obstetrical emergency department, if needed.
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. As an International Board of Lactation Consultants Care Award-winning facility, our team of experts is dedicated to supporting a healthy start for you and your baby. In addition to routine pregnancies, we also care for women with high-risk conditions such as, multiple pregnancy, pre-term labor, preeclampsia, diabetes, and more.
Our team is comprised of not only experienced, board-certified obstetricians, but also maternal-fetal subspecialists, neonatologists, and anesthesiologists. Our nurses are experienced in labor and delivery, baby care, postpartum care and breastfeeding, and we also provide board-certified lactation consultants. We also house an in-hospital OB/GYN 24/7 (or OB hospitalist) who evaluates women with obstetric issues, consults with the patient's primary physician or OB/GYN, and is ready for any obstetric emergency that might arise.
Kingwood maternity and childbirth services
We are dedicated to making your baby’s birth an amazing beginning for you and your family. We know that today’s mother has definite wishes about her birthing experience and it is our goal to fulfill those wishes. Our Women's and Children's Center offers spacious birthing and mother-baby units, celebration meals for new parents and sleeping accommodations for an additional family member. Our family-centered unit supports rooming-in, where your baby will be kept in your room as much as possible, and encourages immediate and continuous skin-to-skin contact of mother and baby within the first hour of life.
All of our postpartum nurses are trained to assist our mothers and babies with breastfeeding. In addition, board-certified lactation consultants (IBCLC) round daily in our postpartum and newborn nursery units to provide education and recommendations based on the needs of mother and baby.
We also have the technology and medical expertise to provide specialty care if needed, including high-risk antepartum suites, Level III Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU), and maternal and neonatal transport by air and ground should a higher level of care be needed for mom or baby.
