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.
At HCA Houston Healthcare Northwest, we are here to give your family a great start. We offer a full range of labor and delivery services to support routine pregnancies, as well as specialized care for high risk pregnancies.
As a Texas Ten Step designated hospital, we are dedicated to improving health outcomes for lactating women and their infants through evidence-based practices. We also offer educational support through a variety of childbirth education, breastfeeding and NICU CPR classes before your due date and a newborn screening program after your delivery. We have been recognized by Healthgrades as a recipient of the 2020 Labor and Delivery Excellence Award™ for superior clinical care of women during and after childbirth.
We understand the importance of having an experienced team by your side before, during and after childbirth. Our labor and delivery team cares for all your needs through the collaboration of our team of doctors, registered nurses, operating room technicians, certified nurses' assistants and childbirth educators. We have anesthesiologists, neonatologists in-house 24 hours a day, neonatal nursing staff and lactation consultants ready to provide round-the-clock care for you and your newborn.
Northwest Houston maternity and childbirth services
We are honored to be a part of your journey and are dedicated to providing expert care for you and your baby in a warm, welcoming environment. Here, you'll find private labor and delivery rooms as well as private postpartum suites, private bathrooms, and sleeping accommodations for an additional family member. We also provide a concierge room for the comfort of family members who visit.
After birth, we support skin-to-skin contact between mother and baby within the first hour of your baby's life to bond. Our board-certified lactation consultants are on hand to help and support you during the first few feedings. If necessary, our onsite 22-bed Level III neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) is always prepared to take care of premature or ill newborns. We also provide maternal and neonatal transport by air and ground should a higher level of care be needed for mom or baby.
Labor and delivery at HCA Houston Healthcare
