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.
Delivering more than 3,400 babies each year means it's clear that we make maternity care a priority. HCA Houston Healthcare Clear Lake provides compassionate, dedicated care throughout pregnancy, during labor, and after delivery.
Not only are we one of the most experienced maternity hospitals in the Houston region, but we offer comprehensive care for high-risk pregnancies in the Houston Bay Area, including a maternal navigation program, a high-risk antepartum unit, and maternal fetal medicine specialists on hand should complications arise. In addition, our Level IIIb neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) provides specialty care for babies born before the 26th week of gestation.
We are a designated Texas Ten Step hospital, meaning our maternity care practices fully support breastfeeding. In addition, we provide classes, support groups and tours to help prepare for pregnancy, birth, breastfeeding, and parenthood. All instructors are registered nurses (RNs) specializing in parent and infant care and are certified in Lamaze childbirth education.
Clear Lake labor and delivery services
At HCA Houston Clear Lake, our experienced labor and delivery team understands the needs of expectant families and delivers expert, compassionate, family-centered care to every patient, every day.
When the big day arrives, we will be ready to care for you and your family during this special time. After your baby's birth, you will be transferred to a private room in our postpartum unit, a specialized unit dedicated to the care and recovery of new mothers and babies.
We support the bonding experience with skin-to-skin contact between mom and baby within the first hour of life. We also provide bedside infant and mother care to ensure 24/7 rooming-in and have a newborn nursery available, if required. For breastfeeding mothers, our board certified lactation consultants are always available. Other support services include:
- Breastfeeding support
- High risk pregnancy
- Level III NICU
- Maternity classes
- Prenatal and postpartum physical therapy
If you are considering delivering at HCA Houston Clear Lake, we invite you to tour our women's services facility, or find an OB/GYN. In addition, we offer women's health services related to breast health and gynecology.
