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.
We know it's important for you to receive expert, compassionate pregnancy care and birthing services close to home in the Pasadena community, and that's what you'll get at HCA Houston Healthcare Southeast.
We have been recognized by Healthgrades as a recipient of the 5-Star Recipient for Vaginal Delivery and C-Section Delivery, Labor and Delivery Excellence Award™ and Obstetrics and Gynecology Excellence Award™ for superior clinical care of women during and after childbirth. In addition, HCA Houston Southeast is a designated Texas Ten Step hospital, meaning our maternity care practices fully support breastfeeding.
Our four Women’s Care Centers, a department of HCA Houston Southeast, provide low- to moderate-risk pregnancy care and midwifery services. Our nurse-midwives provide prenatal care in a clinic setting, while consulting with board-certified physicians. They can also help their patients deliver as well as serve as first assist on caesarean sections (C-sections).
Southeast Houston maternity services
We have everything in place to assist you quickly, including obstetricians and anesthesia services available 24/7. We also have on operating room reserved for C-sections.
Our neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) is prepared to care for babies who need specialized medical attention. Here, our board-certified neonatologists work with neonatal nurse practitioners who staff the unit 24/7 and NICU registered nurses who monitor and care for each baby in the unit.
We work hard to follow your birth plan and support the bonding experience between baby and mom. The first hour after birth is when your baby is most alert. This is the time for skin-to-skin contact, cuddling, holding, bonding and establishing breastfeeding. Your nurse-midwife will be with you to guide you through those first moments and we also have certified lactation consultants available. Our support services include:
- Breastfeeding support
- High-risk pregnancy care
- Level III NICU
- Maternity classes and support groups
- Prenatal care
If you are considering delivering at HCA Houston Southeast, 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.
