A Memorable and Positive Childbirth Experience

There is nothing more exciting than the birth of a baby. At Children’s Memorial Hermann Hospital, it’s our goal to make every childbirth experience as memorable and positive as possible. Our private, state-of-the-art labor and delivery rooms feature advanced equipment and amenities for convenience and comfort. Our caring staff is trained to care for all childbirth needs including high-risk obstetrics.

Prepared for Any Situation

A maternal-fetal medicine specialist from McGovern Medical School at UTHealth Houston is on call 24/7 for fetal monitoring and ultrasound imaging. After delivery, patients enjoy our family-centered atmosphere with a rooming-in option for spending this special time with a loved one. For babies who require special care, the onsite Children’s Memorial Hermann Hospital NICU is staffed with neonatologists, doctors who specialize in the care of complex newborns, and specially trained nurses.

The Best Nurses for Mom and Baby

Certified registered nurses work with some of the nation’s best doctors to ensure that every woman we serve has a memorable, positive childbirth experience. Our nurses have broad experience in high-risk, as well uncomplicated deliveries, and bring a unique level of expertise to expectant mothers and their families.

We also provide a full range of high-quality facilities, technologies and services for our patients.
