Hospital nursery

Medical City hospitals believe in keeping mom and baby as close as possible, as long as possible. Our full-service newborn nurseries are located just around the corner from our labor and delivery rooms. If mom wants to get some much-needed rest or baby needs a little extra attention for health reasons, our specially trained neonatal nurses will be ready to care for baby nearby.

Skin-to-skin contact

The best place for your healthy, full-term baby is on your chest, next to your heart. Medical City Healthcare hospitals recognize the numerous documented benefits associated with immediate skin-to-skin contact, including regulating body temperature and heart rate, controlling anxiety and blood sugar and increasing the chance of successful breastfeeding.

New-parent support and resources

The big day that you’ve waited for is finally here! Questions about pregnancy are replaced by questions about childbirth and postnatal care. After you leave the hospital, care continues with our support groups and classes designed for new moms and parents, including new moms and lactation support groups, infant CPR and mom and baby yoga.

These specially equipped and staffed neonatal intensive care units provide the latest technology, including a live-feed NICU monitor so you can check on your baby 24/7 no matter where you are.
