The Birth Place For Moms and Babies
The third floor at TMC is dedicated to women. Patients at The Birth Place enjoy spacious labor and delivery suites with large picture window views and comfortable seating, a comfortable waiting area for family and friends, and an advanced security system for the safety of babies and moms.
With two surgical suites on the floor, women can undergo C-sections and other medical procedures and recover in the same area of the hospital.
The Birth Place also features a dedicated triage area for expectant moms so they can bypass the Emergency Department for pregnancy-related concerns. And for the weeks leading up to birth, TMC offer a comprehensive menu of classes to help expectant families get prepared.
Certified Lactation Specialists are available to provide breastfeeding support to moms and babies while in the hospital and even after they get home. All babies born at TMC receive newborn screenings, including includes blood, hearing and heart tests, to check for serious but rare conditions. The Texas Department of State Health Services recognizes TMC as having a Distinguished Newborn Hearing Screening Program, which is the highest rating possible for a hospital in Texas.
