As an expectant parent, you probably have a lot of questions. If you are already a parent, you may be wondering about your growing family. Fortunately, childbirth and breastfeeding educators at Houston Methodist Sugar Land Hospital are here to help, before and after delivery.
Childbirth classes are taught by a Registered Nurse and usually include a visit from a pediatrician and an anesthesiologist.
Breastfeeding has been proven to have many benefits, including boosting your baby’s immunity and enhancing the bond between mother and child. For those moms who would like to learn how to breastfeed, the Birthing Center staff includes lactation consultants who will be happy to address all of your needs. If you have questions after you have been discharged from the hospital, please ask to speak to our lactation consultant by calling 281-274-7080.
A free tour of the birthing center, including the post- partum and nursery areas, is available for the expectant parents and family members. Expectant parents are given the opportunity to ask questions and to become more familiar with the hospital and the services provided.
No appointments are necessary. If these times are not convenient, call 281.274.7080 to schedule another time.
Please notify the information desk in the lobby of the main entrance of the hospital that you are interested in a birthing center tour.
Having a baby is a family event and we find that most moms and babies are eager to go home as soon as possible. We recommend moms stay at least 24 hours after a vaginal birth and 72 hours after a Cesarean birth to maintain the following:
The State of Texas requires that all infants be transported in a car seat when going home. Plan for transportation in advance with your family. Discharge time is 1 p.m. daily. Please bring an age-appropriate car seat to the hospital on the day the baby goes home.
