Neonatal Intensive Care Unity (NICU)

In any unexpected moment, you can rely on us to be ready should anything unusual arise. Houston Methodist Clear Lake is prepared for those newborns who need extra care. In partnership with Texas Children’s Hospital, our level II NICU, located next to the maternity unit, is staffed by highly trained nurses and expert neonatology providers who monitor our high-risk and premature babies 24/7 on-site at Houston Methodist Clear Lake.

Breast Pump Depot

Because we know that babies do not always come when expected, the Breast Pump Depot at Houston Methodist Clear Lake can provide a brand-new breast pump prior to your discharge. This allows you to learn how to use the pump to express milk prior to going home. Please check with your insurance for this coverage and inform your nurses if you need a breast pump during your stay.

Postpartum Physical Therapy

The weeks following childbirth are an important time for recovering your strength and function. For women, the postpartum period starts right after giving birth and lasts from about six weeks to several months.

Pelvic floor physical therapy addresses postpartum disorders, such as abdominal wall separation, incontinence, constipation and/or pain in the pelvic, vaginal and rectal areas.

Our team of highly specialized physical therapists is well prepared to work with you to optimize your recovery and function. A physician’s referral is required for starting pelvic floor physical therapy. For information or to schedule an appointment, call 281.333.8806.

Maternal Fetal Medicine

Maternal fetal medicine doctors specializing in high-risk pregnancies and prenatal diagnoses, including first-trimester screenings.

Safe Sleep for Your Newborn

At Houston Methodist Childbirth Center at Clear Lake, we are committed to keeping your new baby as safe as possible, both while you are here and after you return home. Sudden Unexpected Infant Death (SUID), which includes Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS), is the leading cause of injury death in infancy. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), there are about 3,400 sleep-related deaths among US babies each year.


Sleep can be a challenge for families with babies, but following safe sleep recommendations can prevent SUID fatalities. Learn more about infant safe sleep recommendations using the following resources.
