Breastfeeding & Lactation Services

Breastfeeding is a special time between mother and baby, and it is a bond that can take time for you and your baby to establish. As a Texas Ten Step designated hospital, we encourage breastfeeding as the preferred method of feeding newborns and infants. Lactation support is available to breastfeeding mothers. Our nursing staff is well trained to assist mothers with breastfeeding decisions to ensure you are comfortable feeding your baby during your stay with us and at home.


After discharge, lactation consultants and breastfeeding counselors are available for continued support and counseling. Call 281.274.0129 to leave a message and a nurse will return your call within 24 hours. For urgent needs concerning your baby’s health, please contact your pediatrician.

BIRTHING NURSES: Our nurses are experienced, dedicated and have a true love and passion for newborns. We understand the impact a caring nurse can have on a mother’s birthing experience, which is why each mother is assigned a devoted nurse to care for her throughout her labor and delivery. A neonatal nurse, who brings a specialized level of training, is also present at every delivery to provide responsive care to your newborn. Our nursing team is dedicated to the health, safety and comfort of you and your baby before, during and after delivery.

Vaginal Birth After Cesarean (VBAC)

Trial of labor after Cesarean (TOLAC) is a planned or attempted vaginal birth after Cesarean (VBAC) and is a birthing option available to expecting moms at our hospital.


Please consult with your OB-GYN to determine the delivery method best for you.

Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU)

In any unexpected moment, you can rely on us to be ready should anything unusual arise. Houston Methodist Sugar Land is prepared for those newborns who need extra care. In partnership with Texas Children’s Hospital, our level III 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 Sugar Land.


Babies who require a higher level of care are stabilized and transported to Texas Children’s Hospital in the Texas Medical Center. Safe and quick transfer is provided by Texas Children’s Hospital Kangaroo Crew. This is just one more assurance that your baby is receiving the best care.

Choosing a Pediatrician

The state requires every newborn to receive screenings which is why it is important to appoint a pediatrician when you register for delivery. Should you choose a pediatrician who does not practice at our hospital, an attending pediatrician who is on-staff will evaluate your newborn during your stay with us.


To find the right pediatrician, click here or call 281.274.7500.

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 281.275.0450.

OB Emergencies

We have dedicated board-certified OB-GYNs on-site 24/7 to provide round-the-clock care for women and babies. Our partnership with Ob Hospitalist Group of Texas, a group of dedicated in-patient physicians who work exclusively at our hospital, allows our Childbirth Center to provide in-house 24/7 obstetric-designated emergency services for expecting moms who are 16 weeks or greater in their pregnancy.


These highly skilled OB hospitalists are trained to stabilize and manage an array of high-risk patients and have additional training for:
