At UMC, we encourage a mother-led birthing experience. Our physicians, nurses, and support staff are here to support your birthing preferences and ensure a healthy delivery for you and your baby.
UMC has earned a “distinguished” certification by the Texas Department of State Health Services for ensuring newborns receive hearing screens at birth.
Newborn babies who need intensive medical attention are often admitted into the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU). Of our babies that enter the NICU, 97 percent will go home with their families to live healthy lives.
UMC is a Baby-Friendly Designated Birth Facility by Baby Friendly USA. This reflects our organization's commitment to train staff on the importance of breastfeeding, skin-to-skin contact and rooming-in.
Breastfeeding offers many health advantages to babies and mothers. That's why we encourage all moms to breastfeed exclusively for six months and to continue nursing through baby's first year, even after introducing solid foods. Our certified lactation
specialists support breastfeeding during yourt hospital stay and after discharge.
Grand Expectations was developed with you in mind. We know how stressful it can be if you’re not sure whether or not you may be pregnant. Our healthcare providers will conduct your pregnancy test in complete confidence, and you’ll receive
test results immediately.
