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.
Although mothers are the preferred caregivers for their infants, Family-Centered Maternity Care does not expect you to care for your infant alone. Instead, a mother-baby nurse will care for you, your baby, and your family in the comfort and convenience of your room.
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.
