Programs and Services

Support for your childbirth experience

Texas Children’s Pavilion for Women has developed programs and services to ensure that you have everything you need as you welcome a new member of your family. Beautiful delivery rooms and attentive nursing staff are important, but we offer even more through meaningful opportunities for education and support from specialists who are passionate about maternal and newborn health.

Our experienced labor and delivery team is here to help you plan for your birth experience. Experience childbirth in our state-of-the-art labor and delivery unit.

If you’re having a planned Cesarean (or C-section) birth, we’ll prepare you for surgery in the comfort of a private birthing prep and recovery room. Here, you’ll be well cared for by our Labor and Delivery team.

When your baby is born, we at Texas Children’s Pavilion for Women want you to have all the tools you need to create a strong foundation for successful breastfeeding and bonding with your new baby. Our philosophy of family-centered maternity care directly supports breastfeeding and bonding. After you and your newborn have left the hospital, the Baby Bistro is an outpatient clinic available to support you throughout your breastfeeding experience.

When critical complications of pregnancy arise, we offer specialized, intensive care to ensure the best possible outcomes for mothers and babies alike.

The Pavilion for Women is home to one of the nation’s few ICUs dedicated solely to critical care obstetrics. Offering comprehensive high-risk perinatal services combined with expert subspecialty care through Baylor College of Medicine, we’re making a dramatic difference in the lives of expectant mothers with critical complications of pregnancy, including:

  • Placenta accreta
  • Hypertensive disorders
  • Congenital heart defects
  • Diabetes and other endocrine disorders
  • Cancer
  • Organ transplant
  • Complications of adolescent pregnancy

As one of the largest hospital-based midwifery practices in the area, we offer experience, expertise and thoughtfulness to each of our patients.

We’re here to help you give your baby a healthy start in life. That’s why we offer you support services through Baby Bistro in the Pavilion for Women and Lactation and Breastfeeding Support at Texas Children’s Hospital. Although studies show that exclusive breastfeeding for at least four months provides the greatest benefit, any amount of time that you can breastfeed will help you and your baby.

We create a nurturing environment so you and your baby can bond from the first moments of life.
