Our Approach

Sharing the miracle of birth is our focus at The Children's Hospital of San Antonio. We provide expert labor and delivery services in a home-like setting. The Children's Hospital of San Antonio offers infants access to a full range of pediatric medical and surgical subspecialists. Our highest level of newborn intensive care, makes us well prepared to handle high-risk newborns and complicated deliveries.

Maternal and Fetal Care

The Center for Maternal and Fetal Care specialists work with obstetricians, pediatric specialists, geneticists and surgeons to provide comprehensive care for high risk pregnancies such as:

  • Multiple Gestation
  • Fetal Growth restriction
  • Adolescent or advanced maternal age
  • Suspected congenital anomalies


Our skilled nurses involve families with the care of their newborn, including offering tips on how to feed, bathe and change baby when possible. When a baby is in the NICU, we know it can be overwhelming and even frightening. We encourage family members to learn together.

A mother-baby nurse will offer guidance and help with specific questions on baby care. The nursing staff wants to involve moms and dads in the daily care for their baby as much as possible. We invite families to be involved in their baby’s treatment plan.
