Birth Services

CHRISTUS Health is here to help you prepare to give birth. We assist in developing a birth plan that is truly tailored to the experience you would like to have on your delivery day.

Every detail before, during, and after birth is handled with compassion and support as you embark upon your new journey.

Our approach

Our staff recognizes that every woman is different, so each childbirth experience is distinctive and personalized. We hope to answer any questions you may have about what to expect from pre-admission, childbirth classes, labor, delivery, and your stay with us.

Family-centered care

We recognize that the family, however you define it, is mom’s main source of strength and support. With that in mind, all baby care is completed in your hospital room.

Moms and families get one-on-one instruction and personal assistance with taking care of a baby – from feeding to diapering to care of the umbilical cord.

This type of care promotes family bonding and attachment. Providing bedside care enables moms and families to participate in the care of the newborn.

Mother-baby nursing

Instead of having two nurses, one for you and one for your infant, mothers, and babies will be cared for as a ‘couplet’ by one mother–baby nurse.

Your mother-baby nurse is expertly cross-trained to understand both parent’s and newborn’s needs.

You will have more ‘quality time’ care with your nurse and fewer interruptions.
