Expert Maternity Care in Mansfield
One of the biggest decisions you’ll make is where to deliver your baby. At Texas Health Hospital Mansfield, you will find a compassionate environment focused on family-centered maternity care philosophies, with the latest medical technology to provide only the best for you and your baby.
Our Women's Center boasts the newest and biggest rooms in the area. Each room has a couch that folds into a bed for an overnight guest.
- Planning for the Big Day
Experience has strengthened and shaped our birthing philosophy, and we strive to provide you with the type of delivery you desire in a very secure and comforting environment. Our Online Childbirth Classes provide you with a personal journey through prepared childbirth in the comfort of your own home. You have the chance to ask unlimited questions during a scheduled hospital tour with a Labor and Delivery RN. Plus, we have Prenatal Breastfeeding classes to help you prepare for feeding your little one.
- Delivering Your Bundle of Joy
Your baby will be born in the comfort of one of our labor, delivery and recovery suites. Epidurals and anesthesia are available around the clock if you choose them.
Following delivery, you will have a private room for quiet recuperation and for sharing precious first moments with your newborn. We appreciate the important role of fathers, siblings and grandparents in the childbirth experience. And, because we believe strongly in the mother/baby bond, we request that each mother spend the first hour with her baby before allowing additional family or friends into the room.
As you recover, you’ll experience snuggle time from 1 pm – 3 pm each day, when the lights are turned down and interruptions to patients are very limited. This allows you and your baby to get some much needed rest or enjoy some quiet time getting to know each other.
- Your Baby's Health
Texas Health Hospital Mansfield has specially trained nurses known as nurse clinicians. They attend each delivery to help with newborn stabilization and provide the highest quality care. As a Level I Neonatal Facility, our Women’s Services Unit now offers in-house neonatal services in our Well Newborn Nursery. Additionally, respiratory care technicians attend every Cesarean section in order to assure extra safety for your infant.
A lactation consultant is available to assist new mothers with breastfeeding and is accessible by telephone after discharge for continued support.
Every infant receives a hearing screening before discharge. Even after you and your bundle of joy head home, we continue our family-centered care.
- Safety and Security
Each labor room is equipped with a state-of-the-art fetal monitoring and charting system. An infant security system provides valuable added protection for the mothers and infants in our care and the department is locked 24/7.
