Caring for New Mother & Baby

Before leaving the hospital, every mother receives a copy of Caring for New Mother & Baby, a reference guide for caring for mother and baby while in the hospital and once at home. But, we encourage mothers and labor coaches to read this online guide prior to arriving at The Birth Center for a preview of what to expect during your hospital stay.

Your Birth Plan of Care

At 32-weeks gestation, we encourage expectant mothers to schedule an appointment and meet with our Patient Care Planner to create an individualized Birth Plan of Care. There is no charge for this service and it takes approximately one hour to complete. The Birth Plan of Care is kept with your hospital chart so we may better meet your needs during your stay with us. Please call (903) 606-4641 to schedule your appointment.

During Your Hospital Stay

We offer educational programs, both privately or in a group setting, that provide thorough instruction on topics ranging from newborn care and breastfeeding to information more tailored to the medical needs of the individual patient.

After Your Hospital Stay

If you are interested in learning more about the benefits and techniques of breastfeeding, even after you have left the hospital, we are here to serve you. The Lactation Center is staffed with a board certified Lactation Consultant as well as specially trained Breastfeeding Educators who are committed to helping mothers succeed in breastfeeding their babies.
