UTMB League City Campus offers exceptional care for mothers and their newborns in spacious birthing suites. Here, families stay in the same room throughout their birthing experience from admission to discharge.
Couplet Care provides a family-centered approach to the birthing experience. One nurse cares for both the mother and her baby during their stay. This nurse is specialized in caring for the family as a unit and providing breastfeeding support during these important first days. Couplet Care allows the mother and baby to share the same room which gives the family more confidence in caring for the baby, provides a better understanding of baby's feeding patterns, and more opportunity for mother and baby to experience skin-to-skin contact which increases bonding.
Specialized nursery services are also available for infants with minor complications born at UTMB League City Campus.
