Labor & Delivery Tour
Postpartum - Mother-Baby Unit
The Mother-baby unit provides a quiet environment where you, your baby and your family can continue with the bonding process. Through couplet care, you and your baby will be cared for by the same nurses in your own private room. Having your baby at your bedside allows you to respond promptly to your baby’s needs and assists with successful breastfeeding. We practice couplet care unless your baby needs specialized attention in our NICU.
Your mother-baby experience includes a beautiful suite that includes a place for your birth partner to stay overnight, personalized one-on-one education with a certified nurse for the care of you and your baby, cable TV and DVD players in every room, high-speed Internet access to communicate with your friends and family, and one-on-one breastfeeding support from our Certified Lactation Consultants.
Breastfeeding can be one of the most beneficial things you do for your baby, but often is a challenging process. In addition to providing a special time of bonding, breastfeeding reduces your child’s risk of infections while helping your body recover from the stress of pregnancy, labor and delivery. We have our own certified lactation consultants that provide guidance by educating parents in a one-on-one setting throughout your hospital stay. If you still have some questions once you get home, need outpatient consultation visits or need to rent a breast pump, please contact our Lactaction Consultants at (281) 644-7345.
You can rest assured that Memorial Hermann Katy is prepared for both routine and high-risk pregnancies.

This unit is equipped to provide a full complement of tests during pregnancy to monitor you and your baby’s heart rate and other signs of fetal wellbeing. Should you and your baby need this specialized care during your pregnancy, we offer a wide range of prenatal diagnostic testing and high-risk pregnancy services, through our partnership with McGovern Medical School at UTHealth and the High Risk Pregnancy / Maternal Fetal Medicine Clinic.
To help you be better prepared for what to expect, Memorial Hermann Katy offers you a free booklet via download of A New Beginning, Your Personal Guide to Postpartum Care available anytime throughout your pregnancy or after.
