Our dedicated staff is here to help you prepare for your delivery in advance so that you feel ready when the time comes to have your baby. Below is a recommended pre-delivery check list. If possible, please have these items completed no later than the early part of your third trimester.
Before your hospital stay, you are encouraged to attend a tour to experience our accommodations and services first-hand. We also offer educational classes for parents and families on childbirth preparation, breastfeeding support, newborn care and other topics. Schedules for campus maternity tours and educational classes are available online.
To schedule a campus tour or register for a class online, visit: memorialhermann.org/classes-events
You may also call (713) 222-CARE to register for a tour or class at your Memorial Hermann campus.
Pre-registering from the comfort of your home is easy and will save you time. Pre-registration for childbirth is required before your admission for delivery and should be completed prior to the 28th week of pregnancy.
After you have submitted your pre-registration form, a representative from the hospital will contact you by phone or email to confirm that your online pre-registration has been completed. Once you have pre-registered online, you should also complete and sign the necessary consent forms. For more information, reach out to the Memorial Hermann hospital campus you selected to have your delivery.
It is recommended that you discuss your birth plan with your physician prior to your arrival to the hospital for delivery.
It is highly recommended to select your baby’s pediatrician prior to delivery. Children’s Memorial Hermann has affiliated pediatrician practices across the Greater Houston Area.
For assistance finding a pediatrician, visit Memorial Hermann Find a Doctor or call (713) 222-CARE. Please call the office of the pediatrician you select to verify that he or she is accepting new patients.
In the third trimester of your pregnancy, it is helpful to begin making a list and gathering the items you will need to take with you to the hospital. Below is a list of suggested items you may want to pack and bring with you for your hospital stay. Please do not bring jewelry, excessive cash, credit cards or other valuables to the hospital.
