Mother/Newborn Couplet Care

The Women & Children's Center at Kingwood Medical CenterWe understand the importance of mothers and their newborns bonding after their arrival in this world, which is why we offer couplet care. With couplet care, both mother and baby are cared for by the same nursing team in order to provide cohesive healthy support in a secure, caring environment.

Your baby is able to stay in your room at all times, even while examinations are performed, to help you learn to care for your baby and nurture bonding. 

Breastfeeding Support

Kingwood Medical Center’s team will fully support your breastfeeding efforts in order for you and your baby to have a positive experience.

Kingwood Medical Center is proud to have earned the Texas 10-Step designation from the Texas Department of State Health Services. The Texas 10-Step Program encourages breastfeeding as the preferred method of feeding for newborns and infants.

If you need help learning to breastfeed, our lactation specialists are available 24 hours a day to help with problems latching on, engorgement, sore nipples, under or over supply and other common challenges.

Security

No matter where they are in our hospital, the safety and security of newborns is our top concern. Our Newborn Nursery is on the same floor as our postpartum unit (where you will be recovering) and no baby can leave that floor without our security system alerting staff.

We also use additional safety measures, such as specific employee badges and color-coded uniforms, that let us know which staff members have permission to transport infants.

Newborn Photos

At your request, a professional photographer can take photos of your new arrival. Sign-in to our login to our Mom365 baby photography website to view, download or share the images with family and friends.
