Who will deliver your baby at UTMB Women’s HealthCare?
We’re so happy that you’ve decided to have your
baby at UTMB. One of the most frequently asked questions
from patients is “Who will deliver my baby?”
Because of the nature of 24/7 coverage, our
physician group rotates “on-call” coverage in our hospital. Though each
of our doctors would like to be able to promise he/she will deliver
your baby, your doctor can not be available 24 hours a day. Our private
UTMB Women’s HealthCare Group rotates the call among themselves for night time
and week-end call, so it might be possible that you would be delivered
by one of the other faculty physicians within the group.
If you are scheduled for an induction or C-section,
our goal is to schedule your procedure on a day when your doctor is on
call, and she/he will deliver your baby during those times.
But one thing holds true for all of our physicians -- they are all
highly-skilled, compassionate caregivers who love to deliver babies!
