Galveston Campus Birthing Suite Tours
UTMB Health offers exceptional care for mothers and their healthy newborns at John Sealy Hospital in Galveston. Our newly renovated Labor and Delivery unit includes spacious birthing suites and mother/baby rooms that offer a family-centered birth experience.
Here, families stay in the same room throughout labor, delivery and immediate recovery, then move to a mother/baby room until discharged. These rooms can comfortably accommodate family members and caregivers including physicians, midwives, nurses, and the pediatric team.
Specialized care and amenities:
- Couplet Care is provided by a nurse who 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.
- Comfort amenities in each suite with convertible sleep chairs, refrigerator, and a flat-screen TV.
- Spacious suites with private bathroom and walk-in shower.
Tours are approximately 30 minutes and are held at 10:00 am and 4:00 pm
the first and third Sunday each month.
