Maternity Services

Medical Center of McKinney is the area’s birth place. Our labor, delivery, recovery suites provide the warm, comfortable feeling of home with the latest technology to provide a highly personalized, peace-of-mind, birth experience for the parents and family.

Offering a Level III neonatal intensive care nursery, Medical Center of McKinney can care for babies born at least 28-weeks gestation or later.  Patients and families appreciate our dedication to personal care. The maternity services team is committed to family-centered birthing and dedicated to teaching and support so that mom and the entire family are comfortable when it comes time to take the newest member of the family home.

Tours of Maternity Services are provided for expecting moms every Tuesday at 7 p.m. on the 2nd floor in Labor and Delivery. On the tour you will visit Labor & Delivery, the Newborn Nursery, the Level III Neonatal Intensive Care Unit and Postpartum.  Please come to Labor & Delivery on the second floor to join the tour.

Our private labor, delivery and recovery rooms are specially designed to provide for a smooth and relaxing environment for your delivery. Each room is fully equipped with state-of-the-art equipment, a delivery bed, a recliner, a television and a DVD player.  Our rooms are spaciously designed, allowing room for your family also.  We even have a slide and glide rocker for your baby's first rocking chair.

Texas Ten Step Program

The Texas Ten Step (TTS) Program was developed by the Texas Department of Health (now the Texas Department of State Health Services) in collaboration with The Texas Hospital Association in 1999. It is designed to help hospitals and birthing centers support mothers in breastfeeding before, during and after delivery, with a goal of having 82% of all new mothers breastfeeding at discharge.

Pre-registration & Administration

When you’re experiencing labor, the last thing you want to deal with is paperwork. To avoid this, we urge you to preregister at least two months prior to your due date. Simply complete our on-line preregistration form. We will take care of the rest! 

Upon arrival at the hospital before you deliver, proceed directly to the maternity unit on the second floor. Our staff will help you get settled and comfortable in your room.

Postpartum Services

Once you deliver your new baby, you will be moved to a private room on our postpartum unit.  The postpartum rooms will also provide you a comfortable atmosphere as you recover and begin to prepare for your return home.  Your doctor will determine when you may be discharged from the hospital.

Nursery

Medical Center of McKinney has a full service newborn nursery around the corner from your labor and delivery room.  You can choose to keep your baby with you, or our specially trained nursery nurses will care for your baby while you rest.  The choice is yours. Rest assured, should your baby need special care or if Mom needs some time, Medical Center of McKinney can provide such care in our newborn nursery.

New Mom's Education

Our hospital offers education classes to provide you assistance in preparing for your new baby.  For a complete listing of classes and times, click here.

Prenatal educators and lactation consultants are available to provide you guidance and support if you choose to breastfeed.  If you and your baby should need assistance after you leave the hospital, you are welcomed to give us a call.
