The Hospital

We deliver at Houston Methodist Hospital where you and your baby will receive exceptional care and attention!

When do I need to go to the hospital?

If you are past 36-weeks pregnant go to the hospital:

  1. If you are experiencing regular contractions that happen every 5 minutes, are painful, and are 1 minute long for at least an hour.
  2. If you think you are leaking amniotic fluid. It will usually be a large gush of fluid. Even if you are not experiencing contractions you still need to go to the hospital.
  3. If you have any heavy bleeding like your menses. Spotting or brown discharge is normal and not a reason you need to go to the hospital.
  4. If you are not feeling the baby move normally.
  5. If you are experiencing anything that is concerning to you and not resolving.

If you are prior to 36 weeks pregnant go to the hospital:

  1. If you have six or more contractions in an hour that are not alleviated when you rest and hydrate.
  2. If you have bleeding.
  3. If you think you are leaking amniotic fluid.
  4. If you are experiencing anything that is concerning to you and not resolving.

If you are bleeding, contracting, or believe you are in labor, please go directly to labor and delivery at the hospital. You do not need to call us. The hospital will contact us after you have been evaluated.
