      Moms Love Medical City

      Landon TapellaJacqueline Tapella was 42-weeks pregnant with her first child when she had to be induced for a C-section at Medical City Dallas Hospital in June 2011. "I had a really great experience," Jacqueline said. "We just felt very well taken care of."

      Amy Smith loved her obstetrician and her first delivery experience at Medical City she chose to have her second daughter at the hospital a year and a half later. "I don’t feel like I’m just another patient," Smith said.

      Maternal Transport

      Maternal TransportMedical City Women’s has a Maternal Transport Team dedicated to providing a prompt and efficient transport for patients with high-risk pregnancies. This team is staffed with highly-skilled and obstetrically-trained registered nurses with advanced education as transport nurses. This service provides transport via ambulance, helicopter or airplane featuring a self-contained mobile intensive care environment. The maternal transport focuses on keeping a high-risk baby in the mother’s womb by extending pregnancy while moving mom to a higher level of care. Medical City has a team of obstetricians, anesthesiologists and neonatologists in house 24/7 to care for the high-risk mom and baby upon arrival. Medical City is currently the only hospital in North Texas where a mother facing a high-risk pregnancy can deliver her baby and stay together to be treated all under one roof.

Classes include preparation for childbirth for first-time parents, Lamaze, Cesarean section, breastfeeding, pre-natal yoga, daddy boot camp and more.
