The Childbirth Experience – Family Centered Care

Baylor Scott & White Medical Center at Frisco wants to welcome you, and provide you with some information about our facility and the services we offer for your childbirth experience.  Baylor Frisco is a member of the Alliance for Innovation on Maternal Health (AIM), which helps hospitals improve quality through the implementation of best practices.  AIM is a collaboration between the Texas Department of Health and Human Services and the Texas Hospital Association focused on infant and maternal safety.

A Great Place to Start

Quality is our goal, and the safety of our families is of utmost importance to us.  It shows as we are consistently ranked in the 99th percentile for patient experience as measured by the Press Ganey patient questionnaire which is distributed by CMS (the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services) an arm of the Federal Government.

The Women’s Center at Baylor Scott & White Medical Center – Frisco offers luxurious surroundings and concierge to meet all your needs. And, while these all say “five-star hotel,” don’t be fooled. Our Women’s Center is all about expert service and quality care for you and your baby.  We are here to care for you, from Pregnancy to Parenthood and Everything in Between.

Each suite has a flat panel television and customized furniture to look like a home rather than a hospital room.  All newborn babies are monitored with GPS capabilities and an alarm system to prevent babies from being taken outside the unit before they are properly discharged.

With free childbirth classes, a sleep sack, and an outstanding celebration dinner prepared by our in-house chef, we assure the birth of your child will be a first-class experience.  Your baby’s first bath is a special moment performed at your bedside, and you even get to keep that first bathtub as our gift to you.

Should your baby require extra care, our neonatal intensive care unit’s (NICU), specially trained staff is available 24 hours a day.

Pregnancy and COVID-19

Wherever you are in the pregnancy journey, our experienced specialists are with you every step of the way. At Baylor Frisco, we want you to feel safe, comfortable and supported throughout preconception, pregnancy, delivery and beyond.​

When the time comes, our labor and delivery team is ready around the clock. Whether you are a first-time mom or a delivery room veteran, we are here to ​provide you with a birth experience as individual as the new person on the way.

Having a baby is an exciting adventure. Women who are in their childbearing years or sexually active may consider seeing a doctor even before becoming pregnant. Scheduling a preconception appointment can:
  • Optimize your health in order to increase the likelihood that you will have a healthy baby.
  • Ensure continuity of care. You can meet a doctor and decide whether or not you want him or her to care for you during your pregnancy.
  • Identify any potential problems, such as infertility, that need to be addressed prior to pregnancy.
If you’re already pregnant, routine prenatal visits will help you and your baby remain healthy and the pregnancy is progressing normally.
Experienced Staff, Warm Environment
The doctors, nurse, and other specially trained staff at Baylor Scott & White are focused on you and your baby’s health throughout your pregnancy and delivery.
Our labor and delivery rooms feature soothing décor and plenty of room for members of your family. Our quality maternity and delivery services are known throughout the country.
Creating a Special Bond
We always encourage you to have a support person with you during labor and delivery.
Skin to Skin Contact/Kangaroo Care
We want your baby’s transition to the outside world to be as calm as possible. That’s why we promote skin-to-skin contact between mom and baby (also known as Kangaroo Care) starting immediately after delivery.
This approach to bonding involves holding the baby, who is naked except for a diaper and a blanket that is draped over them, on a parent’s bare chest. Research has shown the many benefits of this approach to bonding:
  • Stabilization of the baby’s heart rate
  • Regulation of baby’s breathing pattern
  • Regulation of the baby’s body temperature and much more
Our nursing staff is there to help you get started with this important bonding time.
At a parent’s request, we can provide couplet care for families after they have delivered, but our newborn nursery is available 24 hours a day. Couplet care is when mothers and newborns remain together for the entire hospital stay, rather than the baby staying in a nursery. This approach to care for mom and baby has several benefits:
  • Facilitating mother-baby bonding
  • Facilitating baby-family bonding
  • Promoting early breastfeeding success

Level III NICUs, which are prepared to provide advanced life-support services and technologies for premature and seriously ill newborns.

Our Level III NICU provides the highest level of care available for our tiniest patients. Staffed by specialized nurses, neonatal nurse practitioners, neonatologists, and many other skilled staff, the unit is designed to promote optimal developmental care for sick infants.
