About our Neonatal Intensive Care Unit

Our neonatal critical care services at Children’s Memorial Hermann Hospital, located in the Texas Medical Center, include a 118 bed Level IV Neonatal Intensive Care Unit. While we use high-tech therapies and advanced equipment, we never lose sight of the value of human touch to the infants in our care.

Kangaroo Care

Kangaroo care – also known as skin-to-skin contact -- is a technique in which a baby is placed in direct contact with a parent’s bare chest where he or she can cuddle, be rocked and hear the comforting sounds of the parent’s voice and heartbeat. Premature babies and full term newborns greatly benefit from kangaroo care because it gives the baby an immediate sense of safety, security and warmth, which encourages bonding.

Breastfeeding Support

Research shows that breastfeeding benefits both babies and their moms. It reduces your child’s risk for developing many types of infections and helps you recover from the stress of pregnancy, labor and delivery. Our in-house lactation consultants are available to offer advice and instruction before delivery and during your hospital stay.
