Labor and Delivery

Our experienced obgyns are highly trained in labor and delivery

Our Round Rock obgyns have the experience and training to help women with routine or high risk pregnancies through labor and delivery. From preconception planning to postpartum care, our physicians provide compassionate and attentive care.

Patients go through labor and delivery at Seton Medical Center Williamson

When the big moment arrives, our patients go to Seton Medical Center Williamson for labor and delivery. This medical center offers state-of-the-art facilities for both mothers and babies. Our Round Rock obgyns partner with experienced neonatologists and pediatricians on staff to ensure that each baby’s needs are met.

During labor and delivery, women benefit from a highly qualified nursing staff. Seton Medical Center Williamson’s nurses average more than 15 years of experience in women’s health.

After the baby is born, new mothers will appreciate these services:

  • A state-of-the-art infant security system
  • Certified educators to teach infant massage
  • Breastfeeding support from certified lactation consultants

A birth plan helps patients plan their labor experience

Our Round Rock obgyns, Beth Thai MD, Rebecca Teng MD and Brenda Chao MD, encourage women to create a birth plan that addresses the following points:

  • Pain relief
  • Preferred position(s) during labor
  • Who will be in the labor and delivery room
  • Who should cut the umbilical cord
  • Circumcision for male infants

Many patients take advantage of childbirth and childcare classes before giving birth, as well as take a tour of the medical facility.

Once labor begins, your nurse monitors contractions, the mother’s vital signs and the baby’s heart rate to keep the physician fully informed. Our Round Rock obgyns and the staff at Seton are always prepared for any complications that arise during labor and delivery.

What to expect after delivery

After the baby arrives, postpartum care at the hospital begins. Medical center staff move patients from the labor and delivery room into a postpartum room, where they usually remain for one or two hours. After that, new moms move to the mother/baby unit to rest with their baby.

After the mother and her baby leave the hospital, our Round Rock obgyns provide postpartum follow-up care. At the postpartum follow-up visit, our physicians perform a physical and pelvic exam and talk to patients about any physical or mental issues that need to be addressed.

From labor and delivery to postpartum care, our Round Rock obgyns and the experienced staff at Seton Medical Center Williamson are dedicated to providing a wonderful birth experience. Women who are pregnant or planning to become pregnant should contact us for an appointment.
