Hospital Care:

The majority of mothers who choose Plano Birthplace labor and birth successfully at the birth center. However, from time-to-time, situations arise during pregnancy, and/or labor that are best handled in a hospital environment. Our primary goal at Plano Birthplace is to ensure we keep mom and baby safe. Fortunately the midwives at Plano Birthplace can provide care for our moms in the birth center setting as well as in the hospital setting.

Every woman deserves the midwifery model of care regardless of where they desire to give birth. Whether giving birth at the birth center or hospital Jeannine provides compassionate evidence-based care.

In the event you need hospital care during your pregnancy, labor or postpartum period, your Midwife maintains privileges at Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital of Dallas. Having privileges at the hospital enables your midwife to keep you and your baby safe by taking care of you in the hospital setting. Clients at Plano Birthplace can rest assured they will have continuity of midwifery care no matter where the setting. Our Plano Birthplace clients that transfer to Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital of Dallas will continue to be supported and cared for by their trusted Certified Nurse Midwife with the added bonus of our trusted Collaborative physician(s) managing your care in the hospital setting.
