Maternal-fetal Emergency Transport

Twenty-four hours a day, 7 days a week, The Woman's Hospital of Texas provides maternal-fetal transport for mothers with a high-risk pregnancy and babies who need our NICU. This team brings high-risk mothers, premature babies and sick newborns directly to our hospital by helicopter.

Our maternal-fetal transport team offers fast, skilled response to referring physicians and hospitals within a 150-mile radius of Woman’s Hospital of Texas. The neonatal transport team includes a neonatal nurse practioner, a neonatal transport nurse and a transport respiratory therapist.

While in route, one of our neonatologists and a maternal-fetal medicine specialist will consult with the attending physician to collaborate on care options until our team arrives and takes over your care.
