The Woman's Hospital of Texas Pediatric ER


The Woman's Hospital of Texas offers the most comprehensive care in the Houston region for high-risk pregnancies. Called the Antepartum Unit (APU), this 48-bed unit provides mothers on bed rest a second home complete with the additional support they and their vulnerable babies require.

We care for women with high-risk pregnancy conditions such as:

  • Multiple babies
  • Pre-term labor
  • Pregnancy-induced hypertension (preeclampsia)
  • Chronic hypertension (high-blood pressure)
  • Diabetes
  • Premature rupture of membranes
  • Incompetent or weakened cervix
  • Bleeding disorders, including placenta previa and abruptio placentae
  • Asthma
  • Post-surgery complications
  • Placenta Accreta

Patients can begin their stay as early as 9-10 weeks. Most antepartum patients arrive between 30-32 weeks, and a 3-4 week stay is typical. However, some mothers with uncontrolled diabetes or high blood pressure may begin their stay as early as 10-12 weeks into the pregnancy. Whatever your physician recommends, The Woman’s Hospital of Texas can help.
