We are a designated a Texas Ten Step hospital, dedicated to supporting all mothers' breastfeeding needs to ensure the best outcomes once at home. The lactation program is led by board certified lactation consultants who offer monthly prenatal breastfeeding courses and provide assistance post-partum.

Nurse Family Partnership

Nurse Family Partnership

The Nurse Family Partnership at DHR Health Women's Hospital helps transform the lives of mothers and their children. A nurse’s expertise helps guide first-time mothers through the emotional, social and physical challenges they face as they prepare for a healthy birth. Prenatal support is the starting point, but the nurse continues to serve her client after she delivers her child, teaching parenting and life skills that foster positive growth for both mother and child. Nurse-Family Partnership focuses on low-income, first-time mothers. Women voluntarily enroll as early as possible with nurse home visits, ideally beginning by the 16th week of pregnancy. Each mother served is partnered with a registered nurse early in her pregnancy and receives ongoing nurse home visits that continue through her child’s second birthday.

Postpartum Depression

Postpartum Depression

Did you know that postpartum mood and anxiety disorders affect 1 out of 7 women? Postpartum depression is very common, and can be challenging for many new mothers. You don’t have to go through this alone. Get support from a licensed professional counselor at the DHR Health Counseling and Psychiatry Center by calling (956) 961-4691.

Texas Ten Step Certification

Texas Ten Step Certification

We have taken a giant step towards improving the health of newborns and infants by earning the Texas Ten Step Program facility designation from the Texas Department of State Health Services. As the first hospital in the Rio Grande Valley to receive Texas Ten Step Program designation, we encourage breastfeeding as the preferred method of feeding for newborns and infants. We also provide breastfeeding employees with a clean, private room for pumping, accessories needed for cleaning pumps and refrigerated storage.
