Having Your Baby at Mansfield MethodistMethodist Mansfield Medical Center is a great place to have your baby! Dr. Daum, M.D. delivered the first baby at  Methodist Mansfield Medical Center on December 26th, 2006. Since that day the hospital has grown, but retains the small hospital feeling that many women enjoy. The NICU is now considered a level III A nursery, which allows for care of babies as early as 28 to 30 weeks.  

The Neonatologists are affiliated with Cook Children's Medical Center in Fort Worth, and neonatal specialists are present in the hospital 24 hours a day to care for your baby's needs. Anesthesia services are state of the art, and likewise are available 24 hours a day. 

We are presently delivering about one hundred and fifty babies per month, with expansion of labor and delivery from 7 to 14 labor rooms completed last year.  The labor and delivery is an LDR facility where you labor , deliver, and recover in the same labor room. The hospital has a great nursing staff, many of whom Dr. Daum, M.D. has known for years before the opening of the Mansfield hospital.

The post-partum unit has a high risk pregnancy room wired for fetal monitoring in labor and delivery, with plans for expansion to 4 monitored  rooms set aside for high risk mothers who require hospitalization during pregnancy. Wireless internet and flat screen TV's are examples of the modern nature of the hospital.

Our services are patient satisfaction driven, and there are smiles all around. Security for your baby is paramount, and all babies are monitored with security sensors attached to the umbilical cord, placed on the baby in the delivery room. If a baby with a sensor attached approaches an exit door or elevator alarms sound and the unit goes on lockdown security. 

Breastfeeding is encouraged and supported with full time certified lactation consultants to help you get started the right way, and with continued support by phone after discharge.
