COVID-19 and pregnancy - An update for our patients

Labor and delivery at Methodist Hospital Stone Oak
There is no more joyful time than when you are expecting. At Methodist Hospital Stone Oak, our labor and delivery team’s primary focus is to provide exceptional, personalized and family-centered care that exceeds the needs and expectations of mothers-to-be. The hospital offers the trusted choice of quality Methodist Women’s Health services in North Central San Antonio. Specializing in prenatal and postpartum care as well as high-risk pregnancy, our 15-bed birthing center provides unrivaled services designed to enhance this miraculous experience.
We also believe in couplet care. This means, we minimize mother-baby separation. Your baby stays in your hospital room, even at night. This care facilitates family bonding, supports successful breastfeeding and creates a special experience for our mothers from childbirth throughout the inpatient stay.
