Methodist Stone Oak Hospital Captures Birth Day
Hospital Provides Personalized Biovideos

Methodist Stone Oak Hospital has a special gift for mothers.  Mothers delivering a baby at Methodist Stone Oak Hospital will have this very special moment of the birth day captured on a personalized, musical DVD. A Biovideo photographer and digital producer will work with each family recording: the arrival of the mother-to-be and family at the hospital; the presentation of the baby to the mother after delivery; and interaction of newborn with the father, siblings, grandparents and other family members. Biovideo is a complimentary service to each family and will be a standard offering with each delivery. 

The Biovideo DVD also includes an educational section to help parents with such issues as nutrition, bathing, breastfeeding and additional information on other hospital services. The DVD is presented to the family in a customized case with baby’s name when mother and infant leave the hospital. “Through Biovideo we hope to capture the special experience of childbirth for each family,” said Dean Alexander, CEO, Methodist Stone Oak Hospital. Mother’s Day was selected to introduce the Biovideo service in honor of the special bond between mothers and their children and as a family keepsake for generations to come.”

The Biovideo program, founded in Mexico almost 3 years ago, is available in Mexico City, Monterrey and Guadalajara. Methodist Stone Oak Hospital is the company’s first client in the U.S. to offer this free, innovative, multi-media education service to the new parent/patient clients
