Also called: Pregnancy Care
In a continuation of our tradition of serving the health care needs of Arkansans, our general obstetrics (OB) program is a cornerstone of UAMS’ health care offerings for women. UAMS Health provides total pregnancy care for you and your baby.
The large team of obstetrics doctors at UAMS provides comprehensive pregnancy care, including the evaluation and treatment of all disorders of the female reproductive system.
High Risk Pregnancy Care
UAMS is home to Central Arkansas’ only maternal-fetal medicine specialists who provide high-risk pregnancy care. In 2020, UAMS Medical Center was recognized as a Center of Excellence for Placenta Accreta, a childbirth complication.
Deluxe Birthing Suites
Our labor and delivery unit provides excellent care with top doctors present 24 hours a day to manage any obstetrical emergency. We also have a midwife service.
We wish to provide you with a nurturing environment to have your baby. That’s why our hospital dedicates an entire floor to labor and delivery. Every suite is private and comes with deluxe accommodations, including a recliner, television and private shower. If your baby has any special needs, your baby will be treated using the latest technology and equipment in our Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU).
Center of Excellence for Obstetric Anesthesia
In 2020, the Division of Obstetric Anesthesia at UAMS was designated a Center of Excellence by the Society for Obstetric Anesthesia and Perinatology (SOAP). UAMS is the only center in Arkansas with the designation, and employs the only fellowship-trained obstetric anesthesiologists in the state. For patients, this means that each OB delivery or procedure receives the highest standards of anesthesia care from the most experienced anesthesiologists in the state.
Our patient education specialists offer many classes to help you learn about preparing for birth and breastfeeding. If you already have a child or children, we can help prepare your family with our sibling class. And our classes extend beyond the birth of your baby to include classes on infant and child care.
