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. Our doctors also manage high-risk pregnancies in close collaboration with our maternal-fetal medicine specialists.
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.
Deluxe Birthing Suites
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).
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.
