Save Time When Your Baby Arrives
Doing these things will help the arrival of your child feel seamless.
Contact your Insurance Company
Many insurance companies require notification before you go to to the hospital. Call your insurance company to let them know your due date, and follow any notification requirements they have. Doing this early helps you to take care of any financial matters before your big day.
Map Your Route
The packet that Admissions sends you will include maps of the hospital and the nearest freeways. Labor and Delivery is located on the 5th floor of the hospital.
How to get to UAMS Health
Where to go when you arrive
- You have more than one person assessing your situation and providing the best care for you.
- You do not have to wait for your physician to come in for delivery, because there are always 3 to 4 obstetricians in the hospital at all times.
- You do not have to wait for an OR team to be called in should you need a cesarean section. In case of emergency, time is of the essence and could mean a difference in outcomes for both you and your baby.
- There are anesthesiologists on the labor and delivery floor at all times ready to insert an epidural or other appropriate means of anesthesia for you.
- You do not have to find a pediatrician to come to the hospital and care for you baby. In-house pediatricians and neonatologists are ready 24/7 to care for your newborn in the case of any emergency situation.
