Baptist Health Women's Center-Conway
A Promise to Our Patients
At Baptist Health Women’s Center, we never forget that every patient is somebody’s mother, daughter, sister, wife, grandmother or aunt. Every woman is special, and every woman deserves special care. Baptist Health has been bringing babies into the world for nearly 100 years — long enough to have a deep understanding of the special needs of women and children. Each new life we touch reaffirms our commitment to provide all Arkansans with patient-centered healthcare in an environment of Christian compassion and personal concern. As healthcare breakthroughs are made, we continue to bring the most advanced technology to our patients.
The experience of a lifetime
At Baptist Health, we believe having a baby is a profound experience. It’s personal... emotional... memorable... and undoubtedly the experience of a lifetime. Our team of physicians, nurses, and support staff provide all the support you need to make your baby’s birth a beautiful, comfortable experience.
Our Women’s Center
Baptist Health Women’s Center-Conway was designed to create an amazing experience for mom and baby. Our facility delivers the comfort, security and care you need. Features include hospitalists on site 24 hours a day, telemedicine, an infant security system and the latest technology and comfortable furnishings.
Specialized Pain Management
For many mothers, pain management is among the most important childbirth considerations. At Baptist Health, we offer 24-hour anesthesia capabilities, enabling us to respond quickly and efficiently to your needs, no matter what the time of day. Our complete spectrum of pain management services includes options such as intravenous medication, epidural anesthesia, and a popular method known as the epidural pump. We also provide instruction and support for those who prefer to give birth without medication.
Medical and Nursing Staff
Our Medical Staff
Qualified and Compassionate
One of the most important aspects of your hospital experience is the quality of care you receive from your attending physician. The Baptist Health Women’s Center-Conway medical staff has a level of experience and skill you can trust — and a compassionate approach you’ll appreciate.
Teamwork You Can Trust
Our medical staff members have an especially long tenure, which has allowed them to develop a special working relationship with the nursing staff. The level of mutual respect and trust they share doesn’t develop overnight — it takes years. It’s part of what makes Baptist Health such a natural choice for the birth of your child. And it’s a difference you can feel.
Our Nursing Staff
Beside You, to Guide You
You can take comfort in knowing that a Baptist Health nurse will be a constant companion throughout your birthing process. There will always be someone beside you — someone with experience, and someone you know and trust — to answer questions and offer support.
Our nurses have taken part in every type of birth situation and are skilled at handling even the most critical developments. They have credentials with numerous national certification programs such as Fetal Monitoring, Newborn Resuscitation, Lactation Consultation, Childbirth Education and Neonatal High-Risk Nursing.
Caring For the Whole Family
At Baptist Health, your nurse will care for you as well as your baby. We strive to provide care that is responsive to your family’s special requirements and circumstances. Your education and preparation for life at home with your new baby is important to us, and will be a priority throughout your stay.
Our nurses, through a spirit of teamwork, individual commitment and ongoing education, have created a clinical team beyond comparison.
Education and Support
Learning About Your New Life
A new baby will change every facet of your life, from the way your body functions to the schedule you keep. Baptist Health is here to help you learn all you can about a healthy pregnancy for you — and a happy life for your new baby. We offer more scheduled childbirth classes than any other hospital in central Arkansas. Our instructors have special training in all areas of childbirth and make the more complicated scientific aspects of maternity care simple to understand. They teach childbirth as wellness — not illness — and help foster a positive, uplifting attitude.
For the months leading up to birth we offer Prepared Childbirth class, which covers topics such as nutrition, exercise, relaxation and anesthesia. We also offer classes on all the other topics new parents should know, such as Infant/ Child CPR with instruction on home safety, Newborn Care, Sibling Classes and Breastfeeding classes.
You’ll probably have even more questions after your baby is born. Our staff is always available to answer questions throughout your hospital stay.
Finding breast cancer early is the main goal of routine breast care. That's why it's so important to follow a plan for preventive care including a clinical breast exam and mammogram.
Clinical breast exam
Your routine physical exam might include a clinical breast exam (CBE) by a healthcare provider or nurse trained to check breast problems. Talk with your healthcare provider to decide if you should have a CBE.
A mammogram is a low-dose X-ray of your breasts. A mammogram can find cancer or other problems early, before a lump can be felt. It can also help diagnose other breast problems.
Talk with your healthcare provider about when to start getting mammograms and how often to have them.
To schedule a mammogram at Baptist Health Women's Center call 501-585-2200.
