Labor and Delivery

Pregnancy and Childbirth

From preconception to pregnancy to life with your baby, we support you through each stage of your journey. Whether you go through pregnancy without any difficulty or you experience complications, we’re equipped to care for both you and your child through advanced services, including maternal-fetal medicine for high-risk pregnancies and one of the state’s leading NICUs at Baptist Health Medical Center-Little Rock. Some of our labor and delivery hospitals even offer a range of amenities to help you feel at home during your stay at Baptist Health, from deluxe maternity suites to labor pain-easing Jacuzzi tubs.

At Baptist Health, we understand that awaiting a child is one of the most exciting and rewarding events in a woman’s life. That is why our goal is to guide you through a safe pregnancy while making your birth experience joyous and distinctively yours. With our experienced medical staff of board-certified physicians and registered nurses, we provide expert care for both general and high-risk pregnancies. From family planning to breastfeeding support, our focus is you — and your healthy baby.

What Stage Are You?

You place a staggering amount of trust in the hospital that delivers your baby, and with our advanced services, exceptional amenities and expert providers, we’re more than equipped to make you feel confident in your decision to choose Baptist Health for your labor and delivery and beyond. 

Why Choose Us?

Baptist Health delivery hospitals offer a family-friendly environment with deluxe suites for labor and delivery. These suites are furnished with a variety of quality amenities to create a comfortable birthing experience for both mom and baby.

Our maternity services focus on providing the utmost comfort and care for parents and newborns. Our highly-skilled physicians provide the latest in obstetrical care and work closely with the hospital’s anesthesiologists to provide expectant mothers with the most appropriate pain management options. At our Little Rock location, we offer one of the state’s most advanced Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) that allows parents to check in on their child’s care 24/7.

Through our Baby-Friendly Designated Hospital initiative, we support new mothers by giving them the information, confidence and skills necessary to successfully breastfeed their babies. In cases where our patients have a medical indication or have made an informed decision to use formula, we offer information on the safe preparation and feeding of formula.

At Baptist Health, we offer a variety of resources for expectant and new parents alike. Through educational guides, birthing and parenting classes, hospital tours and maternity literature available through our BHealthy Blog, our patients are able to fully prepare themselves for the arrival of their new family member.
