Preparing for Delivery
The Conway Regional Obstetrical Unit provides 16 LDRP (labor, delivery, recovery, and postpartum) suites where new mothers and well newborns are cared for from admission until discharge. Newborns are monitored while in the hospital by a complex infant security system.
You can save time and get your information into the system before you come to the hospital to have your baby by pre-registering at 30 weeks before your expected due date for delivery.
Newborn Intensive Care Nursery (NICU)
A six-bed Level II NICU provides care for sick or premature newborns. New parents have access to a rooming-in room near the NICU, in which to care for their newborns in preparation for discharge.
Your newborn will benefit from our groundbreaking nursery alliance with Arkansas Children’s Hospital. The Nursery Alliance puts into place coordination of care between neonatologists at ACH’s Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) and physicians in Conway Regional’s NICU and newborn nursery to help further improve the quality of newborn care.
During your stay, the nurses will make arrangements for your baby's first photo. Parents will have the option to purchase photos as well as make them available online for family and friends to see. Conway Regional partner's with Our365 to provide a web nursery where newborn's photos can be viewed with parental permission.
