UNIVERSITY WOMEN'S HEALTH CENTER
The University Womenís Health Center is an off-campus private, faculty practice which offers a full range of womenís services including: obstetrics (including certified nurse midwives); gynecology; prenatal diagnostic testing; and the most advanced reproductive technologies related to infertility, in the state. The Center is supported by a multi-disciplinary team of health providers that are concerned with the many challenges confronting women. We encourage women to become actively involved in their healthcare and support them with education and instruction during each visit.
WOMEN'S HEALTH ANTEPARTAL UNIT
Most women have few problems with pregnancy. They are able to work and care for their family until the time when the baby is born. Women who do need inpatient medical care before their baby is born are admitted to the "A" wing on the fifth floor.
POSTPARTUM / NORMAL NEWBORN
After you and your baby have been observed in labor and delivery, you will both be admitted to the "C" wing on the fifth floor. One nurse will care for both you and your baby. This "couplet care" allows you and your baby to get to know each other and for you and your family to care for the baby in a supported environment. Visiting hours are 10:30 a.m. to 8:30 p.m. We understand that friends and family will want to visit, but we ask your help to limit your visitors to two at a time. Siblings are allowed to visit but need to obtain visitor passes from the secretary in order to stay in your room. For protection of your baby, and other newborns, no one with a cold, fever, or virus will be allowed to visit. All visitors must leave by 8:30 p.m. unless you have a private room. If you want someone to stay in your room overnight,; you will need to ask for a private room before leaving Labor and Delivery. A cash deposit must be paid at the time you sign up for a private room.
Some babies cannot be admitted to the motherís room because they need special medical care in the nursery. If your baby is placed in the Intermediate Level Nursery (IL2) or the Intensive Care Nursery (ICN), you will be allowed to visit as soon as you are able. Only parents and grandparents are allowed to visit babies in these special nurseries.
OBSTETRICS AND REPRODUCTIVE GENETICS TELEMEDICINE CLINIC
To improve access to high-risk obstetric and prenatal diagnosis services for patients around the state, a weekly High Risk Obstetrics Telemedicine Clinic over interactive video clinic was established. If you are referred to the High-Risk Obstetrics or Prenatal Diagnosis Clinics in Little Rock , but are unable to travel there, we may be able to see you over interactive video. This allows you to see and hear the specialists at UAMS while we can see and hear you. The system is a closed circuit, so your session is private to insure confidentiality. More that 40 rural hospitals and clinics in Arkansas have interactive video. Currently, four of those are able to perform ultrasounds over interactive video. Telemedicine is used to provide outpatient care (initial consultation, follow-up, evaluation of ultrasounds performed at site, genetic evaluation and follow-up, emergency consults for abnormal results) and emergency inpatient Maternal-Fetal Medicine care. Benefits to patients include access to experts, reduced travel, more convenient for participation of partner, and less time off work. If you have transportation problems and need to be seen for high-risk obstetrics consults or genetic counseling, ask your physician or call our office at 1-800-358-7229 for a telemedicine clinic near you.
