At North Arkansas Regional Medical Center, we understand that pregnancy is a special time in a woman's life. We are here to ensure you have a safe and comfortable delivery. Our labor and delivery services are designed to provide you with a personalized experience while ensuring the highest quality medical care for you and your baby.

We offer the best in family-centered maternity care. We foster this by focusing on the physical, social, and emotional needs of you and your family. This means personal birth choices and an environment where bonding with your baby is easily facilitated, providing peace of mind during one of life’s most important times.

One way we accomplish this is through our contemporary labor, delivery, recovery, and postpartum rooms that allow families to stay in one room until after the delivery. Each one of our fully-decorated suites features an electronically-controlled birthing bed, which provides varying degrees of back support and body positions throughout delivery.

NARMC is one of only 33 hospitals in the state that continues to deliver babies. We recently received our Baby-Friendly re-designation and are the only facility within 50 miles to have this designation. This indicates that we are following the latest recommendations set forth by the WHO, CDC, and American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) for infant birthing and feeding practices. Additionally, this designation upholds policies and teachings on enhanced mother-baby bonding and enables families to make informed decisions about infant feeding, ensuring a baby's nutritional needs are adequately met.

We pride ourselves in offering birthing practices that are baby and family oriented. We do this to make the transition to life outside the womb as smooth as possible for our babies and give parents the tools and resources needed to give their babies the best start in life. Everything you and your doctor need to deliver a healthy, happy baby is waiting for you at North Arkansas Regional Medical Center.

Labor Process

While you are in labor, our nurses will constantly interact with you and your family, providing education and support throughout the labor and delivery process. Walking and movement are encouraged to help with pain management. Epidural anesthesia and pain medication are available for use during labor and delivery.

At North Arkansas Regional Medical Center, we are committed to providing you with the highest quality care and support during your pregnancy and childbirth journey. We look forward to being a part of this special time in your life and helping you welcome your new bundle of joy into the world.
