In preparation of the arrival of your baby, there are several resources in the area. St. Bernard’s Medical Center offers Childbirth Classes as well as a Breastfeeding Resource Center. They also have a new Neonatal Intensive Care Unit.  You will need to have a properly installed child safety seat for your automobile before leaving the hospital with your newborn. Arkansas State Police has prepared this helpful brochure on car seat safety.

The Children’s Clinic’s physicians will see your newborn after discharge from the hospital with your hospital pediatrician recommending how quickly you should be seen in clinic.

Following your discharge home, you will need to bring your newborn in for wellness visits and immunizations.

In the case of an emergency, we have after-hours calls answered by our answering service and forwarded to a pediatric RN at Arkansas Children’s Hospital. If our physician is needed, they will contact them. Please do not hesitate to call our offices at 870-935-6012.

Please refer to your Parent’s Medical Handbook provided by SHARP, inc or the resource section of this website for general information.
