Assistance in Proper Installation of Car Seats

BSA Health System is proud to have three nationally certified Child Passenger Safety Technicians who can assist parents in properly installing children's car seats. Dawn Bagby, RN; Kendra Smith, RNC; and Trina Reagan, RNC are certified by Safe Kids Worldwide using curriculum by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. 

Car seat installation and checks are now available at BSA Hospital by appointment only. To schedule an appointment, please call 806-212-BABY (2229). On the day of your appointment, please park under the front entrance awning and call 806-212-BABY (2229). Your technician will come outside to meet you.


At BSA you will experience single-room maternity care. This means that you will labor, give birth, recover and receive post-partum care all within the privacy of your own Birthing Suite. Each Birthing Suite comes with a queen-size bed so your birthing partner can stay in the room with you. The private bathroom in each suite has a Jacuzzi tub and shower for the mother's comfort after labor.

Cesarean (C-section) births take place in one of our surgical suites located just steps away from the Birthing Suites. BSA is the first hospital in Amarillo to offer C-section delivery for expectant moms without opioid painkillers. For an opioid-free C-section, physicians still use medication for pain management, but the side effects are less, including decreased bloating, less constipation and faster recovery time. After a C-section, patients and families are taken to one of our Birthing Suites to spend time with their new arrival and receive post-partum care.


Learning to breastfeed your newborn baby can be one of the hardest tasks you’ll face as a new mom, but our caring lactation nurses are here to help you succeed.

Our specialized team of certified lactation nurses provide assistance to new moms at BSA. Even after going home, our lactation consultants are just a phone call away on our Breastfeeding Hotline at (806) 212-5548.

Childbirth Education and Classes

As the birth of your baby gets closer, it's common to have anxiety and lots of questions. Our childbirth education classes are designed to provide you with knowledge and skills to decrease any nervousness you may have about the process of labor, breastfeeding or caring for your baby. All classes are offered free of charge.

Learn more about available classes and check out our Getting Ready for Baby Guide.


BSA is the only hospital in Amarillo with a newborn nursery. While mom and baby share the same room after delivery to help strengthen the bond between them, our nurses are happy to care for your baby in the nursery when you would like a break or want some undisturbed rest. Our nursery is conveniently located just steps down the hall.

Neonatal ICU

In the event your baby is born prematurely or needs special care, our Level III-Designated Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) is here for you and your baby. Leading the way, the BSA NICU was the second NICU in Texas and the first in the Panhandle to earn the designation as a Level III Neonatal Intensive Care service provider from the Texas Department of State Health Services.
