The Arkansas Department of Health provides prenatal care to an average of 5,000 women annually at many of the Local Health Units. Services are provided for little or no cost. No one will be refused services because they do not have money to pay. Clients have access to other Health Department services such as STD testing, family planning services and WIC. To locate the most convenient Local Health Unit for you, please check the listing in your area.
Prenatal Services include:
- Prenatal Services
- Postpartum Services
- Prenatal Education and Counseling
The Prenatal Program’s goals are to ensure pregnant women have early access to prenatal care, decrease pregnancy related diseases, and reduce the number of infant deaths and the number of infants born prematurely.
