Healthy Families is proud to provide a reliable resource for pregnant women and families in Arkansas to learn about the health, safety and well-being of children. Now the program offers families two FREE resources: Happy Birthday Baby Book One: prenatal – age 1; and Happy Birthday Baby Book Two: newborn – age 5 . The books are FREE! You can read them online or order copies and have them sent to your home.
To enroll in the ARKids First program, you must choose a primary care doctor--a ConnectCare doctor. The ARKids First application asks you to name your top three choices to be your child's doctor. If none of your choices is available, your local DHS office will contact you. For a list of participating ConnectCare doctors, call 1-800-275-1131.
