Spreading the importance of folic acid and its role in significantly reducing the risk of a child developing a neural tube defect in the womb remains our primary objective. But we believe in promoting anything and everything that will help an expectant mother get through a full-term pregnancy and give birth to a healthy baby.
We’ve put together a list of resources from national and Arkansas specific non-profits.
The Arkansas Pregnancy Resource Center — based out of Little Rock — is a non-profit organization that provides all services free of charge. Services include pregnancy testing, STI testing, online parenting classes, options consultation, and more.
There are other pregnancy resource centers across the state. You can find the one closest to you here.
The March of Dimes is a non-profit organization that fights for healthy mothers and babies. The nationwide group offers local resources, including in Arkansas. You can find those at https://www.marchofdimes.org/local/in-your-area.aspx or at their local office in Gainesville, AR at 352-378-9522.
BirthMother Assistance offers a long list of Arkansas specific resources for expectant mothers, those looking to become pregnant, and those looking into adoption.
Of course, if you have any questions about folic acid, neural tube defects, or anything else pregnancy related, please feel free to contact us!
