Maternity Services

Working in coordination with Alabama Medicaid, the Alabama Coordinated Health Network, or ACHN, is designed to ensure that every pregnant woman has access to medical care, with the goal of lowering Alabama's infant mortality rate and improving maternal and infant health.

Maternity Program Recipients

If you think you might be pregnant, please contact the ACHN in your region. ACHN nurses and social workers will help you make better choices in order to have better health outcomes for you and your baby.
