Pregnancy in the Military

Pregnancy can be a blessing for those who don't experience morning sickness, back aches and swollen ankles, but for others it can be a nightmare experiencing these symptoms with full force. For those in the military there are many opportunities to understand pregnancy a bit better as well as having a support system for any concerns or questions that may arise. On Maxwell AFB, pregnant women both active duty and dependent can take advantage of the New Parent Support Program, which provides new parents with classes, home visits and 24-hour access to a nurse.
