We as a chapter hope to impact the community by educating women and their families on not only the resources available to them but the options they have when it comes to having a baby. Women who are educated on their rights and are aware of the choices they have will more than likely have a better birthing experience. A network with sources providing continuity of care, connecting both Business’ and families during their PCS.
Teamwork – it is my goal to work together with all the members of the community. This includes medical professionals, holistic professionals, local nationals and families, AD, Civilians and Contractors. We are stronger when we are united. Families will benefit when we work together!
Although the military community has an impressive family support structure in place, the shear size of the community it serves and the complex issues many families face often makes it hard for families to know what services are available. It must be quick and easy for overwhelmed families to find the support they need. Most families know where to get the help they need for relocation support, legal support, and medical support. But they don't have a source of support when it comes to the emotional needs they have as a military family during the childbearing years. It is not unusual for a Mom to arrive in labor all alone at a military hospital.
