The Birmingham VA Health Care System Women’s Health Program is hosting a drive thru Mommy and Me shared medical appointment for pregnant Veterans. The shared medical appointment, or “baby shower,” is a unique opportunity for maternity Veterans to receive advice from multiple health providers while being “showered” with baby gifts.
 
Educational topics will include nutrition, breast feeding, safe sleeping, medications and recognition of the warning signs of pregnancy and postpartum complications. Gifts and refreshments provided were donated by Veteran Organizations and other community organizations. This invitation only event is open to women Veterans who are pregnant or just delivered.
