Ramstein Family Advocacy
The New Parent Support Program is a wonderful program that both the Air Force and Army offer right here in the KMC.
Both programs have the same mission of providing resources, referrals, home-visits and educational support to families.
The Army and Air Force are teaming up to offer a joint Expectant Parent Orientation beginning May 21. The orientation will be held from 8 to 11 a.m. every third Tuesday of the month at the Landstuhl Regional Medical Center Chapel.
There will be several key topics discussed such as prenatal information, Tricare, birth registration, passport information, and information about community resources. Participants will receive free gifts.
This program is designed to support first time parents by providing subject matter experts in child development, prenatal concerns, breast-feeding, and by offering speakers that can answer a variety of practical questions for parents.
