He's pretty hesitant about meeting a recruiter even though he wants to join. I think he just doesn't like people trying to convince him to do things lol. I'm trying to be as supportive as possible any advise would be very helpful!
I recently found out I'm pregnant (first time mama!) and I am trying to make sense of Tricare lol.
I have Standard.
Under the "is it covered?" tab on their website I saw that they do cover midwives and birthing centers under certain conditions and I am interested in pursuing this, but I have also been told the navy hospital (Balboa) is really an amazing hospital (in fact, my husband's CO told him you aren't really in the navy til your wife has a kid there lol) but I really want a natural birth so I'm nervous to consider a hospital birth.
I'm just wondering if anyone has experiences to share about hospital vs. birth center, if the hospitals were receptive to your birth plans/no interventions/etc? (Especially if you are in San Diego- what did you do? Where did you go? How was your birth experience?)
Upset. But I know he's gotta do what he's gotta do. It just bums me out for my son, that's a long time for a baby!
