Access To Care

New OB patients, excluding active duty service members, must have a referral from a primary care provider. The referral should reference a positive quantitative pregnancy test, number of weeks of gestation at time of referral, and any known OB risk factors prior to being scheduled a new OB orientation appointment.

Labor and Delivery Unit

Building “A,” 2nd Floor
270-798-8090

Visiting Hours: 24/7 - based on patient preference and condition.

The Labor, Delivery and Recovery team is committed to providing comprehensive family-centered care to all active duty Soldiers and their dependents. The team’s goal is to partner with the patient and family to ensure a safe delivery in the manner most suitable to the needs of the patient and baby. For the safety of the patient, it is recommended that only three to four guests be in the room at one time during labor. During the actual delivery, it is recommended only two guests be present. During a C-section only one guest may be present. All other guests are welcome to remain in the waiting area. Siblings under 12 years old must be accompanied by an adult. Visitors who are not siblings and are under 12 years old are not allowed on the Labor and Delivery Unit. For the safety of the baby, guests with cold or flu-like symptoms are encouraged not to visit the newborns. The Labor, Delivery and Recovery Unit is open 24/7. In addition, telephone consultation or triage is available on Labor and Delivery. Any emergent issues less than 20 weeks pregnant will be seen in the Emergency Center. For nonemergent issues, 20 weeks and above, Monday through Friday during normal business hours, please call the OB clinic at 270-798-8151. For any emergent issues, 20 weeks and above during weekends and after hours, please call or go to Labor and Delivery triage.

Lactation Services

270-798-8151, Option 1

Hours: 7:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday.

Reasons to see a consultant before you deliver: You want to learn as much as you can about breastfeeding; if you had breastfeeding or lactation difficulty in the past; expecting more than one baby or a baby who may be sick or early; you have a history of breast surgery and wonder if it will affect your breastfeeding; you think your breasts or nipples look odd to you or are very different from each other; or you worry that something about your health might make it hard to breastfeed.

Reasons to see a lactation consultant after you deliver: If you are concerned about your baby’s weight; you have questions and concerns about how your infant is acting during or after feeding; you feel you may have too much or too little milk; your provider or your baby’s provider sends you for help or you or your baby is hospitalized during the time you are a nursing couple.

A lactation consultant can help you identify the cause of a problem affecting breastfeeding for milk production; make suggestions about how to correct a problem; work with you to decide on a plan of care; suggest supplies or tools you can use to improve your breastfeeding experience (some supplies are provided during consultations if the lactation consultant confirms there is a need); provide you with written education and/or instructions; share information about other breastfeeding support and resources in the community; and provide follow-up consultations as needed.

BREASTFEEDING CLASSES AND PEER SUPPORT AT BACH

Third Trimester Breastfeeding Class: Covers position and latch techniques, how to assess for milk transfer from mother to infant, how human milk production occurs and reviews common breastfeeding concerns.

The MOM and ME Group: A place and time breastfeeding mothers can gather together with their breastfeeding infant and develop relationships with other breastfeeding mothers in the community. This is a place to share information and experiences with other mothers. An International Board Certified Lactation Consultant will be present during this group session to offer support, address questions and recommend follow-up if needed. An infant scale is available for use by the mothers.

PUMP PROGRAMS

TRICARE covers breast pumps and breast pump supplies at no cost for new mothers, including mothers who adopt an infant and plan to breastfeed.

You must have a prescription from a TRICARE-authorized physician, physician assistant, nurse practitioner, or nurse midwife. The prescription will state which type of breast pump you need:

  • Hospital-grade breast pump
  • Manual breast pump
  • Standard electric breast pump

If you paid out-of-pocket, you can send a claim for reimbursement with a copy of your prescription and itemized receipt.

Mother-Baby Unit

Building “A,” 2nd Floor
270-798-8090

Quiet Hours are from 10 p.m. to 7 a.m. to allow newly postpartum patients adequate quiet for recuperation.

The Mother-Baby Unit is located near the Labor, Delivery and Recovery Unit to provide patient and family-centered maternity and newborn care with minimum disruption and separation following birth. The unit has a Level I Special Care Nursery to provide advanced care for infants requiring further post-delivery transition needs. Healthy infants who do not require advanced care will share their mothers’ room during their post-partum period. The mother and family are welcome to invite adults and siblings to the room. Siblings under 12 years old must be accompanied by an adult other than the patient’s primary support person. For the safety of the baby, guests with cold or flu-like symptoms are encouraged not to visit the newborns. It is recommended that no one other than the deemed support person stay overnight due to space limitations and the comfort of other patients receiving care.
