VA holding baby shower for enrolled female veterans

Posted: Updated:
COLUMBUS, Ga. -

Central Alabama Veterans Health Care System (CAVHCS) Women Veterans Program will host a "Baby Shower" event for enrolled female maternity Veterans and female Veterans of childbearing age on Friday October 4, 2013 from 1:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m. at CAVHCS Community Based Outpatient Clinic, 1310 13th Avenue, Columbus, Georgia, 31906.

 During the "Baby Shower" assessment data will be obtained to determine the female veterans' satisfaction with CAVHCS maternity care processes and community obstetrical care. Women Veterans will receive information related to CAVHCS services including, but not limited to Comprehensive Primary Care, Mental Health, Health Promotion and Disease Prevention, Minority Veterans Services, Suicide Prevention, Rehabilitative Medicine, OEF/OIF/OND Seamless Transition Program, Montgomery Vet Center, and others services.    The Baby Shower Event includes community resources such as the Columbus Vet Center, the Georgia Department of Public Health & Georgia Department of Labor.

 National statistical data indicates that women are the fastest growing group within the veteran population and the number of Women Veterans is expected to increase dramatically in the next 10  years. The changing faces of women veterans warrant specialty care by the Veterans Administration (VA) to meet their specific health care needs by working to provide a coordinated approach to maternity services while ensuring accessible and continued quality care.
