JOINT BASE SAN ANTONIO-FORT SAM HOUSTON, Texas –
The San Antonio Market offers a group obstetric model for pregnant women at Brooke Army Medical Center.
Once a woman finds out she is pregnant, she has the option to choose traditional individual prenatal care or join a pregnancy group for prenatal care.
The group, led by a nurse midwife or nurse practitioner, consists of up to 12 expectant mothers who are around the same gestational period in their pregnancy. If a patient chooses the group OB option, they receive a welcome letter with all the scheduled dates for the group sessions. Each session is a two-hour appointment.
