    I had my best of three deliveries at Portsmouth Naval hospital! (the other two were at civilian hospitals)
    Congratulations!

    I have heard that if you are on Prime, you'll deliver at Portsmouth. Period. But they have a really wide variety of options-- you can deliver on a bed, in a hospital gown and with an epidural OR you can move around, use a birthing ball/shower, be in your own clothes and receive no medication. So you can pretty much have the birth you want there, unless you want a home birth or a water birth (which I did initially, so I adapted).

    I'm delivering at Langley AFB. However my friend just delivered at Portsmouth. It depends I guess? Both my friend and I are tricare prime. Congrats!
