My husband and I recently found out we are pregnant.
But I need advice. He is stationed out of Marine Barracks Washington DC,so my PCM is out of JBAB. We just bought a house in Woddbridge so on a good day thats a 45min drive. That just doesn't seem practical to me. I keep reading about tricare prime vs standard but I just keep getting more confused. Some people say I can get a referral for a civilian OB while on Prime but others dismiss that and say to switch to standard. I also have to go to an orientation, is this where I can discuss getting a referral. Can I get a referral to switch to a closer base like Belvoir or Quantico? Does any one have experience with JBAB, Belvoir or Quantico for prenatal and birthing? Secondly this is my first pregnancy so I know I will have a lot of questions and I want to make sure I am some where that will make me feel comfortable doing that. Are on base OB like that? I have experience with my PCM and feel like its a rush to see me, then I have seen 2 different OB and had two different experiences.
