Maternal Child Inpatient Unit

Having a baby is a momentous event, and we are honored you’ve chosen Eglin AFB Labor and Delivery for the birth of your child! The Maternal Child Care Inpatient Flight (Labor and Delivery) provides medical care for obstetrical patients and neonates. We support active duty service members, dependents, veteran beneficiaries, and retirees. The Labor and Delivery Unit was professionally redesigned in 2020 to create an inviting and pleasant atmosphere where patient safety and satisfaction are of utmost importance. The unit has nine private birthing suites, three outpatient triage rooms, two operating rooms, and a three-bed neonatal treatment room. Our staff has the capability to treat patients who are over 20 weeks of gestation; any patient below that benchmark will be directed to the Emergency Room. We have a friendly staff of physicians, nurses, technicians, and two lactation consultants who are committed to providing evidence based and state-of-the art medical care. A multidisciplinary partnership between the Medical Group and outside health care facilities allows for the seamless transfer of high-risk, preterm, and neonatal patients who require a higher level of care.
