Liaisons assist expecting parents
The patient liaisons assigned to U.S. Army Health Clinic Stuttgart help expecting parents prepare for the birth of their child in Germany.
They provide information on what personal items to bring to the hospital during pregnancy, cultural differences, and an overview of the German administrative process during pregnancy classes offered through the Stuttgart Wellness Center.
They also offer a monthly labor and delivery tour. Patient liaisons can also assist with admissions and help to complete paperwork for a child’s birth certificate.
