Women’s Health and Pregnancy
Women's Health refers to comprehensive women’s health care as well as health issues that are unique to women, including:
- Conditions of the Female Organs
Be sure to get early and regular prenatal care to ensure you have a healthy pregnancy. You should also get recommended breast cancer, cervical cancer, and bone density screenings.
Our goal is to ensure the health and readiness of all women at every stage of life.
Women’s Health Services
Naval Medical Center Portsmouth (NMCP) and two branch clinics (Sewell’s Point and Dam Neck) provide gynecological and obstetrical care to active duty service members and TRICARE Prime beneficiaries.
In addition to OB/GYN services, NMCP also offers sub-specialty services, including:
All of our facilities are designed to meet the healthcare needs of women and their families and use the latest guidelines from the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG) to guide our standards of care.

Think you’re pregnant?
Congratulations! NMCP is committed to providing you and your family with emotional and educational support as you move along your pregnancy journey.
Whether or not this is your first baby, each pregnancy and labor can bring its own set of joys and challenges. Our clinics are staffed with registered nurses, OB/GYN doctors, Certified Nurse Midwives (CNM), and Women’s Health Nurse Practitioners (WHNP) who are ready to answer your questions and deliver patient-centered care to help you have the healthiest pregnancy possible.
If an active duty or beneficiary spouse believes she is pregnant, obstetrical care can start without a PCM referral. Patients will need to obtain and complete a New OB Intake Packet t
o initiate their care for the pregnancy. You have the option to either print one or pick one up in person from one of the three OB clinics.
