An Official US Navy mobile application, produced by the Navy PMW 240 Program.
The Pregnancy & Parenthood application, updated for 2018, provides important Navy administrative guidance for Servicemembers who are starting or expanding their families, as well as for their Command leadership. The app includes Navy guidance regarding assignments, retention, separation, standards of conduct and much more.
Pregnancy and parenthood can be compatible with a successful military career when Sailors and their Commands both understand their roles and responsibilities. This app makes that task easier by including pertinent regulations, instructions and references from a variety of sources in one easy-to-use app.
The app helps Servicemembers understand the personal and professional responsibilities that come with parenthood while serving in the Navy. At the same time, the app offers Command leadership and Supervisors information regarding their roles, appropriate expectations and required actions when advising Servicemembers who are starting or expanding a family.
The application is divided into the following sections for ease of use:
> Pregnancy Guidelines, Limitations and Responsibilities. This section provides information about workplace assignments, medical considerations, pregnancy loss, abortion and related topics. It also covers medical, physical and ergonomic limitations during pregnancy, as well as ongoing responsibilities during pregnancy, including physical readiness, maternity uniforms and child care.
> Personnel Management. This section offers guidance on assignments and evacuations during pregnancy, complicated and high-risk pregnancies, adoption, separation from service, and leave policy.
> Healthcare Benefits. This section covers topics related to provision of healthcare, pregnancy planning, conception, breastfeeding and related issues.
In addition, the app includes a Favorites section for bookmarking app pages and an Emergency section, which offers information on a variety of crisis-related topics. The Pregnancy & Parenthood app is also searchable.
This app is a resource to help all naval personnel understand Navy policies and procedures regarding pregnancy and parenthood. Download yours today!
