Frequently Asked Questions
Children Policy: Children are allowed in the clinic with the exception of certain appointment types including procedures, formal ultrasounds and BPP assessments, group education or counseling classes, and during NST clinic. In order to protect patients from exposures that could be potentially harmful in pregnancy, we kindly ask that you use discretion if children are sick and without complete vaccination series. We are happy to work with you for rescheduling if you have difficulty making needed childcare arrangements.
What is Group Care? Lead by a Certified Nurse Midwife, Group Prenatal Care is an appealing concept of care for many of our patients and families. Some Highlights Include: Small groups of 8-10 moms/couples with close due dates who participate in a shared group session followed by a shorter, individual appointment, spouses encouraged to attend! Your Group sessions allow for shared learning and getting to know each other, appointments are pre-scheduled for the duration of pregnancy and postpartum follow up, and you’ll have special guest speakers to cover important topics such as nutrition, physical activity, breastfeeding, and your local KMC resources. Please ask the clinic for more details or let us know if you are interested!
I think my pregnancy is high-risk, do I need to see the MFM specialist? You will discuss your complete health and obstetric history at the first provider appointment. Certain pregnancies may be considered higher risk for complications and will be assessed in-depth by your provider; if needed, you will be referred for consultation with the Maternal Fetal Medicine Section and determined if you need closer monitoring in pregnancy. Some of those conditions might include: heart defects, clotting disorders, immune diseases, Sjogren’s Syndrome or genetic disorders, seizure disorders, pre-eclampsia, recurrent miscarriages, fetal anomalies, cerclage placement in prior pregnancies, or other chronic health conditions that may complicate pregnancy.
What is the Storknest Program and who is eligible? LRMC Ob/Gyn Clinic is honored to support a special host-program for the management of pregnancy and delivery for patients throughout Europe, Africa, and other overseas areas where routine or high-risk OB care is not available at their assigned location. For a complete guide to the LRMC Storknest Program, please visit the Storknest website.
How do I get my records from a civilian provider to LRMC? Please contact the Patient Administration Office/Medical Records department at 06371-9464-5204. You will need to know the Hospital and Provider’s name and location, as well as the dates you received care.
I am getting ready to PCS. How do I get my records transferred? Your records can be accessed immediately at the next Military Treatment Facility (MTF) on the Electronic Medical Record (EMR), AHLTA. If you are transferring or separating to a location without a military hospital or clinic, please go to the Patient Administration Office within three weeks of PCS to request a printed copy of your records.
If I have a concern, who can I direct it to? Please ask to speak with the Clinical Nurse Officer in Charge (CNOIC) or the Assistant CNOIC. If they are not available, please contact the Landstuhl Patient Advocacy Office for assistance.

Getting off to the right start in life is important. For people like LeVar Burton, that included being born at Landstuhl Regional Medical Center, where quality care includes a team of dedicated staff members, patient-centered health care, lactation support, and maximizing the patient experience through family bonding. We can't guarantee your baby will boldly go in the same career path as Mr. Burton...but we can promise the best possible care to get them started in the right direction.
