New MilParent is a Military OneSource specialty consultation designed specifically for expectant parents and parents of children up to 5 years of age.
If you’re getting ready to welcome a new baby or are currently parenting a young child, you may be ready to lean on your support system. Parenting is an adventure – but it’s not one to be taken alone. New military parents need back-up from their family, friends, unit and the entire military community.
