VA Western New York Healthcare System
A Baby Shower for Ericka
In July, the Erie County American Legion Women’s Post #1586 hosted a baby shower for Ericka, a Veteran who is expecting soon. Food and gifts were plentiful, including a crib, a stroller and a car seat. She also left stocked with diapers and other supplies to get started. All that’s left now is the delivery of her new baby girl.
For eligible Veterans, VA covers maternity care throughout the pregnancy. Newborn care is also covered for the first week of baby’s life.
