Joani Claxton, 60 Medical Group, registered nurse, and Amy Payne, a contract certified nurse midwife, show off “peanut balls” in the David Grant USAF Medical Center labor and delivery unit Feb. 11, 2018, at Travis Air Force Base, California. The balls are offered to pregnant women as part of a study to determine if they can reduce labor time and the need for a cesarean section. The Maternal Child Flight at David Grant USAF Medical Center at Travis Air Force Base, Calif., is scheduled to host an open house in the labor and delivery unit Feb. 23 from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Visitors will be able to tour the private and home-like suites, meet staff members, as well as certified nurse midwives. During the event, staff members will be available to discuss birthing options. Everyone is invited to attend, including families and visitors will be eligible for prizes and souvenirs.
