Pregnancy and Parenthood at USNA

Navigating a family with a career can be challenging. We understand this! The USNA CAPP Program (Command Advisor on Parenthood and Pregnancy) is dedicated to providing guidance and resources for our families at USNA, as well as the leadership across the Yard and NSA Annapolis. 

CAPP responsibilities include, but are not limited to:

  • Ensure all members are aware of the resources and services available to them as they transition into parenthood
  • Serve as the main point of contact for any member, regardless of parenthood or pregnancy status, for questions or concerns regarding parenthood & pregnancy rights and services   
  • Ensure members are aware of and receive counseling services from professionals, as applicable, for each pregnancy and/or additional child
  • Keep command leaders informed of changes to the Navy's parenthood & pregnancy policies and programs
