No, but I've heard both good and not so good things.

Sadly, I might have to deliver there with our second child but I'm going to do anything and everything I can to no be there.

I don't think you have too, I mean you can choose Tricare standard

a friend of mine just delivered there a couple weeks ago. she was in labor for over 48 hours and they sent her home three times. i was with her before she went to the hospital the last time and her contractions were super close (like 3 minute). even when she got to the hospital the last time there just wasnt any room for her so she had to wait for a room to open up. sadly its not the only horror story ive heard. two girls at her baby shower with babys a few mmonths old both had bad things to say. be sure to check with tricare and find out if there are any other providers who they'll accept, but from what ive hear balboa is it.

I delivered there.... it was horrible to say the very least. I would deliver at home in the bathroom before going back there. ( calm down I wouldn't really go that far) lol
