Uniform Office at Wright-Patt seeks feedback on maternity uniforms

The Air Force Uniform Office at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base will begin surveying female Airmen starting July 22, to collect feedback on Air Force maternity uniform items.

All Air Force women will receive an e-mail from the Air Force Survey Office with a unique link inviting them to take the survey. To determine who should take the full survey, the Uniform Office is asking participants to respond to the first survey question.

Women in the Air Force are paving the way

“Getting feedback on maternity uniform items is important,” said Tracy Roan, chief of the Uniform Office. “Our goal is to make uniforms more comfortable and provide a uniform that will sustain Airmen through their entire pregnancy.”

Roan went on to add that due to privacy rules, Airmen who have worn maternity items or are currently wearing them are a difficult population to reach and the survey is a great avenue to reach them.

Feedback from the survey will help determine how well maternity uniforms are meeting the needs of pregnant Airmen and guide the design and development of the uniforms.

The survey is open to active-duty, Reserve, Guard, retired and separated Airmen, and ends Sept. 23.
