“My pregnancy and delivery were not very straightforward but they continuously partnered with me to make the decisions for the kind of birth I wanted. Nurses were very sweet, informative, and gave me space to explore my role as a new mother. I’ll definitely be coming back for my future pregnancies.” – Taylor M.
