"You truly go above and beyond for your patients - I have felt so safe and cared for the last 10 months. My birth was better than I imagined it could be. I will always remember that you told me I could do it! Thank you for being a solid rock for a (sometimes fearful) first-timer. You have given me a precious experience I will be proud of my whole life."
