“My daughter had her first child at the Birth and Women’s Center…. I was extremely impressed with the professional, compassionate care given my daughter. Thank you from the bottom of this Grandmother’s heart!”

“This was our last baby, and I am sad to not come back. We love the BWC & Cherie so much! Thank you for making our birth experiences safe, memorable, and so uniquely special.”

“Excellent care before, during, and after the birth… They made me feel like my body was meant to birth babies rather than making the birth seem like an impossible, scary event. Just had my second birth with them!”
