The staff and midwives here are amazing! Having worked alongside them photographing at a birth I can testify that they really believe that a woman's body is strong and capable and they allow the family the space and options to have the birth that they are wanting. There were many laughs, tears of joy, and beautiful moments that I will treasure forever.- Danica D
