They are AMAZING!! I def recommend a hb with them. They delivered my BFF's baby after 24 + hours on thanksgiving and not a MOMENT of "timetable" issues. Her husband made a thanksgiving feast during the labor(it was centering for him, he suffered from anxiety) and we all ate an amazing meal and she pushed out a sunny side up 9 lber! Her first! It was amazing!

so, yepp im with *************** this time around and trying to decide if i want to deliver at home again or not. this is my 3rd kiddo and i have huge spaces between them- DD will be 14, DS will be 6, and ill have a newborn baby girl...ahhhh! im a sucker for starting over it seems.
My labors are like a blip all 4 combined was about 6.5 hours! But I've witnessed them in all their glory with my friend so I can honestly say you will be well taken care of!
Proud Mama to Hannah
