Nurse Jackie is a saint sent straight from heaven!
My partner and I knew we didn't want an over-medicalized hospital birth, but we weren't entirely comfortable with the idea of a home birth (this is our first baby). From the moment we met Nurse Jackie and toured the center, we were sold. The center was very much a middle ground between hospital and home - it provided the safety of a hospital with the care and attention of a home birth. Nurse Jackie is a saint sent straight from heaven! She goes above and beyond - like TRULY above and beyond - and is smart, knowledgeable, and caring. We really feel like she's a part of our family now. Also her childbirth class is informative and hilarious. Dr. Eng is an incredibly capable OB. I'll never forget the way she was yelling words of encouragement during my pushing stage, I really think that's what got baby out 🙂 Even though labor and birth didn't go exactly as planned (we decided together that the water birth I was hoping for wasn't the smartest move), I had a beautiful birth experience and now have a beautiful healthy baby boy, and I can't recommend the birth center enough!!
