I had the privilege of delivering all three of my baby girls at EJGH and the care was exemplary each and every time. I have made friends and in some cases second family members with the staff at EJ. They were so gentle with us when Anne Grace died. It became clear that their work isn't just a job but a calling.

This was our first child and we couldn't have had a better experience. All three nurses were so helpful and informative. It is clear how much they love their jobs and delivering babies! EJ is lucky to have these great nurses working in Labor & Delivery.
