Testimonials

  • "When I called MotherToBaby looking for information on medication to use during pregnancy, I was pleasantly surprised to speak with someone who relayed her information with kindness, wisdom, and validation for my concerns as opposed to mechanically dispensing facts. Chris was supportive and patient as she walked me through each question and concern, no matter how seemingly trivial. I am truly blessed to have spoken with such a compassionate and knowledgeable counselor and will certainly be calling again with any other questions that may arise. Thank you Chris and MotherToBaby!" - Julianne from AZ
