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
