There are moments of beauty and strength during pregnancy, delivery and infant care. There are also moments of extreme vulnerability where your body feels fragile and feelings of insecurity creep in. Chinyere's calm demeanor and knowledgeable advice helped during both of my pregnancies. She definitely has the ability to meet you where you are to help you get where you want to be. The only thing I would change is to have had her involved more!  Sincerely, Alex Stallings
