I recently had the opportunity to show Jay Siltzer of WLOS, ABC News 13, Pardee's new birth suite. The birth suite at the Women & Children's Center is designed for healthy, low-risk mom's and babies and provides a home-like atmosphere for natural childbirth in the safety of the hospital. Certified nurse-midwife, Barbara Davenport of Pardee Nurse-Midwifery was interviewed for the story, along with her patient, Jessica Frierson. Jessica plans to deliver in the birth suite soon. The story can be seen here ABC 13 - Health Alert.
