I have worked as a Labor Doula with clients from Tepeyac Family Center for over 12 years. This practice encourages their clients to have labor doulas with them to help them have a more satisfying birth experience. They have always been very kind to me as a doula and always included me in the conversations with the client when decisions needed to be made and even asked if I had any other ideas that would be helpful. I do recommend this practice. They are very open to large families and are more flexible to mommy's wishes and desires then many other practices.

We need more organizations like this. Divine Mercy is healthcare that supports the body, mind and spirit of its patients. It is so refreshing to see medical groups that go beyond the science of medicine to treat the the patient as a human person, not as a constellation of symptoms.
