Our Labor and Delivery department has given a new meaning to being “Baby Friendly.” 👶🏻 In a matter of 14 months, 12 nurses have delivered babies of their own and 4 more nurses have babies on the way! That’s 16 babies who are now a part of the Dignity Health family. You could say they have some experience with #deliveringhumankindness! 🧡
