“I went to Heart and Hands for Midwifery services, and Jeanne and Honey were AMAZING. I enjoy both of them very much, and they always made me feel super supportedmy ENTIRE pregnancy. They really do love their jobs, and it expands to their entire staff and clinic. Honey made my birthing experience the best one I have ever had and she really goes above and beyond to let you feel so much peace, trust, love, and support. I recommend everyone who has babies to be cared for by these women. Even their nurses and receptionists make you feel loved. You will always leave their clinic fully energized and feeling so much love. I just can't say enough. Thank you Honey for believing in me, and being the best midwife in the entire world! I love you!"

"Honey, Jeanne and everyone at Heart & Hands are so sweet and caring and understanding! My pregnancy and postpartum with my second pregnancy was 100% different and had complications during pregnancy and had a long last two weeks and they were all supportive and answered any and all my questions no matter what time a day or night it was! They truly love what they do and have a heart for the people in this valley! Will be going back to them next pregnancy in a heartbeat❤️ love you all💕"
"A group of amazing women that truly care about the well-being of everyone involved. They go above and beyond what you would expect any regular doctor office to do. They truly have your best interests at heart and will do anything within their means to provide it for you--no exaggeration. It was such a blessing to have come into this office, I wouldn't be where I am at right now without the help of these strong women."
