Here are our Statistics for 2019! I appreciate the hard work of our team, and while the numbers are very important, there are so many other things that we can’t put a number on and are not in our annual report. Things like midwife response time, education, relationship, follow up, and what we all want most as patients… to be heard and to feel cared for by our health care providers. At Sweet Child O’ Mine, we all love what we do and we love our families. Because of that, we strive to provide the best care possible by continuing to evaluate ourselves, ask for your feedback, and regularly review and update our protocols and procedures. This is the purpose of statistics… accountability and improvement. Thank you, Team, for all your hard work caring for our families! And thank you to our families for putting your trust in us.
