  1. Hi. 34 years ago Hope Davis helped me have my first baby at home .
    I was just thinking about her and wanted to say thanks again for such a great
    experience. Do you know her? She is mentioned in your history. She was indicted in the
    early 80s. Thx.

  2. Where do I find more details about the 7 licensed practices and do they accept Medicaid?
