What’s it really like to have a baby at Swedish?
“We had August at Swedish Ballard. They were so nice. They were really calming. I wasn’t at all worried, nervous, or stressed out.”
“Being at Swedish, it felt like we were at home. Everybody was friendly. It just felt like we were well taken care of, so it took that stress and edge away.”
“I was very happy with how quick and efficient everybody was. You’d think that going into childbirth there would be a little bit of chaos, but it was very peaceful.”
“The people were all so friendly. They really love what they are doing. I think that is one of the most important things.”
