Nurses are doula friendly but use very harmful language

Parking is difficult, park in the back by the "birth center" opening next to the ER - but in the North West parking lot by Imaging

Parking is tricky. In the back behind the Birth Center (not ER) parking, there are several prepaid parking lots.
