She knelt by my bed and cried with me when it hurt. She shared many encouraging stories and made me and my husband feel empowered to be the best caregivers to our baby girl. She did all of this while caring for me and my physical recovery with respect and genuine concern. I pray that when we have our next baby, we will be blessed to deliver at East Cooper and we will have Olga as our nurse again. She is extraordinary!”
