"We want to make sure that they feel comfortable, that they fell like that they can come to us and that we treat them the way they should be treated. That we do the right thing and we treat them as individuals. We don't focus on the age. We focus on healthy mom, healthy baby," said Marcella Van Hoove, of the center.
