Here is what some of our new mothers and fathers have said about the FPMS/birthdocs in an anonymous questionnaire:
“I liked how similar all the doctors are in their approach and treatment styles. They are all so calm, relaxed, caring, respectful & knowledgeable! I also liked how important it is to them that childbirth is as natural as possible!”
“The doctor was there for ME and did not have to attend to others at the same time.”
“We really liked your philosophy of respectful care. We were impressed with your ability to provide this care as a team.”
“I loved the attitude that was taken by this group of doctors. As a group I could tell they had lots of personal experience & that they believed in ‘patient-driven’ care for myself. This means that I felt comfortable knowing that I would have a say in my care & get solid information when I needed it. The 3 doctors I primarily saw during my labour knew exactly what I experienced. My feelings and needs were listened to, my questions knowledgeably and carefully answered.”
“I felt the doctors I saw enjoyed what they did and were very competent. They were nice and easy to talk to. They made me feel I could manage the situation and made me feel confident. It was very special when I assisted in delivering my own child by helping to pull her out of me and put her on my chest. It made me feel really wonderful.”
“I liked the personal attention and respect when things are of a very delicate nature. I’m quite a shy person and felt ok.”
“I appreciated that there were no ‘stupid questions’. All our concerns were respected and answered well.”
“Everyone truly cared for me & my baby. There was always someone there for me when I needed them. They made my labour & delivery both very special events for me! Thank you!”
“I really liked how collaborative everyone was. I was always consulted, given options, and always supported in every choice I made. The professionalism of everyone was incredible. And their knowledge was extensive and helpful, never patronizing. Patient care is obviously their first priority.”
“We really liked how human and non-interventionistic the doctor was when it came to pain relief. “Meet The Doctors Night” was an amazing way to become familiar with the several doctors (besides our primary caregiver) who were involved in our labour.”

Theres not enough room on this page to say all the good things I have to mention about Dr J. Hardial. Not only did she listen with intention to all my concerns but her acute actions in helping me were by far nothing short of amazing. Whatever I needed whether it was to make referalls, sign me up for free services, any extra help I needed, she would resolve in such a way that I felt heard, respected and with such loving care. I always felt a bit tainted or less than when a dr would look at my chart due to certain circumstances in my life yet dr Hardial never once made me feel nothing other than a loving mother that does her very best for her children and always always always made me feel like she was on my side like my husband or BFF would be. Any person lucky enough to have her as their dr would tell you the same. I just wish every single dr in the world was just like her. My kids and I are doing so amazing because I was lucky enough to have had her in my life. Thank you so much dr Hardial for being the angel I never knew I so very much needed or deserved.
