    "I met Julie at the La Leche League meetings 6 years ago when I was pregnant with Alicia. She’s really down to earth and has a great calming nature. She’ll guide you through the sometime confusing medical system through your pregnancy and birth in France." (WJ, Feb 2011)

    Comments:
    "I gave birth by C-section twice at Saint-Roch, as my gyne / obstetician works out of there. Easy to reach by tram (Stade Phillipides). Not so great for parking (although there is a private parking place for those coming in for treatments / having babies). Staff lovely and friendly - you can share a twin room, have a single room or have a room where daddy can stay too (right down to fridge and meals) - rooms have shower and WC as well as bath bath and changing tables."
