"I am so appreciative of the whole team here! From my first ultrasound/appointment to postpartum care was just amazing. I always felt welcome, updated and always had all my questions answered. I bounced around from nurses, midwife’s and doctors. I didn’t meet anyone I didn’t like or felt uncomfortable around. All amazing! As well as front desk staff! I chose elective induction. It was definitely a process but something I wanted and I followed my gut. Glad I did because I carried him so low for like 3 months which did take part in me hemorrhaging. My baby also pooped on his way out. We were both okay! I felt like I had every nurse, midwife and doctor in my labor room lol! I felt safe, calm and comfortable the entire time! I’d like to say thank you to every employee member from front desk, nurses, doctors and midwife’s at womens health/birth center for helping bring our baby boy into this world and keeping us both safe/healthy! I can’t name every person but the names I did get were Alex midwife, Anna night nurse helped us settle in our labor room night before baby came. Amazing people! Alex came and talked to you quite often and chit chatted sometimes about just life. Kelsey, Katie day nurses did great I was wanting to move around a lot more then they wanted because they needed readings so they did great being patient with me. Kerrie midwife is I believe who actually helped me through labor from the start of contractions to birth. She stayed calm but was firm with me to make sure I understand and focused which is what I really respected and needed. Emily came by to say hi and ended up helping Kerrie fix me up great team work. Laura night nurse was one of my favorites maybe because we spent so much time together or that we just clicked more. She was right there by my side through pretty much my whole labor. Held one of my legs up when I asked lol. Comforted me during rough contractions. Regardless who you get during your doctors appointment to labor and delivery you are in great hands! I wish I made a better list of all who I saw during this journey and all who assisted in labor and delivery room but I’d just need the full list of employees 💗💗. Thank you!! 💙 Baby boy is 6 weeks now in photo!"
