My journey of pregnancy was not the typical, my mom passed away 3 months before I gave birth. The midwives at Sweet Child were like my second mom, they were supportive and caring all the way through. The night I started labor I immediately called Kitty and she assured me everything was normal. I came in the following morning at 5 am and was admitted in full labor.
Laura came in next and asked how I was doing and let me labor on my own which was exactly what I wanted. I got in the bath at 9 cm and was starting to push soon after. Laura volunteered to break my water if I chose to help progress. She and the nurses kept me calm through the process of having to have oxygen because the baby’s heart rate dropped.
After quite a few pushes Laura could tell the baby wasn’t coming yet and recommended I get out and push on the bed. 10 pushes later our sweet baby boy, Levi Cole, was finally here. I can’t thank the whole Sweet Child team enough for all the support through the entire process from pregnancy to postpartum and breastfeeding tips and help. This was the best decision I have ever made and will definitely be back with my next.
