My husband and I had our little girl, Eliana Grace, at the Boone Family Birthplace. It was such a great experience that we went through.
We were suppose to be induced on Friday, April 5, 2013, but ended up going in Friday morning. We were discharged that next Monday around lunch time. Our little girl was born on April 6, 2013, at 7:57 a.m.
She weighed 7 pounds, 11.7 ounces and was 20.25 inches long. Through the labor and delivery process we had two of the most AMAZING nurses that I have ever met. Friday morning, when we got to Boone Family Birthplace, our nurse was Rachel. She was so kind and so caring, it made my husband and I feel more comfortable going through this process.
Through the night, we then had Hilary. I felt so relaxed knowing that Rachel (an amazing nurse) was leaving us with another amazing nurse. That next morning Rachel was our nurse again. So wonderful having the same nurses go through the process with you.
Their words were so encouraging and they made the process so enjoyable. I knew our little girl was going to be in great hands. We also had them during our postpartum care along with some other nurses that were amazing — Sarah and Clare.
Dr. Thies was also so wonderful. I cannot imagine going through this whole entire process without her. She answered all of our questions and concerns when we had them and gave me great confidence in the experience we were about to go through.
I knew that no matter what happened, Dr.Thies would take such great care of both of us. Such a wonderful doctor and such a sweetheart.
All of the other staff during our stay were so kind as well. We are so glad we chose the Boone Family Birthplace and are so blessed to have a beautiful baby girl that we love so much!
