Coughing then maybe, Baby.

Looking back on that day it was mid-afternoon in Sunny October and i was feeling lousy. I went for a walk earlier after my 2 WEEKS overdue baby girl decided to stay put! There we were at the apartment my husband and I as we brainstormed ever exercise imaginable for me.

I had very mild contractions for most of the experience. Through my anxiety and unwavering mood swings, i later learned i just needed to let a lil’ more love in. Lol– So, about 6 pm i feel some aches and the timing wasn’t consistent. We went through it for the whole night. Watching the clock praying that early labor would progress. I called the Midwife Sandra Lynne. “It is about 5-6 minutes apart!” She brushed it off with the typical “Everythings fine, call back later.” To my demise she was right! And this would be the beginning of 72 hours of a LONGGGg drawn out Labor. But it wasnt hard core.

I got up the next morning after 2 hours of sleep and began to pack. They were becoming more intense. The squats from the other night were beginning to pan out. So, we got there and after 12 more hours i elected Epidural seeing that my dialation wouldnt progress fast enough for the pitocin that was administered. There shortly after, i was so exhausted and was allowed (managed) to sleep. I woke up and everything began to sync. Then, this lady pops in from the midwife team and she was pregnant as well, she was on her 9th child. Well that was certainly the type of encouragement women need. Wheww! She and Nora delivered me and boy was I ready. I must say the numbing sensetation was just enough as i got another dose right before they exclaimed, “PUSH!” From there was an act of what i call absolute ‘GENIOUS’ when Nora had memtioned to me that i should cough… my legs were going numb people were beginning to crowd to room. “Cough!” She said, amd it was miraculous. After about 15 coughs my baby entered the world. What a sigh of relief and Amazing intuitive work. My baby girl is here and it took less than 20 minutes.

The doctor and nurses were great, friendly and cheerful.

As I was pregnant thinking about going through labor was worrisome for me being the first time. The doctor and nurses were great, friendly and cheerful, they checked my newborn out often after birth and thoroughly before he went home after two days healthy 7.3 pounds.

Your nurses did a wonderful job.

I just wanted to share a story to thank two of your nurses that work in the labor and delivery department. I would like to thank Carmen and Jennifer for doing such a great job helping me during my miscarriage on December 7th 2012. They did a wonderful job. Thank you so much for having really great nurses on the labor and delivery floor!

Thank you Bronson for saving my life and my baby’s life!!!

My family and I will always hold Bronson and all the staff close to our hearts. They were truly our angels in a serious emergency situation.

I was 36 weeks pregnant and on bed rest for high blood pressure when I woke up feeling sick in March 2010. I had vomitted and passed out. My husband quickly took me to Labor and Delivery at Bronson.

Dr. Tempest Allen, the OBGYN on call, responded very quickly to the symptoms I was having. She performed an ultrasound determining that baby was in good health. Due to the headache I was complaining about, she ordered a CT Scan and MRI and found that I was suffering from a brain hemorrhage. Many many doctors and nurses from the Neurosciences team, along with Dr. Robert Austin, a high-risk pregnancy doctor as well as Dr. Allen, quickly gathered around me to discuss the order of procedures that would take place.

My husband said it was amazing how many doctors responded within minutes. All of the sudden they were lined up, all explaining their roles and drawing pictures to help my family understand what was happening so they could quickly make the best decisions.

Dr.Fabi immediately started an extra-ventricular drain to relieve some of the pressure in my brain. Dr. Austin then performed an emergency C-section. My new baby girl Makenna was safely delivered. The final step was an endovascular coiling procedure performed by Dr. Noonan to stop blood flow to the aneurysm.

I remember waking up after two surgeries and many procedures. I was completely confused and had no idea what was happening. All the nurses were fantastic, comforting me and explaining to me everything that was going on. They set up a webcam into the NICU so I could watch my new baby.

I truly cannot say enough good things about all of the nurses and doctors. They all took such good care of me as well as everyone in my family. They were continously communicating with my husband and family members on updates and explained everything very thoroughly. They were all very compassionate and professional. I spent 16 days in ICU and I remember telling plenty of nurses and doctors “Thank you for taking such good care of me,” and every single one of their responses was the same. They would say, “I just love what I do!” That was very evident in all of their actions. All of the nurses and doctors that we had experience with showed such deep concern and care for myself and my family. In fact, one of my family members that spent a great deal of time at the hospital during our stay was noticing how every staff member loved their job so much and was so happy, he applied to be a volunteer at Bronson (he is under 18) and he is now working as a volunteer and loving the volunteer program at Bronson.

I was definitely in the right place. The team was amazing and I don’t know that I would have been as well taken care of if I had been anywhere else. Bronson has been and always will be our hospital.  Thank you Bronson for saving my life and my baby’s life!!!
