A Star is Born / Emersyn Isabella Kelly / November 6, 2017 / 5lbs 11oz

Posted on Monday, November 6th, 2017 |

I had to have a c-section, so the room was filled with Dr.'s and nurses, some of which I had never met before.  However, everyone made me feel so comfortable and at ease.  I was incredibly nervous (which for me means I get very quiet), but without saying anything, the fabulous nurse who brought me up (Leslie) took my hand as I received my epidural and chatted wtih me to distract me.  Everyone was constantly checking on me, asking how I was feeling and how they could make me more comfortable, and even made some jokes to lighten up the mood.  Once my hubby was allowed in the operating room, they were also wonderful with him and did the same to make sure he was as at ease as possible.  And of course having Dr. Nwebube be the one to actually perform my surgery after taking such good care of me throughout my entire pregnancy, was such a relief as well.  I can't say thank you enough to the incredible staff at WLMH - I was born and raised in Grimsby, but currently live in Niagara Falls, and would without a doubt come back to Grimsby for the delivery of our next baby! 

Karen is the baby whisperer!  She is an expert at what she does and was able to keep Emersyn calm and relaxed, and captured amazing photos because of this!!  I would without a doubt recommend using Karen for newborn photography!  I am very grateful to be a part of the ASIB and support the amazing hospital that helped bring our little bundle of joy into the world.  We can't wait to see her on wall of fame with all the other little awesome WLMH babies! 

Emersyn is such a gift to us!  She is a smiley, active little bundle of joy.  She has already surpised us with so many smiles, giggles and kicks, and has such a big personality already.  We cannot wait to watch her grow and see what else she has in store for us!!
