The Exempla Saint Joseph Hospital Nurse-Midwifery team recently delivered ESJH Nurse-Midwifery baby number 1,000 into the world.
Vida, which means life, was born at 6:35 on June 21st, and her family agreed that her name could be shared. The beautiful 7 lb, 12 oz girl was a first for her mother, Lorena, who had the support of her husband, her mom, other family members and one of Exempla Saint Joseph Hospital’s Doulas!
Baby Vida was delivered by Barbara Hughes, Director of Nurse Mid-Wifery.
"What an honor to be the nurse-midwife to shepherd this lovely baby into the world," said Hughes.
The Nurse-Midwifery team still has about 20 mothers due this month. They’re "all hands on deck" waiting for the call with the wonderful news that a new mom-to-be is in labor.
Together, ESJH’s Nurse-Midwifery team has more than 123 years of nurse-midwifery experience. For more information, visit www.exempla.org.
