Merrin's True Story of Coordinated Care

Care Coordination Helps to Deliver Healthy Twins

Already a proud mother of a daughter, Merrin Guice wanted to have more children. She became pregnant through in vitro fertilization - with twins. Because twins are almost always complicated, Merrin's family physician worked closely with a maternal-fetal doctor and an OB/GYN. The first twin was delivered fine, but there were emergencies with the second baby and Merrin herself. Because of fast, coordinated care, Merrin and the babies are now happy and healthy. She's relieved she delivered at UnityPoint Health - St. Luke's in Sioux City.
