Meet Alayna Marie: A Finley Baby
My name is Stephanie Juergens and I gave birth to my daughter, Alayna Marie Juergens on March 7, 2017 at Finley. She was 8 lbs, 3 oz. and 20 inches long.
We are from Dubuque, Iowa and had our previous daughter Emma Juergens at Finley on June 16, 2014. I was blessed to have Barb for my nurse for the delivery of both of my daughters, and I only hope that she will be there for any future children I have as well. She was absolutely amazing and kept me calm and comfortable both times.
My first birth was a planned c-section and my second was a natural delivery. She was always encouraging and will forever be one of my favorite nurses. I liked that during both of my times at Finley, the staff were very friendly and always checking in to make sure I was comfortable. I loved that the previous nurse would introduce you to the next nurse so there were no surprises when the shift changed.
My only words of wisdom for any new mom is, do not over pack. The staff and hospital take amazing care of you, and they have everything you need for your stay.
