The Care You Need as a First-Time Mom
Kim came highly recommended by a friend of mine, and after working with her, I definitely understand why! Kim was very personable and took the time to answer any questions we had. I'm sure she gets the same questions over and over again from each first-time mom, but she made me feel like each question was valid - like there were no dumb questions.
My water broke while we were at home, and we went to the hospital around 4 a.m. Jenny, the labor nurse, stayed by my side the entire time. The nurses even stayed with me through a shift change!
During my labor I was able to use the laboring tub, and it was wonderful. But my labor went so quickly that Cindy, one of the nurses, actually ended up delivering our baby - Kim came right afterwards!
Although Kim wasn't there, we never felt nervous, the labor nurses knew exactly what to do - they were so experienced. They helped me through it and made me feel like "Yes, I can do this!"
There isn't enough I could say about UnityPoint Health - Trinity! Before, during and after - our experience has been wonderful. Even the food and nutrition staff was great. There is no reason to go out of town if you don't have to, everything you need is right here at UnityPoint Health - Trinity.
The care we received was exceptional, and Kim is by far my favorite health care provider that I have ever seen. She's amazing, and that's why we will be using her again - we are expecting our second baby!
