Baby Boom at UnityPoint Health® – St. Luke’s Women’s & Children’s Center


It’s just funny like just Bam Bam Bam. One right after another. It’s exciting! Back in 2013. We had 26 associates have babies. And so this year we had 25 associates have babies in 2018. All these babies. It’s incredible we’re all a big family and we all take care of each other. Yes, it makes it awesome to have a baby here.We had 2,400 deliveries this last year 52 sets of twins, which is a record for us. It was pretty neat to have so many of us pregnant and share our stories and be together through this experience. And then unfortunately I lost my babies in March but these women in this place is what got me through so I would tell anybody to come to St. Luke’s because we’re there for the worst of times and the best of times. And I’m expecting now. When one of us is hurting we all hurt with them, you know, we all feel it. You know, we work so well together and then we meet up with each other outside of work, too so we always get all the little kids together whenever we can. Any advice I had 130 people that I could ask that was super helpful. I actually work weekend package and so a big group of us get together all during the week so that we can survive motherhood together. Our kids can play and then we all can nap later. It’s like it’s a second family you know you work so closely with everybody you work with them day in and day out. It’s really special to be able to be involved in that time of somebody’s life. Oh baby!
