Expecting Moms: Sarah Scheidler

Mom-to-be Sarah Scheidler and her husband  are embarking on a new, exciting adventure together. They’re about to be parents. And, although the whole crazy process can be overwhelming, they’re doing pretty good…with just a little help. This is Sarah’s story:

My husband and I are about to be first-time parents.  And, with first-time parenthood comes a myriad of information that I really feel can be stressful at times.  We have had such a great experience with our OB, Dr. Hilary Gaudreau.  She is absolutely wonderful and so far everything really has been just perfect.  Dr. Gaudreau is a mom of three boys and I  very comfortable talking with her about all of my worries and concerns. She seems to really understand where I am coming from.

At  St.Vincent, we have a great ally and advocate in nurse Kathy Ryan. We met Kathy through the Monogram Maternity program back in June. And, thanks to Kathy,  we learned so much about the whole hospital and birthing process in a very peaceful, relaxing  and comforting way.

When we arrived at the hospital, Kathy gave us a great tour of the facilities so we could begin to picture how the big day would unfold. My first impression was that place is beautiful and seemed so welcoming.  I’m still impressed with the whole program and how easy and seamless  everything seems.

Kathy walked us through the process of creating a birth plan and helped us organize so we can begin the process of laying out what we want our birth experience to be like.  Kathy talked to us about all of the childbirth classes offered at St. Vincent and we’re definitely planning on taking those.

We could not have been more impressed with the stress-free atmosphere that we have experienced so far at St. Vincent Monogram Maternity and are counting the days!

Sarah and her husband are planning on welcoming their little one on November 7, 2012.

If you would like more information on the Monogram Maternity program, please email Kathy Ryan @ Monogram-womens@stvincent.org. She will be happy to help you, too.
