They were by my side for everything that happened that day

Meaghan Johnson, Patient

I’ll never forget the care that I received from Dr. Dearing, Drew Cooley, RN, and Megan Rice, RN. There were several more involved but the two of them (Drew & Megan) were by my side for everything that happened that day. They were reassuring me that everything was going to be okay, helping me get through all the pain that I went through, and was also able to keep my husband updated through the whole process. Drew was an amazing nurse helping me get through the labor process and was very supportive of what I wanted to receive pain wise. She helped me every step of the way and kept me informed of what was going to happen in the next few hours. She was able to keep me comfortable enough that I was able to get some rest before delivery. During delivery the staff was super encouraging, helpful, and made the labor process look so easy making me laugh in between contractions. Megan took over shortly after delivery and I started to hemorrhage during report. Both of them caught on real fast and was able to get the doctor back in the room. From that point on, it took them about 7 hours to fully get the bleeding to stop. It was a scary process, but the team worked so well together that I always felt like I was in good hands. Megan was always comforting me, holding my hand, and was always asking me how I was doing. Megan also made sure my husband stayed informed of what was going on when I was back in the OR which made me real happy. I couldn’t thank this team enough for the care we received. Megan was always good at advocating for what I needed at that time, and making sure that everything happened in a timely manner.
