The amazing Krista Holmes with her daughter Fiona (10 months). Krista had a previous pregnancy with a midwife that ended in miscarriage at 9 weeks. She had hoped for a midwife with this pregnancy, but was unable to get in with one. She went with an OB but continued to call the midwives every week until she was 30 weeks along hoping for a change in care. Ultimately it was for the best. She had a very healthy pregnancy and took castor oil at 41+ weeks. Once in the hospital, she ended up with a lot of interventions she hadn't anticipated but found that they were all her choice and she wasn't pressured. She opted for an epidural and later pitocin to keep things going. Her epidural wore off before she started pushing and she was able to deliver her daughter without issue. They delayed cord clamping and Fiona ended up having a blood incompatibility with Krista's blood. A diligent nurse caught the issue and Fiona was able to recover with a few days in the NICU. Krista worked on breastfeeding in the hospital and found a lot of support from the nursing staff. She and Fiona have a wonderful nursing relationship today.
