Jeannie is a sweet friend I met at the hospital - she works in a neighboring unit. When I met with her for her consultation, we hit it off from the start. I mentioned that l hadn't been floated to work in her unit in quite some time. In fact, we had never officially met in person until the consultation. We had never crossed paths at work. To my surprise, the very next day, I was floated to her unit! I even gave report to her that night at the end of my shift, transferring the care of my babies to her. By the end of her shift, she was into labor.
Will was a few weeks early and spent some time in the NICU for respiratory issues, but was able to make it home in time for his newborn session, which was 2 days before his due date.
Will's session went great and his parents were so warm and welcoming. They even offered me some coffee! I don't always get to drink it because I'm busy working with the babies, but I certainly appreciate the gesture! I absolutely loved working with this family and their sweet boy!
