J, my mother, Lorenzo and I wanted to thank you all very much for the wonderful care you took of Lorenzo and I during my pregnancy, labor and birth. It was not the birth that I had originally imagined, but thanks to your care, patience and attention I was able to avoid a c-section delivery and Lorenzo was born very healthy – which is what matters the most. He is growing and changing by the day (I can’t believe he is almost 1 month already!) and we are sooo in love with him. I am very happy that we were educated on the options available to us so that throughout the labor we were able to make decisions and be flexible with our original birth plan- thank you for taking the time to explain our options and offer support and advice throughout the labor and birth. I will never forget Lorenzo’s birth- the three of you worked so well together- as a seamless team- and I felt really lucky to have you all there. You are all very incredible people- and we are very grateful. Please extend our thanks to the nurses and staff at Saint Vincents- they were amazing- I can’t thank them enough for their care and attention throughout our stay- a friend had told me that the nurses make St Vincents- and she was correct- our stay would not have been the same without them. Also please thank Lourdes and Leanne who were wonderful and supportive during all of my visits to the office- including the last one when my labor was already in progress. I am attaching some pictures we took during our stay at St Vincent’s.
