Helping moms and babies

A young mom decided she would come to Bethesda for her check ups now she was pregnant.  She had one son who was 9 and had lost multiple babies in the past. 

 

Her husband's family had started to treat her badly because she couldn’t give her husband any more babies.  She knew Bethesda could carry out tests in our lab, which other hospitals could not do. 

 

She came faithfully for her appointments with Ms Ketlye and on every visit Ms Ketlye and Dr Rodney prayed for the safe delivery of this little baby.  At the end of a smooth pregnancy a little baby girl was born

 

Today the baby is 4 months old and doing great.  Her mom is so thankful not only to have a healthy baby girl but to be able to come to a clinic where her nurse prays with her at every appointment.
