Labor of Love
As a vollyball player, Kelly knows the importance of teamwork, and that's what she received from Ministry.
The day Kelly went into labor she initially thought her water had broken early that morning and decided to go to Ministry Saint Clare’s Hospital during her lunch hour. She discovered that her water had not broken, but that she was in the early stages of labor. Around 8:00 p.m. that evening she could feel the contractions fairly regularly, and at 10:45 her water broke. Initially it seemed Kelly would have plenty of time for an epidural, but labor progressed so quickly, the nursing staff had to react quickly to get her set to deliver.
Ultimately Kelly delivered without complications and soon had a healthy baby boy whom she named Ryan. She talks about the nursing staff with great enthusiasm along with the facilities at Minitstry Saint Clare's Family Birth Center.
