Denise rolled up her sleeves and kept cheering me on. She helped me stay together.

I was overwhelmed with how much support and encouragement I received from the nurses at Pearland Medical Center.  This was my third pregnancy and with my previous two experiences, everything had gone smoothly.  I thought with this being my third pregnancy that it too would be uneventful. 

I live approximately 5 miles from Pearland Medical Center, which is the closest hospital to me.  I did not know that your OB services were not available anymore and I was in active labor.  I came to the ER with my husband and I could see that the staff was a bit nervous.  I recall one of the nurses exclaiming, “Oh my, it’s really happening!”  House Supervisor, Ms. Denise calmed that nurse, as well as me, and delegated tasks to others. Everything happened quickly, I was immediately placed in a bed and supplies were gathered.  I was told that I would be in charge and everything was my decision.  I felt very comfortable at that point.  Everyone acted quickly. 

I would like to thank all the nurses and especially Ms. Denise.  She was really helpful and even held my hand telling me not to scream since I did not have time to get anything for the pain.  Ms. Denise rolled up her sleeves and kept cheering me on.  I remember her telling me to ‘push, rest, push, rest’. She helped me stay together.  Ms. Denise stayed very calm and collected.  My husband and I are so thankful.  When the doctor told me that my son was 10 lbs 3 oz., I was shocked!  Ms. Denise went to the extreme.  She helped more than she was supposed to.  She was awesome.  If it were not for her, I don’t think my baby or I would be here today.
