July 2019

Congratulations to Michele Miller, RNC-OB, L and D R2S, the recipient of Reading Hospital's DAISY Award for July 2019.

"I had HELLP syndrome, stroke and an emergency c-section. I have no memories of the birth of my child. My husband was not permitted into operation room due to the serious circumstances. This thoughtful nurse and mother went above and beyond and took pictures with my cell phone, capturing this special moment for me and my family when we could not. I was unable to see my baby for 3 more days while recovering from my stroke but these pictures kept me strong and brought me joy during the most emotionally and physically challenging time of my life. Thank you, Michele."
