“This little girl is our first child born at St. Croix Regional,” said Shawna. Our physician, Dr. Melissa Hall and Carolyn Christensen, our OB nurse, were very helpful during labor and delivery. Our birthing suite is very lovely and the care we received during and after the birth was especially thoughtful and caring. Everyone was able to answer all our questions and provide help when needed while still meeting our wishes for privacy. We received excellent care and really appreciated the little extras, like the special meal and birthday cake we enjoyed to celebrate our daughter’s birth.” Grandparents are Angela and Tony Hochstetler of Frederic, WI and Tammy and Shawn Hayes of Webster, WI.
As the parents of the first child born in 2012 at St. Croix Regional Medical Center, the proud and happy couple received a gift of a monogrammed pastel baby swaddle from the Medical Center, a gift basket, afghan for Mom and baby from the SCRMC Volunteer Partner’s Gift shop; a $25 Visa card from Central Bank of St. Croix Falls; a newborn photography package from Julie Buck of JB Studios; Zumba fitness classes from Eileen Gutzmer of Step Studio, a $50 gift certificate from Marketplace Foods; a six month subscription to The Leader, $25 in baby products from WalMart, and a gift of baby slippers with matching snugglies blanket from Tangen Drug. We are grateful to these merchants for generously offering these gifts for the baby and family of the first child of 2012.
