May 9, 2017

Expecting MotherHaving a baby is one of life's most precious moments.  Having a health care partner that can customize maternity care for you and your special pregnancy needs is key. You want a place that is comfortable, friendly, and will cater to you, your unborn child, and your family.

Hutzel Women's Hospital has been in the baby business for over 150 years, providing  customized labor and delivery care to every patient. Just ask Charlene Pettway, a reporting analyst and Hutzel mom.

At just 26 weeks gestation, Charlene’s water broke.  She was rushed to Hutzel where she spent 11 days on bed rest. When she delivered her baby boy, Braylen, he weighed just 2lbs 2 ozs.  Braylen spent 10 weeks and 4 days in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) and Special Care Nursery (SCN) at Hutzel where he was cared for by “the most amazing doctors and dedicated nurses,” as Charlene says.  During Braylen's stay, he experienced some minor medical setbacks. "His relentless spirit coupled with the medical team of Hutzel persevered and my baby come home with no health issues at all! Today, Braylen is thriving, walking, talking, reciting all his colors on demand, learning to count and can jump higher than any two-year old I’ve ever seen! Hutzel is a special place."
