Bonded at Birth.
Kylee has had brain surgery, so when she learned she was pregnant, her excitement quickly turned to caution. After speaking with her doctor, she learned a c-section would be the safest option for delivery. Although disappointed she couldn’t have a natural childbirth, she understood it was for the best. Fortunately, the Peggy V. Helmerich Women’s Health Center at Hillcrest Medical Center offers gentle c-sections, allowing Kylee and daughter, Gracelynn, to bond immediately after birth. She remembers the moment Gracelynn was laid on her chest; it is a memory she will never forget.
