Jenna Peterson – OB Care

After struggling with endometriosis and infertility for many years, Jenna Peterson sought help from two obstetrical specialists at Riverwood, Dr. Michael Cady and Dr. Rachel Cady.

“I had experienced multiple miscarriages, so as soon as I found out I was pregnant, Dr. Michael Cady was very proactive in helping maintain my pregnancy. I had my labs drawn every week, and at one point I was getting progesterone shots three times a week. He would personally call me with all my results.

We received the most personalized care from the moment we achieved conception throughout my entire pregnancy so there was no doubt that we would choose Riverwood for the delivery of our second baby. We also have a 7-year-old daughter, Madison.

Toward the end of my pregnancy I struggled with kidney stones. Dr. Christina Kramer, OB specialist who works closely with Drs. Cady, was on call during this time and she went well above and beyond to care for me and help manage my pain. She treated me as if I had been her patient from day one.

Dr. Kramer ended up inducing me at 38 weeks. She stayed in my room throughout the entire labor and delivery, encouraging me along the way. We didn’t find out the gender of our baby during prenatal care, so it was really exciting when she announced we had another baby girl–Taylor!

We had the most amazing nurses throughout labor and delivery! They did everything they could to help me get as comfortable as possible. Immediately after delivery, the OB staff encouraged mother and baby skin-to-skin contact and helped facilitate breastfeeding. It was so nice to deliver in a Baby Friendly Hospital!

The birthing suites at Riverwood are huge and very private. All our family members who came to visit commented on how nice our room was!

At Riverwood, everyone on the staff genuinely cares about you and your family, and it shows. One of the family docs who does OB care, Dr. Erik Bostrom, stopped by to see Taylor when we came back to the hospital for our lactation consultation.

I highly recommend Riverwood to any family looking for the best birthing experience. You will not find a more family-oriented facility around. Riverwood will always be my family’s number one choice for care!”
