Lacie Hietalati – OB care

“I’ve gotten my medical care with Riverwood Healthcare Center since I was a child, so there was no doubt of where I would get care for having a baby.

When it came to my questions of labor and delivery and being a first time parent, Dr. Erik Bostrom was always so patient and understanding. He answered all my questions with confidence, and if he wasn’t sure he would check on the answer and get back to me right away. When I was in labor, he stayed with me for the whole experience.

We felt so comfortable and confident with Dr. Bostrom, and the OB nurses were phenomenal! They were so encouraging throughout my labor experience. Being a first-time mom, I didn’t know much about breastfeeding. I was so pleased that Riverwood had lactation consultants who could help me and give the support and reinsurance that I needed.

At my daughter Reese’s 2-week check-up, Dr. Bostrom brought in this gorgeous pink baby blanket with her name, date of birth, height and weight on it. My husband, Willy, and I felt so grateful that he took the time to make the baby blanket.  He exceeded my expectations for sure!

The Riverwood birthing suite was so comfortable and private.  Having our own personal bathroom and a sofa sleeper for my husband to stay with me, it was hard to tell we were at a hospital. My favorite part of the suite was the jacuzzi tub! A big shout-out to the kitchen staff for making us a special dinner once our daughter had arrived. It was simply delicious!

If you are looking for a family-like atmosphere, helpful and friendly staff and amazing care, Riverwood is the place to go!”
