Labor and Delivery Nurse and Former Traveler Sarah Helps Bring Aya Employees’ Baby into the World

March 14, 2019 | Clinician Stories , Life at Aya

When you hear “circle of life” you probably think Lion King. But to labor and delivery nurse, Sarah, and Aya employees, Hannah and Matt, it has a whole different meaning. On March 2, Hannah went into labor and she headed to the hospital along with her husband, Matt. Sarah happened to be working that very same day.

You see, Sarah is a former travel nurse who recently took a permanent job at a San Diego healthcare facility — and Hannah is the recruiter she worked with while travel nursing between her previous perm position and this one! While triaging, Sarah saw Hannah’s name listed as a patient and asked to be switched to her.

“I couldn’t believe my eyes when Sarah walked into the room,” said Hannah. “I was overwhelmed and burst into tears. It was such an emotional experience and I’m grateful I had a nurse I know and trust by my side during this unforgettable moment.”

Hannah was in labor for nearly 12 hours and Sarah was her labor and delivery nurse the entire time. When it was over, Hannah and Matt had their beautiful baby girl, Kinsley, who weighed 7 pounds, 9 ounces and was 19.5 inches long. And Sarah had an even stronger bond with her former recruiter.

“I’m so thankful Sarah was there with me to help support my wife during the most important time of our lives,” says Matt. “Kinsley is our first child, and having someone familiar guide us through the entire experience was comforting, to say the least.”

Hannah helped Sarah find a job she loved while traveling with Aya, and Sarah helped Hannah bring her first baby into the world. “This is people helping people,” Hannah says. “This is why we do what we do!”
