S3E2: MATERNITY SERVICES Journey to a First Christmas Part 2

In the conclusion of this two-part episode of Medical Moments, new mom Natalie Hudson celebrates the birth of her first baby, Evelyn. But complications for the mom have arisen.

Locked deep in Natalie’s mind are Christmas memories she’ll one day share with Evelyn. The snowy days growing up in Ohio and eating handmade doughnuts during the holidays weren’t her primary thoughts four days after she gave birth. That’s because fear had replaced joy as Natalie’s blood pressure climbed dangerously high.

What did Northside nurses and doctors discover? And what does Natalie say about the simple joys of the season as she and her family approach their first Christmas together? Listen and you’ll find a holiday surprise after the credits of this episode.
