Journey for Help: Ivy’s Story

February 8 2018 4:16pm
When complications endangered unborn baby Ivy, her parents left home to seek help at BC Women's Hospital.

Bryn and Emily were in the middle of every parent’s nightmare.

It was Emily’s second pregnancy, and complications had arisen. Terrified, they didn’t know whether their baby would survive or what challenges she might face. Despite the distance, they left their home in Sun Peaks for help. They knew that BC Women’s Hospital was where they needed to be for the future of their child.

Within hours of their arrival, Bryn and Emily had met with several specialists in different areas. The Hospital staff quickly made the couple feel safe and confident in the quality of care.

“The care we received was second to none. It was like watching a well-oiled machine at work.” -Emily

Thankfully their story has a happy ending—or perhaps it is better called a happy beginning. After all, their daughter Ivy’s story is just getting started. Today she is a strong and healthy one-year-old. Curious and active, she loves to follow her older brother around, and always wants to be part of the excitement of this busy family.

The family decided to express their gratitude to the Hospital with a BC Women’s Baby Tile on the Hospital walls.

“Our Baby Tile represents how thankful we are to BC Women's Hospital for the pre- and post-natal care we received before and after Ivy's birth…British Columbia is lucky to have such a world-class facility.” -Bryn
