Labor and Delivery
Carolinas HealthCare System NorthEast
United States




I was induced and Nicole was my nurse. She was always there if I needed her and explained everything she was doing. She encouraged me during contractions on how well I was breathing. I had several scares with baby's heart rate dropping and she was right on it. I was close to delivery at her shift change and she told me she was going to stay until baby was here and all was okay, because baby was in stress. I am a 17-year-old mommy and I appreciate how she did not judge me and was there for me when she could have left and gone home to her family. She's an excellent nurse!
