Hidden Gem: Kelsey Ashe’s Highline Birth Story
Pregnancy means navigating countless choices, from baby names to baby monitors. But for Kelsey Ashe and her husband J.R., choosing Highline Medical Center for the 2018 birth of their third child was simple. “I think Highline’s Family Birth Center is a hidden gem,” said Kelsey. “Many people don’t even know it’s in their community. It’s small, so you never feel like you’re in a big hospital.”
Highline’s Family Birth Center providers include expert obstetricians and midwives who work together closely, said Kelsey. “At Highline, there really isn’t much difference between care provided by a midwife and care provided by an obstetrician. It’s a smaller unit so everyone has to work really closely together. The providers all spend a lot of time with you as the patient, and you always feel like you’re in good hands.”
For this birth, Kelsey chose to work with certified nurse midwife Roda Scego. “I loved the care I received from Roda, and I would highly recommend her to anyone. Everyone was great, from the people who greeted me when I arrived to the nurses. I loved the staff.”
As a longtime labor and delivery nurse herself, Kelsey supports new mothers who choose to write a birth plan. But she didn’t create one for this birth. “I knew I was being cared for by the best providers, and I chose to let them take care of me, instead of feeling like I needed to take care of myself,” she said.
“We both just can’t say enough good things about Highline, and how well I was cared for,” Kelsey said. I drove past five different hospitals to give birth at Highline. That’s how much I love it.”
