Jodi Holschlag holds many titles – among them, delivery nurse, mother and grandmother. Her career choice has given her the unique opportunity to blend her personal and professional lives by taking part in eleven of her grandchildren’s births.
These births were all at Waverly Health Center (WHC), where Jodi has been a labor and delivery nurse for 19 years. Jodi’s children live in Waterloo, Nashua, Charles City and Nora Springs, but Jodi recommended WHC because of the trust she has in the doctors, nurses and staff. “They are all excellent and caring. I knew they would do their very best to keep them safe.”
Jodi had different roles in each of the births – capturing beautiful photographs for one, helping deliver two, and always being there for support. “I was able to take some of the scary, unknown parts out of delivery for my children. I was right by their side telling them what they were feeling was normal and to answer any questions they had. Each birth was so special and were incredible experiences to be a part of – I got to witness my children become parents,” finished Jodi.
