Intimate & Personal Birth Experience

Rachel Cochran and her husband welcomed a beautiful baby boy, Pilot, at North Alabama Medical Center. Rachel had a natural birth in the HOPE suite. It was a long journey for Pilot to enter the world, as his mother labored for 49 hours.


“I couldn’t have done it without the support of my team; the nurses here, my physician, my doula, my mom and husband. I knew the type of birth I wanted to have and everyone stuck to the plan,” said Rachel. "No one ever offered an epidural and I constantly felt empowered. The HOPE suite was the perfect environment for this type of birth.”


The HOPE suite offers several labor options, including a birthing tub, swing and stool. There is a fireplace in the room and mothers can bring their own music. Nurses help customize the room and the mother’s needs to help them feel at home.


“Even during the long labor, Rachel never lost her spirit. She was determined,” said Rachel’s nurse, Layla Willingham. “It was amazing."


It was important to Rachel that the birth of her son go according to her birth plan. If you’re interested in a natural birth or have specific requests during labor, consider the HOPE Suite at North Alabama Medical Center.
