The Gamble's Twin Birth Story

Jun 6, 2019

Ron and Hope Gamble, Mother & Newborn, East Cooper Medical Center

“The birth of twin boys could have been a hectic time, but the doctors and nurse— there for every question, big or small—made our experience joyful and simple.”

When Ron and Hope Gamble learned they were expecting twin boys, the first-time parents were understandably apprehensive. They had a long list of questions, and at the top of that list was which hospital could be trusted to deliver their two precious babies.

The couple settled on East Cooper — and they’re very grateful they did.

“The birth of twin boys could have been a hectic time, but the doctors and nurses — there for every question, big or small — made our experience joyful and simple,” Ron says.

One of the most important things for the Gambles was that the staff took care of everything so Ron and Hope could focus all their attention on their newborns. The nurses and doctors provided a wealth of knowledge, giving them tips and insight, along with encouragement, every step of the way.

“Words cannot express the gratitude we have for the nurses,” Ron says. “Although we know there were many other babies born that day, we felt like our family had the complete attention of all of the nurses.”

Two nurses in particular made a big impression. From the moment the Gambles arrived, Robin gave her undivided attention to the family. When the parents navigated the twins’ feedings, crying fits and burps, Robin was there. And when it came time to bid farewell to the Gamble family, she was there with an encouraging smile.

“We bonded with her so much that we truly wanted to take her home with us!” Hope laughs.

Another nurse, Sandy, who works in the nursery, made sure the Gambles knew she was watching over their boys every night, so they felt comfortable and could get some much-needed rest.

“We will forever remember those days at East Cooper as the most important days of our lives,” says Ron. “They were the first days of the two best things to ever happen to us, and we both felt that they were being treated like they were the nurses’ own children.”
