National Public Radio

Nicole and Ben Veum had been waiting and waiting for their baby to arrive. Nicole’s due date came and went. Her doctor called her into the hospital – Sutter Santa Rosa Regional Hospital – to induce labor. That was Friday.

“So we were very excited at that point,” she said. “And then day after day after day, with not a whole lot of progress.”

They tried three different ways of inducing labor. Then, on the third day, with the third attempt, it started working.

“And then finally I am in a great rhythm,” she said. “We’re all excited. They’re talking about breaking my water.”
