Jovanna's Story

My husband and I came to Banner Desert on June 2, 2011, to prepare for a miscarriage at 15 weeks gestation.

Having been through a number of losses previous to this, I was prepared for the trying time but still very emotional. The staff was very understanding and were very helpful throughtout the whole process.

They gave my husband and I all the information we could have ever wanted to know about what we were going through. We were given a beautiful box full of precious items for us to keep and information packets for us to look through.

The nurse who was with us, Kimberly, was the most passionate about her job and was the best nurse I have ever had. She took extra special care of us during our stay, and gave us all the assistance we needed.

After our baby boy was born, we were given options about what we could do with his remains. While we were deciding and I was recouping, they staff took his body and had pictures taken, made a mold of his hands and feet, and were able to capture his hand and footprints on our keepsake birthing card. It was the most beautiful and touching display of sentiment a parent could ever hope for in this type of situation.

I will forever be thankful to Kimberly, and the other staff members, for making that experience for me and my husband the most pleasant in the most unpleasant of circumstances.
