Savannah Perkins and her husband, Jake Pace, welcomed their first child, Thea Dawn Pace, on April 22, 2021 at Cascade Valley Hospital. Arriving at 7 pounds, 15 ounces and 20.5 inches, Thea was immediately placed on her mother’s chest after birth, creating a memory Savannah cherishes.

“The most important moment for me was after my daughter was born and she was laid directly on my chest,” Savannah said. “I remember looking around the room and feeling like everyone there with me, the nurses, my midwife and my husband, had all just helped me accomplish the most important thing I would ever do in my life. We were all in it together.”

Thea was two weeks overdue and first-time mom Savannah was admittedly nervous and exhausted. The team and her midwife, Amy Loughlin, CNM, offered amazing support.

“From the moment we walked into the hospital to the moment we walked out with our daughter, I felt like I was surrounded by family. Everyone was welcoming and encouraging,” she said. “Everyone helped me feel like I was in control of what was going on and empowered me in every decision.”

Since Thea arrived, the family has enjoyed some travels and special time together.

“Thea has been the best travel buddy. We have traveled to Utah, Arizona and Hawaii since she was born and she is such a trooper,” Savannah said. “She is also such a good sleeper which has really helped me catch up on sleep. Recovery for me has been going well, I am just taking it slow and soaking up all of the baby cuddles.”
