During the height of the coronavirus crisis, Von Voigtlander Women’s Hospital helped nearly 500 families welcome babies into the world. The team worked to provide the best care to moms and their babies.

“We are so thankful for the care we received at Von Voigtlander. Every staff member made us feel nothing but safe,” says Kari Peitz, a patient who welcomed her son Gordon in March.

Although masks hid their faces, they couldn’t hide their happiness for these expanding families.

“They cared for us like family and, for a short time, we forgot about the pandemic. We are thankful for our experience at Von Voigtlander,” says Ashley Voss, who also welcomed her new baby, Caleb, during this time.

Hail to all the moms and their newest Little Victors this Mother’s Day!
