Read about the childbirth experiences that Western New Yorkers have had at Sisters Hospital and Mercy Hospital.

Sisters Hospital

I gave birth to my first child here 9 years ago, and I absolutely loved it.

The staff was very nice and knowledgeable. They answered all of my questions and made sure that we were both well cared for. I'll be back in the next few weeks with my second, and I know that we're in very good hands at Sisters of Charity Hospital!

I just want to sincerely thank all of the nurses at Sisters Hospital for the wonderful care I received when I delivered my son in January.

What a great team of nurses and midwifes, especially my nurse Kathy Gardner. She held my hands the entire time and reassured me that everything was going to be ok! It was so nice to have a nurse who cared about her patient and was focused on making me as comfortable as possible.

Even though it was my second child, I was still scared, but with her help and guidance, I was at ease. She kept me as calm as possible and really made delivery as pain free as possible. My husband and I really feel blessed to have had such a wonderful nurse!

Even after my son was born, she continuously came in to check up on me and my husband to make sure we didn’t need anything. I had both of my children at Sisters, and both times my experiences were absolutely wonderful! The nurses are so knowledgeable and really are there to educate their patients. We are all so lucky to have such a wonderful hospital in Buffalo.

Mercy Hospital

From the time I was admitted until the time I delivered, the staff in Labor and Delivery exceeded my expectations.

Not only did they stay by my side and make me comfortable, but they helped me to overcome my fears and put my mind at ease that I could really do this!

Dr. Aronica is an amazing OB and I'm so glad she was my doctor throughout the last 5 weeks of my pregnancy. I got lucky because she administered my c-section after 27 hours of labor!

Kudos to everyone in the NICU who monitored my daughter, and to every nurse and doctor who took care of me while I was there. I am beyond grateful! Thank you from the bottom of my heart!

I was naturally apprehensive about giving birth to our first child.

My experience at Mercy could not have been better. Our labor and delivery nurse, Kathy, was absolutely amazing. She catered to our every need and possessed the perfect combination of sincerity, compassion, support and encouragement. I don't know if I could have been as successful if it weren't for her. My husband and I cannot thank her enough!

The nurses and support staff who took care of us while I was recovering were amazing as well. My new baby and I were so well cared for, it was difficult to leave. I would recommend Mercy to anyone without hesitation. It was a wonderful experience!

My wife, Dawn, gave birth to our son Nicholas on April 30, 2014 at Mercy. We live out of town and very late in the pregnancy, we decided to switch doctors and hospitals where we would deliver. I can honestly and confidentially say that this was the best decision my wife and I have made!

The facility and care that Mercy Hospital gave Dawn, myself and Nicholas was nothing short of phenomenal. From admission to discharge, we were blown away by the care, respect and knowledge that we received from each and every staff member we came in to contact with.

We will never be able to express our thanks and appreciation to all staff, but we wanted to acknowledge some staff that we are forever thankful for:

Julie, Jamie, Jennifer (midwife), pediatrician (on site), Kristen, Kristy (midwife), Joan, Debbie, Keller, Mary Ann, lactation consultant with short blond curly hair, Dr. Hage, and Joe.

Again, thank you all so much for everything!

My doctor didn't arrive on time, and I was having a natural birth. The women who delivered my daughter helped me through my contractions, and they delivered my baby.

it was a good experience for me. The nurses in recovery were so helpful and kind. They gave me things to help with the pain and helped me into bed. They helped with everything! It was a great time for me and my family.

I wanted a home birth, but my husband wanted to go to the hospital, and I'm glad we did – best hospital I've ever been to.

Even after I was discharged, they sent me home with a nurse who was caring and made sure I was feeling okay and that my daughter was okay.

I could go on and on about how great my stay was there and how helpful and friendly the nurses were, but I'd end up sitting here for hours writing! Just amazing.

I will be coming to Mercy Hospital for any of my hospital needs, and I live an hour away. There's a hospital down the street from me, but they couldn't top Mercy if they tried. I'd drive 5 hours to go to Mercy, it's that good!

Thank you so much for your hospitality, caring, help, and everything else. The people here really do care about the paitents!

Thank you again so much. It couldn't have been any better!

In 2006, my son was born on his actual birth date but was having issues with his temperature regulating.

The nurses in Mercy Hospital's NICU were wonderful. They let me come in and sit with him and helped me to walk around with him.

When my daughter was born in 2010, the care was wonderful again. I was scared because she was born a month early, but the nurses on the floor really supported me through the process.
