Mommy & Me Spotlight: Leola and Baby Aya

“I’m from San Bernardino, CA. My daughter is Aya Bivens. She is 10 months. My pregnancy was great, no morning sickness. I had normal cravings, nothing outrageous. I did, however, crave some things I normally wouldn’t eat often. I was induced at 41 weeks.I received an epidural and delivered Aya vaginally. I was in labor for 16 hours. Aya was born on November 27th at 8:49 AM, 20.75 inches long and weighing 8 pounds and 6 ounces.

I joined BIH to gain more knowledge about babies similar to my baby and to gain insight on becoming a mother. The program has exceeded my expectations. The instructors were phenomenal women who brought so much information to the meetings and kept it fun and entertaining. The special guests were always friendly and informative.
As far as a future goal, I want to obtain a B.S. degree in public health.”
