Adler Greg Morris was born at 5:28 a.m. on Jan. 1, 2012.
Cheyanne Morris had her fourth boy on New Year’s Day. He was the first baby born in Woodbury in 2012, and it was the first time Morris delivered using a water birth. When Morris had her three other children, she used pain medication during delivery, “which made me feel a little groggy and not always in the moment.” Morris spoke with her HealthEast midwives, who suggested she try a water birth. She also heard from her sister-in-law, who had a great experience giving birth at Woodwinds Health Campus in Woodbury. Now, her new son, Adler Greg Morris, is the first baby of 2012 for Woodbury. “We were thrilled,” Morris said of having the city's first baby of the year. “We thought that was great. We were excited about having a New Year baby in …

The Nigerian couple had a daughter at Woodwinds four years ago and recently returned to Minnesota for the birth of their third child.
Woodwinds Health Campus often draws pregnant mothers from outside Woodbury to its renowned birth center. One family’s trip, however, was a little farther. Adefolagu and Oluwole Oyejobi are from Nigeria, and recently flew to Minnesota just so their third child, Maxim, could be born at Woodwinds. They had their second child, Manuela, at Woodwinds in 2007. The couple has family members who live in Oakdale, and a stateside visit coincided with her birth. Adefolagu and Oluwole were impressed by their first trip to Woodwinds, and after a birth in their native country went wrong and the baby died, they decided to come back to Woodbury when she got pregnant again. Oluwole did not place blame on the Nigerian doctors—whom he called capable and …

The mother was hoping to have a water birth at the Woodbury hospital. She didn’t quite make it.
Woodwinds Hospital is well known for its birth center. Turns out, Elisabeth Chikeles didn’t need it. The 25-year-old had planned on having her baby at the Woodbury facility because of the doulas there and the fact that she wanted a water birth. Instead, the baby came a bit early—and on July 1 Chikeles had it in the back seat of her mother’s car at the emergency room entrance of Woodwinds. Ellaine Olive was born at about 5 a.m. and weighed 8 pounds, 11 ounces. She is happy and healthy. Chikeles, of Waite Park, was staying with her parents in Andover—closer to her husband Kevin, who is in Ft. McCoy, Wis., set to be deployed with the military. He has since seen the baby. When told the story of his second daughter’s birth, Kevin’s reaction was…
