Meet one of our Promise Babies : Isabella!

WELCOME Isabella Rose 

Isabella is the daughter of Julius and Raya Hopp 
of Moville, IA

Here are her stats! 

• Born: December 22, 2019 at 12:41am
• Weight: 7 lbs, 12 oz
• Length: 22 in

Certified nurse midwife Belinda Lassen of Promise Community Health Center of Sioux Center, IA, provided the prenatal care for the family throughout the pregnancy and attended the home birth. Not only did Belinda help deliver this baby girl but also delivered her dad as well!  

Isabella was welcomed into the family by her big brother Asa and grandparents Scott and Meryann Beekner and Brad and Megan Hopp. 

Julius and Raya loved doing a home birth. Getting to be in the comfort of their own home and doing things the way they wanted to, as well as only having a couple of people around during the labor and delivery is what they loved the most. Raya loved having care from Belinda, her midwife because she is extremely knowledgable and she recommended natural ways of doing things. The Hopp's were able to contact the Promise team so quickly and with ease for the birth and when they have questions or concerns. Raya and Julius highly recommend Promise and having a home birth!
