"With my mother being a member of the Paoli Hospital Auxiliary, I feel
like even before she was born, Grace, was a Paoli Hospital baby all the
way – we’re proud of that!"
Lyndsey Cappelli and her husband Nicholas of Coatesville tried for two
years to become pregnant through various fertility treatments. Lyndsey
explains that her faith helped them see things through, delivering their
most prized possession, their six-month-old daughter Grace.
“Being Buddhist helped me be accepting about the fertility process,”
said Lyndsey. “I didn’t take things personally. It was a puzzle my
husband and I had to figure out together.”
Lyndsey visited with Michael Glassner, M.D. of Main Line Fertility. Dr.
Glassner quickly diagnosed Lyndsey with polycystic ovarian syndrome, a
hormone imbalance that causes changes in a woman’s menstrual cycle.
“After treatment and close monitoring, my cycles became consistent and
eventually I became pregnant,” said Lyndsey. “Dr. Glassner and the staff
at Main Line Fertility really treated us well – our experience was
On the night of Thursday, September 1, 2011, Lyndsey’s water broke and
they rushed to Paoli Hospital. “My husband drove us to Paoli – the
maternity staff knew we were coming and we immediately checked in to the
Maternity Unit. One of our reasons why we chose Paoli Hospital to
deliver our baby was because the maternity unit was close to home
offering private, labor, delivery, and recovery rooms.”
The next morning, Anne Bussard, M.D., of Main Line OB/GYN Associates,
PC, delivered their baby girl, Grace. “The whole experience went by so
quickly, the hours seemed like minutes, really. The best part was that I
could deliver right in my own private room and not be moved anywhere
Lyndsey describes her care. “The maternity nurses and pediatrician that
took care of us, including Dr. Bussard, are such special people,” said
Lyndsey. “We will recommend Paoli Hospital’s Maternity Unit to anyone we
know that is expecting a baby.”
