In this video, Abuid Rivera shares the story of a normal day taking a tragic turn. He describes how the presence of an Ob Hospitalist Group (OBHG) OB/GYN hospitalist at Halifax Health made the difference between possibly losing his wife and newborn daughter and sharing this Christmas with his miracle family.
After an ordinary day, Rivera’s pregnant wife awoke at 2:00 AM, within moments he realized something wasn’t quite right. She was cold and clammy and her lips were white. He called his wife’s OB/GYN, Dr. Pamela Carbiener who instructed him to take his wife directly to Halifax Health Medical Center in Daytona Beach, Florida. Dr. Carbiener left immediately to meet her patient there.
