Flemming family births a bit of humankindness at St. Luke’s Health–Sugar Land Hospital


December 22, 2021 Posted in: Blogs , English , Videos

This is a story of overwhelming the darkness in one’s life with blinding light and humankindness. At 29 weeks of pregnancy, Anna Flemming and her husband experienced a loss after discovering that their daughter’s heart had stopped beating. They came to St. Luke’s Health–Sugar Land Hospital to deliver their daughter, Paige, and to hold her on this side of eternity. 

Every year since, in honor of Paige, Anna and her family have come back to visit the nurses of the Labor & Delivery department who showed her humankindness and strength during this loss. Anna gives a little humankindness of her own by bringing a “Blessing Basket” filled with gifts and goodies for a baby girl to provide for a family that needs it most.

Jennifer Oglesby, Labor & Delivery nurse at St. Luke’s Health–Sugar Land Hospital, speaks on the light that Anna brings.

“Anna is a story and a woman that I will remember forever. It’s hard to lose a baby, and it’s hard to lose it with somebody that you have grown to love. She just had such peace with it after she dealt with the loss.”

This story came full circle when Anna and her husband welcomed their son, Matthew, in the very same room at St. Luke’s Health–Sugar Land Hospital that they held Paige in. And adding to this beautiful moment, the family was coincidentally escorted from the hospital by a nurse named Paige. Anna said, “It was a little wink from God to be able to walk out with a Paige and a Matthew that day.”
