Baptist Hospital Nurses Discover Uncommon Bond


by Jeff Tang

NASHVILLE, Tenn. - Sometimes, things in life come full circle. The staff of the Baptist Hospital's Labor and Delivery Unit said they believe that, after two nurses uncovered a remarkable coincidence more than 24 years in the making.

Susie Cox has nearly three decades of experience. In that time, she has helped deliver more than 10 thousand babies.

"There's just little miracles every day," said Susie.

Amy Satterfield wasn't even alive when Susie started as a nurse. But for as long as she can remember, Amy wanted to be a nurse.

Born at Baptist Hospital herself, she now finds herself working there 24 years later and training with one of the best.

One day, the two were talking, and Amy wondered, who helped deliver her on that summer day in 1986? Not surprisingly, it was Susie.

The proof is in pictures- a newborn Amy, and nurse Suzie complete with curly bangs and the perm.

"I thought, what are the chances? What are the chances? It was 24 years ago. And think of all the babies she's delivered," said Satterfield.

Call it a coincidence-- or perhaps, call it destiny.

"Definitely, it seals the deal, maybe from that day- this is where I'm supposed to be. Where I'm meant to be," Satterfield said. "I hope I can be as good of a nurse as she is and someday deliver ten thousand babies myself- or more. That's my goal."

Amy will continue training with Susie for another few days. It's a process called precepting. After that, she'll head out on her own as a full fledged nurse.

Baptist Hospital delivers seven thousand babies each year in the mid-state-- more than any other hospital in Nashville.
