AdventHealth is home to many nurses, and two of them have crossed paths in a unique way. Veteran labor and delivery nurse Mary Kay Pozo has aided thousands of moms in the delivery process and one of those babies is now her colleague.

It makes me feel like a mother to her in a way, said Pozo, a veteran labor and delivery nurse. Its great to see her grown up.

In November 1993, Pozo helped deliver Ashley Gmez. Little did Pozo know that more than two decades later, Gmez would track her down at AdventHealth for Women, where they are both employed.

I started looking through my baby book, but it never crossed my mind that she would be right there, said Gmez, who began working as a nurse at AdventHealth for Women last year.

With the help of other nurses at the hospital, Gmez used one of her newborn photos to identify and meet the nurse who helped her come into the world decades ago.

Pozo said this is very exciting, noting its the first time her career something like this has happened. Its almost like you’re a mother, and she’s following your footsteps.
