The Story of My Birth…

By Wilma Spaulding

I was born at St. Mary’s Hospital when it was still across from Deaconess Hospital close by the St. Anthony Church off Columbia Street now called Deaconess Midtown Hospital! I told the story of the three hospitals that were all close together before St. Mary’s moved to the new Ascension St. Vincent on Washington Avenue. And of course, Welborn Hospital is now closed down! Mother had to get to a hospital for all of us 5 kids because she would go into labor and almost immediately deliver a child!
She took whatever hospital she could get in during those days!
