Three generations of Oak Harbor locals have now been born at the same location — WhidbeyHealth Family Birthplace at Coupeville’s WhidbeyHealth Medical Center.

Elizabeth Adeline Pooler made her entrance into the world on May 1.

She is the third-generation female in her Oak Harbor family to be born on the same campus that was previously called Whidbey General Hospital.

Poolers mother, Mikaela Stahl, was born at Whidbey General Hospital on April 3, 1994, and her grandmother, Lori Stahl, was born there on Feb. 16, 1973.

Pooler’s birth went smoothly. She weighed 6.6 pounds and was 19- ¾ inches long.

She is the first child of Mikaela Stahl and Tony Pooler.

Mikaela said the main nurse for delivery and care was a great coach, who made her feel safe and in good hands.

“All the nurses offered assistance and advice to me throughout the whole delivery experience,” she said in a press release provided by the hospital.

“The overall experience was fantastic. I did not know what to expect for labor and delivery as a first-time mom. I appreciate how my midwife, Alicia Darr, and the nurses clearly explained to me how the birthing unit would take care of me.”

Her fiancé agreed.

“The nurses were excellent at maintaining pain level before, during and after delivery. Kathy was a great assistance on breastfeeding and demonstrating how to use best practices in nursing,” Pooler said.

Grandma Stahl was also impressed with her daughter and granddaughter’s care.

“I was impressed with Mikaela’s experience even though they were busy in OB,” Lori Stahl said.

“They always included Mikaela’s fiancée Tony, her friend Katie, and me when asking questions, and did not dismiss any of us when we had questions.”
