Two weeks on from the birth of her baby daughter Reese, Lacie Hietalati is heading back to her healthcare center. Taking her child in for a routine checkup, the mom naturally hopes to hear that everything is as it should be. But during her visit, she encounters something unexpected. Dr. Erik Bostrom is there to greet Hietalati – and he has something for her.
Bostrom is a family medicine doctor at the Riverwood Healthcare Center in Aitkin, Minnesota. He treats people of all ages, but he also has to deliver babies from time to time. Regarding this latter responsibility, he told Star Tribune in December 2018, “It’s a really cool part of medicine.”
