Dr. Aron Delivers Little Bundle of Joy
June 21, 2021
Dr. Barry Aron of Fauquier Health OB/GYN & Midwifery serves the communities of Warrenton and Gainesville. Dr. Aron sees patients at his two locations – 253 Veterans Drive, Suite 210 in Warrenton, Virginia and 7915 Lake Manassas Drive, Suite 101, Gainesville, Virginia.
In the afternoon of March 28, 2021, at 12:33pm, Dr. Aron delivered sweet little Connor Jones seven weeks earlier than expected. He was the third child, and first C-section, for parents Rachel and Greg Jones of Prince William County, Virginia. The mother, Rachel, is a licensed veterinary technician at Banfield Pet Hospital and the father, Greg, works in IT. In addition to Connor, they also have two other children, daughter Hannah and son Caleb.
Rachel had a pretty normal pregnancy, even though the COVID-19 pandemic create a worrisome atmosphere. The pandemic added twists and turns, especially considering Rachel had to attend most doctor’s visits alone, due to limited visitation. When determining where to deliver, Fauquier Health Family Birthing Center offered them the small town hospital feel they were seeking. Having a Level II Newborn Intensive Care Unit (NICU) was an added bonus.
Throughout Rachel’s pregnancy, she saw her OB/GYN provider, Dr. Aron, on several occasions and commented that he treated them with the utmost consideration and respect. They did not feel rushed and commented that “Dr. Aron, truly listens to his patients.” Rachel commented on his demeanor as being a very patient-focused doctor and made sure there were no questions left unanswered.
Sweet little Connor Jones, wrapped in a blanket, made his debut seven weeks early via an emergency C-section birth at 12:33pm, weighing 5 pounds 3 ounces, and measured 17 inches in length. Rachel commented on Dr. Aron’s calm and soothing demeanor, “When we went in for the C-section, we were not alarmed. Dr. Aron kept us calm.” She also added, “His great level of surgical expertise is obvious. Healing has been surprisingly easy from the C-section with very minimal scaring. I was able to move around better than expected.”
Since Connor ended up being born seven weeks early, he received care in the NICU for about three weeks before he was released and discharged home. Rachel and Greg felt their little boy was safely cared for in the NICU and that the staff worked to keep them informed and educated about their son at all times.
“The staff in the Family Birthing Center were by far the greatest people on Earth,” commented Rachel. “The nursing staff in the NICU went above and beyond. I had so much less anxiety because I knew Connor was being well taken care of. There was never any concern that he wasn’t getting top level care.”
Conner’s parents had a sparkle in their eyes the day they left with their baby boy – and could not wait to re-unite him with his siblings and family.
