How exciting grandma!! Bet you were glad to hear that first cry!! Congratulations, he is a cutie. Enjoy him!
How exciting! I would have been freaked out for sure. All your grandchildren will be special to you, but this one will have a special connection to you.
I'm so sorry, Viola!
Carolyn, I'm glad to hear you came through it ok. I'll keep you in my prayers!
You delivered him? Wow, girl!
Wow! My daughter is looking for a part time midwife at her Birthing Center, Do you want her email addy to send her your resume? Great job and beautiful baby.
Lol. I tell you, she started labor about 7am and texted the midwife “I’m in labor”. She texted back “let me know when you’re at 3-5 minutes apart for 1hour”
well we were using the iPhone baby app. That records your contractions and she was all over the map with times etc. so at 12:00 she said text her it’s time now. And then within 5 minutes said mom My body is pushing and I can’t stop it. So I called the midwife and said where are you he’s coming and she said she was 25 minutes out. I said he’s crowning and laid the phone down. All she could do is yell affirmations. (We never really heard her).
shelley, in the meantime after about 7:30 everything was ready and I was waiting for her to come to my room (where she birthed in my big garden tub) and so I googled “emergency deliveries” and read about it just to kill time.
It of course didn’t prepare me enough, but we gotter done. All of you are so right I do need to write it all down. I will today while so vivid in my mind.
Wow - what an amazing experience - but scary too. I'm so glad it turned out well. Your new little grandson is adorable. Congrats Grandma!
Both of your grandchildren are just adorable!
When I was 16, I worked in a small hospital in Wewoka, OK where I lived. Over a couple of summers, I got to be the delivery room and saw seven babies born (one was named after me and a nurse!).
My hat is certainly off to you, Grandma. What a blessing that you were there and able to let your instincts kick in. I don't think I could do it.
