I helped deliver a baby!!! (kinda)
Last week the family travelled to Cincinnati so I could be there when my brothers first baby was born.I went to the hospital bright and early with the family.We really had a great day.Well,I knew when I got there I would get to be in the room when he was born,but I had no idea that I would get to HELP!!! My brother,it turns out is very squeamish,and he didnt want to be "down there" when the baby was born.I was jokingly telling the ob that I could help him deliver the baby,since I have so much "experience". (lol) Anyway,I got to actually do it! I can honestly say,short of giving birth to my own babies,it was the most incredible experience of my life.
The Doc delivered the babies head and shoulders,and I got to finish (with his help of course) Again,it was amazing.
