Upon my arrival at the hospital, 13 hours after the induction began, sweet sounds of a flute filled the room. The soft glow of a tiny lit tree in the corner and candles placed perfectly around the room gave a feeling of calm. Labor was progressing well and continued through the night. A few moments of drama kept the adrenaline flowing. What an amazing team, an adoring and very attentive dad, anxious grandparents, a remarkable team of nurses, a wonderful doctor and a loving mom who gave it her all and more. After 36 hours of intense, constant labor, 3 hours of which were pushing … a beautiful little boy made his way in to this world.
Welcome, sweet, Orion.
