11 pounds 12 ounces. Born at home the old-fashioned way. No drugs. No 'emergency' c-section. Mom, who is 5'1, just got it done. Yes, she pushed for 2 hours to birth baby B, but she was all smiles and so very proud of herself when the job was done. Dr. Z. did an incredible job of helping baby get out. It is an honor and a blessing to be able to work and learn from him. But back to baby. Did I mention that 'noggin in 15 inches....oh and baby is 23.5 inches long. This was #591 births for me and the biggest, longest baby I've seen in my 10 years of helping moms deliver at home.
