Anita and Alan and Cathy (Alan’s mom) visit Chris and Jenny Parker in the hospital ~2 days after the birth of Emmalynn Parker.
This was a “scary” birth story. After 7-8 hours of early/active labor, everything normal and in the Hospital… the baby monitor showed significantly decreasing heartrate. Chris hit the “call nurse” button about the same time as 4 nurses ran into the room and moved Jenny around. The changed position got the heartrate up some, but not enough… so an emergency cessarian was preformed. Apparently all went well – 10 fingers, 10 toes, healthy mom.
It severed as a good reminder of why we want to be at the hospital for Anita and me. We’ve been exposed to a lot of “hospital bad” stories from Bradley classes… nice to see why western medicine is useful.
