Welcoming Coral Raen

My niece Taylor labored for 8 straight weeks, some of it pretty uncomfortable.  However she made no progress in the actual dilatation or moving toward “Active Labor”.  Monday morning at 1am she was admitted into the hospital to induce at 41 weeks.  Her water broke about 11am.  We were still in LA and planning to go out in a couple hours but when her water broke we headed out.  Little did we know that it would be twelve more hours.

Baby Coral was born at 10:58 PM, 20 inches long and 8lbs 15 oz.


Just after the epidural when things were looking better


She did good.
