My daughter gave birth May 2 to the most beautiful twin girls ever. Her water began leaking, with intermitten gushes around 7pm May 1st, and she started having to pay attention to her contractions (Bradley method relaxation) at about 2am. They were born in the OR, but her birthing room bed was simply moved in there. Her husband stood on one side of the bed, and I stood on the other. After 5 minutes of pushing Payton (5lbs 11oz) was born at 12:54pm, and Riley (5lbs 14oz) was born at 1pm. No tearing at all, and they are both completely healthy, and nursing like little piggies.
Everyone is very happy about the whole experience!
Thank you everyone for all your support during our time of worry and confusion.
