Amanda (matey) had her baby boy, Jack Valentine, this morning at 5:57. He was three and a half weeks early, so it was a surpise, but he's perfectly fine. He's 5 pounds, 12 ounces. I just left the hospital. I'm an IRL friend of Amanda's, and she asked that I let you ladies know her great news. He wasn't too interested in nursing after the birth, and they haven't let her see him yet since they took him away for his bath, because he's not warm enough yet. Whatever.
Labor and delivery went wonderfully. She had no drugs. She only had to push for about three minutes before her little guy came out. I'm sure she'll post more details later.

Mama to two lovely boys and a new baby due mid-May 2011

Congrats! I hope they bring him back soon. I noticed your location and I had a very good friend who had a hard time w/ the staff in one of the Spfd. hospitals, they had him in NICU when he really didn't need it (full term baby). I really hope he's back nursing w/ mama soon!

Welcome, Baby Jack!!!

I know ... I can't believe the whole "warm" thing. What's warmer than right next to mama's breast? Argghhh.
Amanda was getting really frustrated after four hours and no baby.

Congratulations!!!!

Silly hospitals, don't they know that a warm blanket and mamas chest is the best way to warm a babe?
