baby!

Posted on February 3rd, 2007 by Thomas and Kymberlie.

after a six hour labor, in our home, elliot thomas quong-charles was born last night, february 2, at 9:05 pm. he’s 7 lbs, 1 oz, and has all his fingers and toes and beautiful dark hair. kymberlie kicked ass and needed no pain medication. there was a little scare, at the end, when the cord became quite entangled around elliot’s neck and shoulders, and his heart rate dropped drastically. but kymberlie and i never lost faith in our midwife, mary barnett, and her back-up midwife Vicky. they are both amazing, loving, and experienced advocates for woman and children, and we had 100% trust in them. thomas caught the baby as best he could while the midwives were untangling the cord. also, our friends suki and neil were invaluable during the process. suki gave much needed massages to kymberlie and neil went on food runs.
