Baby Alex arrived on a Monday afternoon, after a relatively quick and easy labor and delivery. He was full term, at 39 weeks 2 days, and I’m proud to say there were absolutely no complications. As soon as he was born, he was placed on my chest, and that’s where he stayed for over an hour. The hospital I delivered at makes a point to delay examining and weighing babies born, that way the first hour or so of life is an easier transition and less stressful for the baby. He was just wiped down a bit, and then he laid on my chest and cuddled with me while I breastfed him. My doctor and nurse took care of me, then everyone left the room to allow Edison and I time with our newborn. It was a wonderful experience.
