This is her first baby so only pushing for 9 mins is pretty fantastic!
The first part of the story..... I found out later on that Mary Joy and Orlando have been married for four years and have been praying for a child all this time. They were not able to get pregnant for the longest time, so when they found out the good news they were overjoyed and a bit worried. The looks on their faces when they saw their little girl was so tender.... so loving! She is their little angel! Their answer to prayer!
She got her first bath from her father, Orlando!

She labored fairly well but because she refused to rest the night before, was exhausted when it came time to push. I had to insert an IV. She tried to push too soon as well which made her cervix swell. She breathed through contractions but ultimately my supervisor chose to push her anterior lip back. Little Dhionne Kate was born 40 minutes later. All in all, she was at the clinic for over 12 hours. But looking back on it, i'm glad that i got to walk through it with her.

When I asked her his name she smiled and said 'Gian Carl'. This is the second baby this month to be named Gian Carl! I asked my supervisors where this name is from and they told me that it's the name of a handsome Filipino TV star. The best part is. I looked in the birth book and there have been 5 Gian Carls born this year!
