Baby #21 Cristine Jean

Shirley was a girl I did several prenatals on over the last few months. She is adorable and I always liked her a lot, but I didn't take her as a continuity.

But one night as I was working night shift in she walks. But she was in early labor and a different midwife was up first. She was sent home only to return several hours later ready to push. It was quite the birth. She was pushing the same time as another labor. They were born less than 10 minutes apart, and that was only because i asked her to wait until my supervisor could be there. She tried to wait... she really did, but I ended up being the only one in her room other than her husband. My supervisor wasn't far away though...
