Gian Carl... once again!

15 minutes before shift change, one of my classmates came to get me at the house saying that there was a woman pushing. I was first up so i got my stuff and went over quick. I arrive in just enough time to don gloves and two pushes later the baby was born. There was a bit of mass confusion with all the midwives in the room but the dust settled some and all was quiet.

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!
