Happy Birthday Charlotte – McKay Dee Birth Story!
That moment you get the call you’ve been expecting your heart begins to pump.
For weeks prior to this day, I take my phone with me everywhere. As the due date draws even closer, I sleep with my phone right near my pillow. My nerves start to kick in causing me to worry that the call will come when I’m out of town or when I’m in the middle of a session. This must be what it feels like to be a doctor! I have seen enough births that I tell my families that I have the quick version of a medical degree!
Kasi texted me on a Sunday right as I had walked in the door from church. Today is the day! I gathered my gear and jumped in the car. I strive to head off to the hospital when mom is dilated to a 5 and Kasi already was!
When I entered the hospital room, I felt like I was being welcomed as family. The room was bright and happy. Kasi and Kevin were in high spirits. They were looking forward to welcoming baby Charlie into their beautiful family!
