“Miracle of Birth”

At 3:00 a.m. today, I was at the hospital delivering a healthy baby girl for a young family. I did not mind that I was awake at that hour, or that it was my own birthday. In fact, I still get excited to have the opportunity of helping out with God’s “miracle of birth”, even after 1,000 deliveries. It’s one of the many reasons that I enjoy being a Family Physician.

After the delivery of the 6 lb. l2 oz. baby girl, and as I was finishing the paperwork, the nurses were admitting a lady who had had no prenatal care, and was ready to deliver. So, guess what, I delivered a second “miracle of birth” healthy baby girl in the early morning of my birthday. Coincidentally she also weighed 6 lb. l2 oz.
