My unforgettable dream and joy came with the birth of my baby girl. The new parents, grandparents, aunts and uncles were all filled with joy and excitement at the thought of welcoming the new baby into the world. The first little smile, the first tears shed, and the first baby’s smile captured our hearts. Childbirth is not without its challenges, but it is surely one of life’s most rewarding events. My pregnancy was very challenging. Weekly visits to the doctor. My husband was allowed in the delivery room to watch and coach me during the birthing process. A beautiful delivery. We laughed and talked throughout the process. The epidural was not funny!, but made the delivery easy and very little pain.
