After finding out, at nearly 41 weeks pregnant, that Jack was not in ideal positioning for a natural birth, Danny and I, along with my Doctor, decided that the safest option for delivery was a c section. Although our c section was scheduled, things did not go as expected. My doctor had a very difficult time delivering Jack. It took much longer than expected. Jack's cord was wrapped twice around his neck, something we nor my doctor were aware of. Once he was delivered and suctioned he did not begin breathing on his own right away. Luckily the NICU team was right there able to rush in. They were able to get him breathing in about a minute, the longest minute of my life. Here are some photos from Jack's delivery, some are graphic, but they tell a story that I will never forget and cannot do justice in words.
Jack Hudson is doing wonderfully! He was born at 9:24am on February 17th at 21 inches and 7 lbs 12 oz. He is now over 8 lbs and 21.5 inches. We are so excited to watch this little man grow and could not be more thankful for our amazing and healthy baby boy!
