"Yes, that's right...Oh she's crowning, get the gloves," she yelled at the nurse.
I pushed again.
"Quick, hurry," she yelled louder and more frantically as the baby's whole head came out.
I pushed again, and she exclaimed, "Oh Wow, she's here!"
Later she thanked me saying, "I haven't caught a baby with my bare hands in years." I was just thankful it was all over. She congratulated me and told me I was really good at birthing babies saying, "The next one will be easy-peasy."
I told her abruptly, "just because I'm good at something, doesn't mean I want to do it again."
And there was our Mayzie, all 8 pounds 9 ounces of her.
