Miracle Baby

My cousin and his wife had a baby boy today. She went through 36 hours of labor and ended up needing a c-section because she had developed a fever, which made them believe she had an infection. Turned out it was a lifesaver for the baby. He had the umbilical cord wrapped around his neck 3 times :eek: and he was hypoglycemic and there was meconium in the fluid. Baby is apparently doing fine now, but that could have been very scary. They said had she pushed on her own it would have killed the baby. So thankful they are all okay.

Glad all is well now. Scary to think of what could have been but what matters is that mom and baby are well.
