Apologies for those who missed out on last night’s email, here’s the gist:
As you may have guessed from the subject, we’ve got a new member of our family, Natalie Jane Corin, born this afternoon after a six and a half hour labour (not counting the two weeks spent in the hospital beforehand). She weighed 2.135kg (google tells me that’s 4.7 pounds). She was born at about 36.5 weeks, so it is not surprising that she’s on the small side, but she’s healthy and we’re sure she’ll do well. Megan is doing well also and we expect that both will not spend long in hospital.
Visiting is quite limited as Nat is in the special care baby unit at North Shore Hospital. So probably best to give us a few days and arrange to visit at home.
