Susanna Grace Pope Birth Announcement

On October 31, 2013 at 2:45 p.m., Kendra voxed T. Pope to say that she had a pretty painful contraction. We waited until the contractions progressed. It was a dark and stormy Halloween evening when we set out for the hospital at around 5:30 p.m. We arrived at the hospital at around 6:10 p.m. The midwife Cindy checked Kendra and found her to be 5 centimeters at around 6:35 p.m. The nurse Yolanda Siegel checked Kendra again around 7:15 p.m. at Kendra’s request/feeling the need to push and she had progressed to 8 or 9 centimeters. At that point, Kendra received Nubain and the midwife came in to break her water at 7:32 p.m. At 7:51 p.m. in 3 pushes, Kendra delivered Susanna Grace Pope who was 9 lbs. 8 oz. and 21½  inches long. She is gorgeous, has a decent amount of hair and is indeed a bundle of joy. Mommy and baby Susanna Grace are home. Thank you all for praying!
