Viri's Birth / by Brooke Porter

Welcome to the world little baby boy! Born near the summer solstice the days were long and Viri had been laboring for hours with her little one. But as the day came to a close little baby boy entered the world (the family still hadn't chosen a name). Miles away Viri's cousin had just given birth as well and excitement filled the room. Viri's mother congratulated her over the phone in Spanish, admiring her strength and resilience of choosing to have a natural birth. In the meantime the new father got his first lesson on how to swaddle his son. After a long long day Viri could now relax holding her precious newborn near her heart.
