It was the best experience of my life…..I was so excited when she asked me and was even more excited when the birth happened….my first baby had no complications and everything went great…..she and her fiance were quite happy that I was there for them….I still cant stop smiling cause if you remember in the training I was the one who said I didnt want to see from the waist down or be the catcher lol….I was able to see the baby come out from where I was standing and supporting her…what an amazing experience…I wasnt even quesy at all.
