Couple's Corner--Labor,Delivery and Bring Home Baby

--A midwife SIL Mihoko and our bundle of joy, Wakaba---

I was finally pregnant after a year of getting married and everytime I visited my Ob&Gyn, my husband is always there from day 1 to take a lil pip on my tummy and loves to get involved in pre-natal . He's excited to see the ultrasound machine scanning our child and to check if everythings ok with her. My husband and my PIL decided to let my birth experience be at a big hospital where my SIL work to make me feel comfortable.
I was in mixed emotion of course coz it'll be my first time to give birth in Japan but my SIL ( a midwife at the hospital that I'm in and ON DUTY ) was very supportive of me. When I felt pain contractions my SIL gave me some IE's--- well, I wasn't ashamed of giving her a "live show" of me ( lol! ) at the labor and delivery room ( I didn't know the hiya word means that time lol!) but she's very professional and she's doing her job well. Here in Japan, the person will be delivering your child is a midwife. Doctors are on-hand in case there are any complications. The delivery wasn't complicated ( thanks God ) and was smooth--just after a few pushes, Wakaba came! ^_^ I was all supported with good nurses, my SIL, my husband ( holding my hands even though I was whiny at all times and very demanding ), my MIL, and when I looked at the corner, my other SIL Taiko was there--I didn't noticed that she was inside the delivery room, I thought all the way that she'll passed out if she sees me but she was amazed by my giving birth experience and started calling Wakaba as her child soon after my delivery! 私の若葉ちゃん だて! ^_^)
Just like any other Japanese women here in Japan that they go to their parents place for awhile to take a rest with all the work after the delivery, we decided to bring home the baby at my PIL's place first and stayed there for a month before going back to our apartment. I'm really thankful to my MIL with all the moral support, for taking care of the baby and for doing all the household chores for me. 私は 幸せものです!おかさん、ありがとう!
