    My Little Sister

    I've seen plenty of babies, but I mostly remember my sister, who is twelve years my junior.  My mom had her seven weeks premature and she was only 4 lbs 12 oz when she was born.  She was so little.  She's definitely caught up though.  She's so tall!!! ...

    From age 10, I was always helping to deliver kittens! My mother use to breed them and then sell them to a pet shop. Heehee! But she was too squeamish for the bloody parts of it, so I stepped in and took over. I was Dr. Dani! =p I was always happy, when the birth was over...

    "here, Take The Baby."

    My mom's friend went into labour.  They are relatively new to the country, coming from Africa, and wanted my mom and I to be there with them.  After 22 hours of labour the doctor decided it was time for a C-section.  The baby was just too big to come out naturally.  They took...

     My dog and my parents' dog had two puppies. The first puppy was breached so we had to take the mom to the vet. We were worried that all three of them wouldn't survive but they did! Have you ever seen chihuahua puppies? They are only a couple inches long and possibly the...

    Most Amazing Moment of My Life

    I was able to hold my nephew just moments after he was born.  The hospital let the family in and he was passed around to each of us.  Knowing that we had all waited so long for this beautiful baby to arrive and having the honor of holding him just minutes after he was...

    Birth Defect

    I used to have pet mice and had always been warned never to watch them giving birth.  One morning, I woke to find Mama Mouse giving birth to her litter.  Unfortunately, she sensed my presence and stopped in the middle of giving birth to her second or third baby. ...

    Lucky's Babies...

    I used to work nights in a factory... It was hard work, and when I did have a night off, I often times had to take advantage of as much sleep as I could get... But, one such night, my cat, Lucky, decided she was going to have her kittens. She mewled and mewled, led me around...

    My Brother!

    When I was 5 I saw my brother being born. He was born at home and so was I, It would be one of the most amazing things I have ever seen. I would love to have a home birth one day, but I am not sure if my boyfriend would want me to, I think he would worry too much. I have also...

    It Was Little

    It was definately little, of that I am sure. There were other humans around so I did what they were doing, and I said, "Oh, it is so cute", you know because it was small. But then I saw what I thought was a tail, moving around back there, so now I don't...

    My Dog

    Calie ran off one day and got her self pregant. few months later went to bed (she slept on my bed). I guess i should have paid more attention to her panting than i did. I thought maybe she was out of breath from the baby weight or something. Few hours late I wake up to puppy...

    About Two Months Ago

    Around two months ago I came back from work and opened up the dining room window to let my cats go out. Rambo heard me as usual and jumped outside to have a roam around. I started to clean the litter tray when I realised that Princess hadn't gone out. I went upstairs to find her...

    My Son

    When he first came out he wasn't breathing, but the doctor fixed that promptly and he started screaming as a newborn does.  They wrapped him up and handed him to me and I could not believe how alert and wide-eyed he was.  He didn't look like any newborn I'd ever seen...
