Bowen Seth Iorg was born April 20th at 9:21 pm. He was 8 lbs. 4 oz. and 21 inches long. We are so happy he is a part of our family!!!
Bowen was born by emergency cesarean section which was a surprise to us since both he and Makenzie had been so healthy during the pregnancy. Makenzie went into labor around 7am Sunday morning, then received her epidural at 4pm. A couple hours later the nurses noticed that Bowen's heart rate was dropping really low. They gave Makenzie an oxygen mask and moved her around and the heart rate slowly crept up. This happened two more times, so the doctor decided to do the surgery. Once the decision was made, Bowen was out within 15 minutes. He was completely healthy at birth. It turned out that the cord was wrapped around his ankle twice, which decreased blood flow. The doctor said that he probably would have had a really hard time getting through the birth canal because of the tangled cord and they would have had to do a C-section at 2am when Makenzie was pushing. We are grateful that he is a healthy boy and that Makenzie is recovering so well.
