Rory Alfred Egan

Today I gave birth to our beautiful baby boy, Rory Alfred Egan. After being admitted to Mount Sinai last night, I was induced, then pushed for 10 minutes (my doctor’s record for shortest pushing time for the year) and gave birth at 3:08pm today. It’s incredibly difficult to explain all of the mixed emotions that you experience, but all I can say is that when you first see the little face of the baby you’ve been carrying carefully inside you for nine months all of the pain and worry subsides and you have an immense feeling of love and awe. Watching my beautiful husband, getting quite emotional and holding our baby boy for the first time, his face full of pure love, was truly one of the most beautiful things that I have ever seen.
