Chicago, IL–Despite a long, protracted, difficult delivery of their first born child, area man Henry Hope, wants to assure you he is doing OK. He tells the GomerBlog team, choking back tears, “Well, my wife, Julia, labored for 27 hours, and when she wasn’t progressing, finally had an emergency c-section. It was so hard for me to watch her go though all that pain, and not be able to help. Everyone said it would be tough, but I just had no idea how challenging it would be. On me.”

New father had no idea how hard labor & delivery would be on him.

Their new bundle of joy, Lola, initially had a tough time latching on. Henry describes the ordeal as “excruciating” to watch his wives nipples bleeding with their baby screaming at her top of her adorable lungs. “It was just impossible for me to see them both struggling. I offered to give the baby a bottle, but Julia started crying hysterically, saying she was a failure as a new mom and human being. You seriously have no idea what I’m going through.”

When the postpartum nurse finished changing the baby’s meconium diaper, removing mom’s foley catheter and changing her postpartum panties, she asked if there was anything else they needed. Sleeping on the couch, the new father rolled over, “Nah, I’m OK. Well, actually, I could use a more comfy pillow, and a few extra blankets. Maybe one that’s heated?”

Fortunately, Henry’s mother is visiting now, and will be able to devote all of her time and attention to caring for her son during this difficult time. You know, when she’s not pointing out all of the things her daughter-in-law is doing wrong.
