It was seven in the evening and still no sign of the baby. By now, she had already had been in active labor for more than ten hours.
‘Natasha, we might need to think about the possibility of a C-section’, doctor suggested in the evening.
‘No, I have a birth plan, my child would be born naturally.’, Natasha was adamant.
‘The baby could go into distress.’, Ananth tried to convince Natasha.
‘No, just 30 minutes more. We have waited for so long.’
One hour later
The silence of the room was broken by the cries of the new-born. The child was born on her own will naturally ,healthy with rosy cheeks. Natasha had waited 40 weeks to hear this sound. It was music to her ears.
‘Congratulations, your baby girl is here. She is beautiful’, doctor exclaimed giving the child in her arms.
The baby was then taken away for clean up, while Natasha was moved to her room. Ananth informed her that they would be bringing their child to the room soon.
Her thoughts were hazy and it was taking time for the feeling of motherhood to sink in. She wanted to sleep, but could not wait longer to hold her princess in her arms.
Finally the nurse brought her child and gave her to hold and asked,’ Have you decided the name of the child? We need the name for our hospital records.’
‘Her name is Ziva!’, replied Natasha without giving it any second thoughts.
Ananth lovingly looked at her daughter and affirmed, ‘Yes, Ziva is here.’
