The last two births I have attended have had some interesting comparisons and contrasts to be made. Both of them were second babies and second home births that I have helped the couples with. One family has two boys with the average birth weight of 9#8oz. The other family has two girls with the average birth weight of 6#8oz. Cute. One family the first baby was within a day of the due date and the second over a week after. The other family the first baby was over a week after the due date with the second within a day of the due date. I love how I often get these kinds of contrasts.
