a journal entry: 27 june – 2 july 2009

i was REALLY nervous about jacqueline having her baby in the village. if something were to go wrong, the nearest hospital with a doctor was 35 km away. and if that did happen, what could i do? would i be able to find someone to take her? could i even afford that? i had always wanted to see a baby being born, but could i handle if things went badly?

i was very thankful that my friend kim had come to stay with me at my house for a while. and everything with jacqueline went fine and a new healthy baby was born into our world!

jacqueline and the new baby!

so yesterday morning jacqueline went into labor. then before dinner they took her to the clinic. i almost went but decided not to. i’m just glad that kim was at my house to take my mind off of things.

so this morning kim and i went to the clinic and found jacqueline and a beautiful baby girl. (yet to be named!) and even better is that jacqueline is doing well. so now i’ll be able to relax when i go home for vacation. i’m also really glad that she and the baby are healthy. she was really stressed and freaking out on thursday night. i kept asking bamary (my host mom) about all her child birth experiences (she had 14 children) and jacqueline kept saying to stop talking about it. but i kept telling her it was too late to do anything about it and i figured she needed to know what was coming!
