Five weeks ago Laila Ali had her baby boy. In the announcement there was a vague mention of "surprises" and a "change of plans" about her home birth. I was curious to know what had happened--breech presentation? complications during labor? I just read more about the birth today. She was induced at 39 weeks for suspected growth restriction (although with her baby weighing 6.8 pounds, it doesn't seem that serious). Fortunately all ended well. She had a 15-hour labor, a vaginal birth, and a healthy baby. And isn't the new family beautiful?
