Mothers are the only ones who can truly relate to and comprehend the agonizing hours of labor. Mothers must exert a lot of physical effort and mental fortitude in order to give birth. In the case of 33-year-old Angel Taylor, her unborn child chose to put her will to the test for four trying days before emerging from the womb. And he did it in style when he finally showed up! He was smiling and waving his arms in the air when the surgeons pulled the new out.
Only as Sullivan gets older will he understand the physical, emotional, and psychological strain his mother went through to bring him into the world.
Following a normal prenatal checkup, it was discovered that Angel had high blood pressure and would need to start labor one week earlier than scheduled. She was quickly admitted to the hospital. Doctors gave modest doses of a hormone to cause contractions because there was no dilatation. Given that her previous pregnancy ended in a C-section, doctors decided against giving her an active induction because there was a life-threatening risk of a uterine rupture and the possibility of her being treated.
This required Angel to undergo slow labor while waiting for nature to take its course. She wasn’t prepared for the four days of excruciating labor. Doctors discovered that the baby could not come out of the canal after she had dilated four centimeters and the delivery procedure had started. Doctors eventually performed a C-section to deliver Sullivan, who smiled and extended his arms to everyone in the room. A short while afterwards, his father bowed down by his wife’s head, possibly praying to Allah and giving thanks.
“I thought it was just so comical,” Angel said in a statement to People. “He would be like that in my womb, always straining. If you just came out, you’d have so much more room to stretch, we’d tell him. And that’s exactly what he did when he came out. A mig relief, indeed. We were concerned about his performance. He was in excellent condition.
She is currently loving being a mother and thinks Sullivan has fit in well. “He is the most laid-back. He is quite kind and composed. He rarely sheds tears. He is incredibly lovely and absolutely adores cuddling. My older children adore him and can’t get enough of wanting to be around him.
