Announcing the Birth of Our Daughters
Posted: July 26, 2011, 16:07:29 pm by jim
Dear Friends and Family,
Jen and I wanted to let you know that on July 17th Jen gave birth to two healthy baby girls. We've named them Reverdy (Revie) Pike Nourse and Grace Montgomery Nourse. Jen had a long labor at St Luke's hospital here in San Francisco, where the care was outstanding and Jen was able to have the birth experience she hoped for (a vaginal delivery without pain medication). We are especially grateful to our midwife, Maria Iorillo, and to our OB Dr. Laura Norrell. Jen is recovering quickly and our daughters are thriving.
For the record, Jen gave birth at 39 weeks. Revie was born at 1:47am, weighed 6lbs 5 oz, measured 19 inches with an Apgar score of 9/9; Grace was born at 1:57am, weighed 6lbs 1oz, measured 18.5 inches with an Apgar score of 8/9.
We've all been home a week now and are settling in. Attached are a few photos.
Jim and Jen
