Maggie delivered 5 boys & 3 girls on April 4th 2018 over a period of five and a half hour starting at 2:05am.
It was a long evening, but fortunately, I had Alistair Sutherland at my side. Such a wonderful man to give up 2 nights sleep to help me through Maggie's delivery. His calming effect and experience made this such a joyous event.Maggie is the best Mom!..she even impressed Alistair with her calmness, carefully placing her feet when entering and exiting the whelping box. Her instinct was bang on!
