Thank God it was a natural birth ( normal Delivery )! Mr. Samuel Kikoba was called in minutes after and held the baby for the first time and just like any other father, he immediately laid hands on her and offered several prayers dedicating her into the blood of Jesus Christ.
When Papa was done praying, and when all the stitching process was complete, the mid wife hand the baby back to the mother to offer colostrum ( first breast milk ) to the beautiful angel. Wednesday morning, numerous family and friends visited showering the mother and the new born baby blessed with gifts. On Thursday 15th, we were discharged from the hospital.
