Charlotte is Here!

 
Tori Smith and Bobby Smith

All three of the June Bates babies have arrived! The most recent, Charlotte Raine Smith, was born Thursday, June 24th, at 5:35am. She weighed 5 pounds 11 ounces and measured 19 inches long. Tori and Bobby had quite the scare during Charlotte's delivery when her heart rate dropped due to the cord being wrapped tightly around her neck. Visit the UPtv website to see the first photos of this sweet baby and to read quotes from the elated parents.

  2. All three births were stressful. Jadon had his lung collapse, Josie's baby was in the NICU because of an Rh factor possibly, and this baby with the cord tightly around her neck. Having a baby is not easy that's for sure. Thank the Lord they are all fine now. My niece had her first baby yesterday too, and it was stressful as well,resulting in an emergency c-section with my niece being put right under. But everything is ok with them as well. Boy oh boy! Not easy at all.

  3. That had to be so horribly scary for the parents when Charlotte’s cord was cutting off oxygen. Praise God that the doctor could react quickly. Forty years ago, my friend went through the same thing but there were no machines at the hospital to warn them. Her baby girl, Anne, was stillborn. Very tragic.

    1. I mean, the baby having a cord around it’s beck isn’t an uncommon thing and has no correlation to the other two less common medical events. Josie and Hazel’s blood type being incompatible, while a bit more uncommon, isn’t extremely rare; although they did say hazel has a more rare strain. Jadon’s issue could have something to do with Whitney having covid during her pregnancy, or it could just be one of those things that randomly occurs.

    9. Wow crazy !! Three kids at 25 that used to be normal. I am 21 with one kid and one due soonπŸ™‚ it’s pretty normal to get pregnant when you are married.

    10. @10:21 Within my circle of friends and family, it’s “normal” to use contraception. Most finished college before getting married. Those who do have kids waited a few years before starting a family.

    11. Within my circle of friends people mind their own business. At least they aren't on government assistance.

  17. See how important a hospital birth can be, Jessa Seewald? You never know what will happen. Thank God Tori didn't go home birth. That little girl would most likely not have made it. Babies first, mothers preference second, I say.

    1. You're implying that women who choose homebirth are somehow not doing what's best for their baby. I think that's a stretch. If you have a skilled nurse/midwife, a birth at home can be quite safe. If being in a hospital setting will stress out the mother, it can affect the baby as well. Obviously, if you have risk factors it makes sense to be in a hospital, or if it's your preference. I agree that Jessa would be wise to deliver in a hospital, considering her history.

    2. A home birth probably would have gone the same way midwifes are every bit as knowledgeable as to how to handle things like that as doctors. You can’t get a baby out any faster naturally at a hospital unless forceps are used and those can result in very bad injuries, so most doctors don’t even use those.

      Many women choose home birth because it is better for mom and baby.

    3. Hospital births in the US carry risks too.

  18. Hey Tori!!!! I am soooo glad U are safe, and sound!!! Charlotte, is super cute, U 2 have wonderful cute kids, and I love U 5!!!! Wow now 5!!!!

  19. All births carry some risk, at home or in the hospital. This is why it is wise to deliver in a hospital IF any emergency personnel and/or equipment is needed. Every second counts and all is right there and available....on the spot.
