HCGH Mom Tweets During Labor

The Howard County Times has a great article about an HCGH Mom who tweeted through her labor. Nichole Kelly is a social media consultant…so, it just came naturally that she would document the birth of her third child last week on Twitter. Here are the messages she sent along the way:

  • Ok folks…water broke…contractions much stronger…only dilated to 2…Signing off for now..

  • Welcome to the world Giavanna Marie Kelly.
Baby Giavanna was born at 5:06 p.m., weighing 5 pounds, 14 ounces. According to dad, Jay Kelly, “Nichole and I certainly have enjoyed our time here at HCGH and really had fun keeping our friends, relatives (and perfect strangers) up to date on Nichole’s labor and Giavanna’s birth.” Giavanna joins brothers Huntor and Kaden.
