Newborn Exam
Birth Pictures of Lucky Number Seven

The newborn exam is done by the midwife. She looks for measurements, reflexes, and checks out the baby's major organ systems from the heart to the lungs and everything else. It's very through, but even better it's done right next to me where I can watch or even help.
