          A Family Divided: Delivery Day!

          July 08, 2004

          After nine long months of waiting — during which time she’s explored options for her baby’s future — 15-year-old Alexandra gives birth to a baby boy. Dr. Phil flies across the country to be with the family. He also receives a dramatic letter from the baby’s paternal grandmother.

          Delivery Day!
          Erin stands by her daughter’s side through every step of the process, as Dr. Phil flies across the country to meet baby Nathan and to get the family’s reaction to the new addition to the family.


          Alexandra goes from teenager to mother. 


          New Grandparents
          Dr. Phil sits down with Martin and Erin right after Nathan’s birth to hear their thoughts about Alexandra’s decision to keep the baby. Dr. Phil also meets with Alexandra after she delivers.



          See what Dr. Phil says to the family.


          Letter from the Father’s Side
          Dr. Phil receives a letter from the baby’s paternal grandmother. He then asks Alexandra, Katherine, Martin and Erin how they feel about including the father in the baby’s life.



           The paternal grandmother shares her thoughts. 


          Life as a Mom
          As the family adjusts to life with little Nathan, they also have to get used to the mood swings and sensitivity Alexandra is experiencing as her hormones fluctuate after giving birth.



          A new addition to the family.
