A Family Divided: Delivery Day!

A Family Divided: Delivery Day!
Alexandra has her baby and the family reacts!
As Alexandra goes into labor and is whisked off to the emergency room, Dr. Phil drops everything and begins his cross-country trip to be with the family.


"I scrambled for the plane as Alex headed to the hospital," says Dr. Phil. "With the help of some highly committed pilots, very helpful air traffic controllers and some good tail winds, I just made it."


Martin greets Dr. Phil in the waiting room. "I wish I could be in there," says Martin. "This wait is killing me."


"Let's just wait this out together," says Dr. Phil.


Erin is with Alexandra through every step of the birthing process, encouraging her to push and reminding her to breathe.


After the birth, Alexandra and Erin recall the experience. "I was in a lot of pain and I was scared," says Alexandra. "I was nervous, but also relieved because I know it's only a matter of time before Nathan is here."


"She was looking up at me and I was telling her, 'Let's get through this contraction,'" says Erin.

"I saw him, and he started to cry and I thought, 'Oh my gosh, he's really here,'" says Alexandra.


"The doctor held up Nathan and I felt really, really excited," says Alexandra. "I don't even know how to explain it, I just cried. I felt so much love for him when he was only a couple of seconds old."


As Alexandra recovers from labor, Erin leans down over her and whispers, "I love you."


"I love you too, Mommy," Alexandra replies.
