On March 23 at 3:54am Malaysia Standard Time, we welcomed Penelope Susan Carlin into our family. She was born with the help of the wonderful and caring Dr. Narinder at Island Hospital, George Town, Penang.
She weighed 3.83kg (8lb 7oz) and was 54cm (21.3 inches) long.
Although it took her a long while to decide to join us, her actual delivery was quite swift and she was born just 39 minutes after we arrived at the hospital. Everyone is healthy and doing well.
When I was making the decision to travel to Malaysia while pregnant, it was immensely helpful to me to read about other families’ birth stories. I promise to share more of our experience one of these days–stay tuned!
