Cover Kid
Name: Elena (Mom: Geta Ramdihal)
Age: Born Feb. 9, 2019
City: Brooklyn Park
Parents: Dad: Navendra Ramdihal

Delivery stats: 6 pounds, 7 ounces, 19 inches

 

Birthed at: Maple Grove Hospital

 

Pregnancy cravings: Subway, waffles and cookies

 

Birth story: My water broke at home; we went to the hospital and my doctor induced labor. After I did some good pushing, Elena came out crying with a full head of black hair. After seeing her, my heart was full of joy; it was the best thing that’s ever happened to me. She is God’s blessing.

 

What has surprised you most? She is here — with her smile and all her little stretches, which make me love her more and more. What’s more amazing is to see my Elena getting used to our family and our surroundings. I’m eagerly looking forward to the months and years ahead with my little angel, Elena.

 

Advice for new mamas: Eat your vegetables and protein; drink your milk; take your vitamins. Keep all your doctor appointments. Always be close to your family and friends. And always remember to ask if you don’t understand something.
