Midwives in New Mexico are unable to deliver twins out of the hospital, so Marti and Doug Emch hired the Midwives to act as Doulas in the hospital setting. Marti courageously delivered her babies on July 18th, 2008. Elliot Hinten Emch was born first at 1:58AM. He weighed 5 lbs 14 oz and was 18 3/4 inches long. Emma Simone Emch was born at 1:59AM. She weighed 6 lbs 11 oz and was 19 inches long. We wish them many restful nights!
