CHAPTER ONE HUNDRED and NINETY-TWO
“Since we had Mack, Blane has been working with a mid-wife team,” Heather said. “One of them is really popular, everyone’s favorite. I don’t know if she’d have time, but she likes working with Blane. She sees mostly poor women who can’t afford to have their babies at the hospital. Blane helps assess the women and then helps with the delivery.”
“How does Blane help with the delivery?” Jill asked.
“With acupuncture,” Heather said. “Don’t you remember he gave me some when Mack came.”
Jill shook her head.
“No?” Heather asked. “I thought he did. We’ll have to ask.”
“Maybe I’m slow today, but you’re saying that Blane does acupuncture for…?”
“The pain,” Heather said. “I’ve been to a few births. It’s amazing. No pain, no tearing.”
“Oh you’ll love her,” Heather said. “Does Val speak Spanish? I mean, she speaks English but when she gets excited she’s all Spanish.”
“Celia made Val and Jacob learn when they were kids,” Jill said. “I’ve been trying to learn.”
“Me too,” Heather said. “I suck.”
“Me too,” Jill said. “You think Camila would deliver the twins?”
“I don’t see why not,” Heather said.
“Do you think we should just… you know, set it up?” Jill asked.
The women looked at each other for a moment while they evaluated what they knew about Valerie and her situation.
“Let’s call,” Jill said.
“We don’t know if Camila has time today,” Heather smiled.
“Plus, she can always say no. Do you think Blane will be up for it?”
“After shaking the anesthesia, he seems fine,” Heather said. “He’s at work with Aden right now. He wanted to work as much as he could before… well, we don’t know what will happen next. I’ll call him.”
“I love it when everything works out,” Jill smiled.
“It’s what my heart wants,” Heather took out her cell phone and started making calls.
“Mine too,” Jill smiled.
