Constantine Jamesson Worden was born on 19 July 2010 at 10:58pm. He weighed a healthy 9lbs 4oz. (4.2kg) and was 21 inches (53.3cm) long. Mother and son are both happy and healthy!
During her long labor the first song Shara needed to hear was Clare and The Reasons song, “You Got Time”. She played the song on repeat… for a looooooooong time. Other artists on the labor playlist were The Living Sisters, Led Zepplin, and Renee Fleming. The lyric’s from Tim Fite’s sing along song “Burn it down” were changed to “baby come on down down down, down down down, please come on down!” and finally after the midwife told Shara that she had to push like she really wanted that baby to come, she cranked Prince’s “The Beautiful Ones” and sang “I want you!!! baby baby baby I want you! Yes I do!”. After 24 hours of labor, Shara and her midwives peacefully came to the conclusion that her big boy needed to be delivered by c-section. After the delivery, the surgeon asked Shara if she had anything to sing and from the operating table came a happy, though quiet refrain of the Hallelujah chorus.
Baby Constantine’s favorite band is, of course, The Constantines.
