I need to get another cup of coffee.  Do you think I have enough time to run downstairs and pour a cup?  I don't want to miss the birth, rofl.

Why isn't someone helping her?

@goldensrbest  No one can help her.  This is the natural progression of giraffe labor.  I am sure if they suspect anything is off, the camera will be shut off and the medical people will address it.

Re: APRIL the Giraffe is HAVING HER BABY!

We saw someone's hand give her treats.  I am sure there are more folks in there assessing the situation.  Poor girl, maybe she can feel thousands of eyes on her.  I sometimes wonder if she can feel it - that there are thousands of people watching her and pulling for her.

Re: APRIL the Giraffe is HAVING HER BABY!

The park has said in one of their updates, that they will not intervene in the birth.

 

To do so would be more harmful to April and her calf.

You never know how strong you are until being strong is the only choice you have.
