March 28, 2011 Dream: My 56-Year-Old Mother Gave Birth Without Warning

My mother, who is 56 years old and postmenopausal in real life, gave birth to an eerily clean baby after showing no signs of pregnancy.  The OBGYN, my friends, and I gathered around her third-world hospital cot and cheered her on during her short and relatively painless labor.  She heaved a few times then shot the baby out of her vagina with one long scream.  The baby did not cry but seemed perfectly alive and content.  I marveled at the cleanliness of the entire process until I realized that babies should be born amidst blood and grossness.  I also did not think to take note of the baby’s sex.  Checking out baby genitalia is not my thing.
