This Mother's Day is extra special for one new San Diego mom, who gave birth at 2 a.m. to a beautiful baby girl.
Monica and Kyohei Yoshida were kind enough to let NBC7 in their hospital room at Sharp Mary Birch, just hours after giving birth to Eva Alice.
The Yoshidas had not slept in over 36 hours when they spoke to NBC 7 about how relieved and exhausted they were over the birth of their daughter.
“I’m relieved she’s out, we’re exhausted,” Monica explained, “now I can’t exactly sleep because she needs us and we have to take turns sleeping.”
The family said they are thrilled to be new parents, but just a little tired.
Monica started having contractions at 10 p.m. Friday night.
It was a long labor, Monica said, but she is excited to have her baby girl.
“I can’t wait to dress her up!” Monica said.
