Dad In Iraq Watches Birth Of Twins Online

Dad In Iraq Watches Birth Of Twins Online, Erin Zimbelman's husband was able to share a life-changing experience despite being in the Mideast. Father in Iraq Watches Birth of Twins Via Skype, No mountain was high enough, no river was wide enough, and no valley was low enough to keep one Montana man from watching the birth of his baby twins on Sept. 25 at North Valley Hospital in Whitefish, Mont. Jon Zimbelman, 31, Skyped with his wife, Erin, all the way from Basrah, Iraq, where he works as a contractor in the private sector, to watch the delivery of his now-2-week-old twins, Braylon and Brielle.

Erin Zimbelman, 32, of Kalispell, Mont., was worried the hospital might not allow the Skype session to occur, but got the final approval just in time for the babies to arrive. "I just told him, go get to hard line, go to your office, be ready," Zimbelman told ABC News. Because Zimbelman was giving birth to twins, the delivery had to take place in the operating room, where Internet connections are not normally allowed. The anesthesiologist had the final say, and he eventually agreed to allow the iPad in the room.
