Our (mom and I) first time phone-banking for Bernie and we just got off the phone with a supporter whose wife was in active labor. Hope all goes well and congratulations on your little bundle of joy! Have to be honest, we were a little frantic, but tried to keep calm (training doesn't prepare for this lol). It’s moments like this, though, that make it all worth it! If we fight hard enough this kid could grow up in a country where healthcare is a human right!
