APGAR Test for Newborns

Do You Know What Your Child Scored on the APGAR test?

It's a boy! It's a girl! It's...going off for its APGAR test! So many new mothers are in a state of bliss upon welcoming their child into the world that when it comes time for the newborn to undergo his APGAR (Appearance, Pulse, Grimace, Activity, Respiration) test, she hardly wants to let him go. Truth be told, it all happens within the babe's first five minutes of life so many parents don't even notice his quick removal for a few fleeting moments. As a mother of two children, one might think I could recall at least one of my baby's test results... but I don't. Do you know what your babe scored on his APGAR test?
