PYLESVILLE, Md. — Robyn and Jason Goodman live in Pylesville with their three children.

Then came 12:59am Thursday, when mom said “It’s time”.

Over fears of COVID-19 the couple decided to bring in a midwife instead of racing to the hospital.

But then they decided no one should come into their home. So dad rolled up his sleeves and brought Sawyer Hart Goodman into this world.

Mom talked with the midwife who guided her through all the after birth checks, and thankfully baby Sawyer checked out healthy.

Sawyer joins three other little Goodman’s, Arlynn , Jonas and Caleb.
