Angel Taylor, 33, was expecting to give birth in mid-March, but early this month, doctors discovered her blood pressure was dangerously high. She needed to deliver a week early.

“We went home and totally ran around like chickens with our heads cut off — we thought we had another week!” She told PEOPLE.

Taylor was admitted to the hospital on March 5 with no dilation. By March 8, she was only dilated four centimetres. Taylor learned she’d have to give birth by C-section that night.

Finally, at 11:24 p.m., after four days of labour, baby Sullivan arrived! He welcomed the world with  a huge smile and outstretched arms.

“He is the chillest baby,” Taylor added.
