It’s a writ of baby-us corpus! Court TV copy editor Susie Felber endured 14 hours of unproductive labor before opting for a C-section. “At this point, I don’t care if you take him out of my nostril,” Ms. Felber, who is also a stand-up comic, told her doctors. “My recovery was a nightmare,” she said, “but it doesn’t matter, because I get this great door prize”—an ivory-skinned, lanky baby with a full head of hair that is beginning to fall out. “He looks like an extra in The Day After,” commented the new mom, 35, married for five years to Edward Holland, 42, a Web editor for The Financial Times who’s “really well educated, and very British and serious. The baby turns him into complete goo.” Longtime West Villagers, the couple conceived their son the first week they moved to a two-bedroom in (gasp) Weehawken, N.J. “The office became a nursery—boom!—overnight,” Ms. Felber said.
