Introducing Catherine Anne Horwitz, Live Over iPhone 4 FaceTime

My daughter Catherine was born yesterday at 3:55pm, and 40 minutes later, she met her sister Madeline (and two of her grandparents) for the first time over a FaceTime connection.


The first photos of Madeline were sent out from the original iPhone nearly two years ago, with early video chats handled through iChat. Once Apple adds FaceTime support to iChat—and more devices—we won’t be the only people sharing these moments live from a hospital room.

Congrats!  That was one of the first things I thought of before the FaceTime “infomercial” showed it.

Didn’t have wifi where my 2nd daughter was born. Plus she was born on the 23rd. Too early for iPhone 4 !!

Thanks! And I was surprised that the Wi-Fi network at the hospital allowed the video chat to work without a problem - very solid connection!
