Joy and Kenny's son Eli is born. Lovie examines the placenta for missing pieces. Lovie narrates her role in the postpartum stage and directs Joy, Kenny and the narrator in their roles. Lovie examines, washes and weighs the baby. According to Lovie's baby scale, Eli weighs 7.5 pounds, but Joy and Kenny confide later to the narrator that he weighed 10 lbs, 14 oz, and that all of Lovie's clients knew her scales were off.
