Ratri has given birth to her first baby, a healthy boy. She was very unsure of the whole baby thing and was scared to touch her. Pi Om had to help stimulate the little one with massage to get him going whilst mum looked on. Never seen a mum act like this before. She was going right down to baby's level to eyeball him trying to work out what he was. More photos.

Namphueng has given birth to her third baby, a strong and healthy boy named Plai Saen Laan. As usual, she gave birth early in the night at 9:09pm - one very considerate elephant! Non (her mahout), Neil and others stayed up all night to make sure he didnt wander off too far. CNN had been filming at the Kraal that day and when notified they returned to meet the newest addition to the Kraal. His siblings are Plai Pan Laan and Pang Soilaya. More photos.

Dok Fai gives birth to a healthy boy during the worst floods in living memory at the famous monument of King Naresuan and Wat Phu Khao Thong. Her baby boy has been named Plai Phu KhaoThong, (nick name King Naresuan) in honour of the shrine dedicated to the king who saved Ayutthaya approximately 400 years ago.

Not to be outdone and being another "special day" Galaget decided to drop her bundle so her little boy could be called Valentine! A big strapping boy with long tail and excellent structure, this is Galaget's third baby and with same father Junboon as Angpow so they are officially related. We know there are many Elephantstay team members who will be very excited about this little boy! Galaget being a favourite elephant for many of you out there. As usual mother and baby are doing extremely well!

    

                                                                       Chorn is a happy daddy AGAIN!!!

               

         

         Here comes the afterbirth!                   Chorn removes the afterbirth                       The afterbirth is washed              

Then smoked until dry

The afterbirth is put into the elephant spirit house as an offering to Buddha and then it can be used as a medicine, to help with ailments such as asthma. It is boiled, similar to chinese herbal medicine.

A birth so many of our Elephantstayers were looking forward to! Rumruay gave birth to baby number 43, this morning at 4am, Monday 7th February 2011. Being Chinese New Year the healthy baby girl has been nicknamed Angpow after the red envelopes given out at Chinese New Year. The red envelope bears a front image that garners blessings and good wishes to the recipient and contains money.  The money is used to suppress or put down evil spirits.This is Rumruay's second baby.


    

     

Chris Watt (pictured right) is thrilled and proud as Rumruay was her elephant for her 2 weeks here. On Chris's last visit she had Nampet who is currently in the nursery so now she has become a Grandmother twice!!!!!!!!!!! thanks Chris!!!!!!
We are going to give her an elephant for the rest of her time here who is not pregnant now as well as helping look after the new mum and baby!
