    revising of a few sentences 8

    Dear teachers,

    Would you be kind enough to shere with me your opinion concerning the usage of the verb “deliver” in the following sentences?

    deliver = to give birth to

    To be delivered of a child.

    She delivered a baby boy this morning.

    She delivered easily.

    She was delivereed of a second child.

    My mother deliveredme by Caesarean section.

    The queen was in due time safely delivered of a prince.

    Although we'd planned to have our baby at home, we never expected to deliver her ourselves.

    deliver = to assist (a woman) in giving birth

    The doctor delivered her of twins.

    Thank you for your efforts.

    Regards,

    V.
