Margaret “Maggie” Webber missed walking across the stage for her law degree but there’s a good chance it didn’t bother her professors.

Instead, the University of Houston Law Center grad was at the Texas Children’s Hospital delivering her son Hudson Brian Webber Jr. While she wished she could have made it to graduation, Webber isn’t too bummed that she missed it.

“I love the timing, I wouldn’t have changed a thing,” Webber said. “My husband was absolutely there to support me and cheer on.”

Webber said she took most of her tough classes early in her law school education so classes were lighter during her pregnancy.

She knew she was cutting it close to her May 13 graduation with her son – – nicknamed Beau – – on the way. When her water broke at midnight, she knew she’d be celebrating her achievement from the hospital room. 

When asked if Beau will retain some of the lectures, Webber laughs, “I sure hope so. I just hope he doesn’t argue with me too much when he’s older.” 

Webber said she has a little bit of a break before taking the bar exam in July. This fall, she’ll work for Vinson and Elkins in Houston.

“It was a great experience. The administration was really helpful,” Webber said of going to school while pregnant. “People do hard things every day. Being pregnant and going to law school is hard, but there are harder things.”
