Ok hey guys. Just thought I'd pop on here while on my break. My patient, bless her heart is about 8cms last check and laboring down nicely. It's their first baby and they are just so excited. She started laboring this am, came to our triage twice and got sent home lol. Poor girl! Finally tho its her time. This is a really nice couple. You know the kind; really nice to tend to.
I would sound all Hallmarkish if I tried to put into words how I feel about my job now. Oh well. Here goes. I feel as if it is a priviledge to help wee babys into the world. To be there with the couple explaining and teaching constantly to ease their fears. To put my hands on that new life seconds after its first breath. When my patients thank me for "all I've done"; I always tell them that too. That it was as much My honor also. This new job is so rewarding for me. I hope I always have this fervor.
I'll let you know how it all goes! Did I say how much I love my job! =)
Surprise Birth...Well Sorta!
