blank'/> A LITTLE BIT OF LACQUER: Delivering Babies

October 24, 2012

Delivering Babies

Happy Wednesday! Work It Wednesday will have to be postponed because it turns out I still wear scrubs everyday on ob/gyn! I wear blue every single day (see first photo from my instagram -lauralacquer - for an idea). My real clothes is feeling unloved, my closet's all dusty. It's alright though, because yesterday, on my first full day of ob/gyn, I delivered my first baby. Now, I fully expected to just watch this whole process, but next thing I knew I was the one with my hands down there instructing my patient in Spanish to push as the midwife told me what to do. Unreal. In a matter of seconds a woman went from being completely alone and in tremendous pain (she had no support there besides us) to having the only thing in the world she needed and bursting into tears of joy. It was beautiful. The second photo is of course not me or the baby I delivered (mine was more slimy) but you get the idea.
