I have spent the last three days working around a dozen pregnant females.
Yesterday one went into labor.
I felt at home with all of those hormones in the air.
Growing up, there were babies being born almost monthly.
Learned about lactation, the importance of colostrum, the discomfort that comes with a case of mastitis….
I’ve seen my share of placenta’s….
I was telling my son this morning about the time I helped with a cesarean.
She (the patient) was awake through the whole procedure.
I can still see the Dr take his scalpel and make the incision.
Ended up using some kind of gizmo to get the little stinker out when he couldn’t pull it by hand…the baby was too slippery.
I didn’t realize at the time, just how much I was absorbing growing up on a dairy farm. 😉
