First Day of Ob-Gyn
Today was my first day of Ob-Gyn, and I saw two deliveries. One patient was having frequent contractions and she started to have the baby while I was telling a resident about the patient. Actually, she was having such bad contractions, I hurried my interview and told my resident about her. She was rushed into the delivery room, and while my fellow medical student and I were looking for shoe protectors, in two minutes, she had the baby. The second delivery was a caesaraen section which was iminent. The whole process of deciding to do the C-section and taking the baby out took about 15 minutes. It was truly amazing how fast labor and delivery can progress.
