“You did great!” – OB to mother who had an emergency cesarean while planning for a VBAC.  The OB came around to the mother’s side of the surgical drape, and held the mother’s head in the OB’s hands and looked into her eyes very sincerely.

  1. Sounds like my obstetrician. She sat on the bed and hugged me as I sobbed when my waters broke at 27 weeks. 2 weeks later at my delivery she had tears in her eyes when she said what an honour it was to be present at a birth. Well done to you OP for trialing a VBAC.

  2. Wow. this brought tears to my eyes. A little compassion goes a looooooooong way.
