“Stop pushing. Dad can’t just catch the baby! The doctor has to be here for that!” -L&D Nurse to mother after the baby’s head was delivered into Dad’s hands, and about 10 minutes before the OB made it to the room
” Oh honey, she can’t possibly be close to having her baby, her water hasn’t even broken yet. Why don’t you go wait in the waiting room and we’ll call you when we have her all ready” -L&D nurse said to doula.
A few minutes later, L&D nurse comes running out to waiting room “Honey, honey, hurry up, you’re going to miss the birth!!!”
“I’m sorry, but your questions are far too informed. You are too knowledgeable. I can’t answer your questions for you… I will book you in with the head of anesthesia for you to talk to. May be they can answer some questions for you.” -OB to mother inquiring about pain medication options during her upcoming twin birth.
