  • Re: what is your favorite part of a birth?

     When it's all over, and everyone is tucked into bed, all clean, and fed, and warm, and snuggly, sleepy, relieved, happy. There's just something about that last vignette, that last gaze at the brand new family before I go, that is so satisfying to my soul.

  • Re: Feedback requested for a senior engineering design project

     http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Sgn_kfujwSk&feature=related   This is amazing...the woman in the video arrived at the hospital after birthing her 9th child at home and suffering PPH, she was so exsanguinated they couldn't read her blood pressure or find a vein.

FHT's great, (I routinely check after each push) 8 hour labour, no mec, no cord, no blood.....about an hour pushing (primip). Baby comes out pale and floppy, looks around, and just checks out. Stim him up, mom is calling his name and talking to him.....he comes back, ...

  • Re: HELLP Syndrome/eclampsia

    I had a case that was almost similar....my daughter in law. First baby, 18 y/o. BPs in the 110/70  range through out pregnancy.

Listen to baby, take bp, 110/70, ...
