Good news! I just found out that I get to go back to do a second OB floor observation! This time I'm going in for a Friday dayshift, so that hopefully I can see an induction and/or C-section...or just a plain old BIRTH! I'm a little unusual for my classmates...I'm a natural birthing advocate ALREADY, thanks to my Mama. She was adamant about her own natural childbirths (me and Younger Brother), and it really rubbed off on me. I even went up until surgery with my appendicitis because i knew that childbirth HAD to be worse, and if Mama could do it, so could I (turned out to be a great choice, as I was lucid enough to refuse full anesthesia, and got a spinal instead, which worked MARVELOUSLLY well).
Still...a C-section would be really good to see, since I'm sure we'll see them on our OB rotation, and I'd like to see one before i have to be knowledgable and competent as an assistant.
