The Walking Dead Does Labor and Delivery


This is how I feel when I can hear my patient screaming from all the way down the hall.


This is how I feel when I hear someone say that it doesn’t matter if the patient is contracting every minute if she isn’t feeling them, so I should continue to increase the Pitocin.


This is how I feel when I get yelled at for not increasing the Pitocin.


This is how I feel when my patient is admitted for active labor and delivers all on her own (it can still happen!)


This is how I feel when the doctor walks into the room for delivery, says I called them for the delivery too soon, and then the baby pops out while the doctor is still gowning up.


This is how I feel when a baby’s head turtles back, and I foresee myself giving suprapubic pressure.


This is how I feel after working 5 straight days in a row.



Yeah, that’s about right!
