Liela came in the clinic fully and the BOW was already ruptured clear. The baby was out after 13 minutes. The baby was given free-flow oxygen due to cyanosis but the color pinked up after few seconds. I was very fast birth with no complications. She has a 1st degree laceration that needed no suturing. It was good she did not hemorrhage considering she was very anemic. She just lost a very minimum amount of blood at birth.
It was a very exciting birth. Liela has a twin sister that I got to see. They really looked alike. After few months we visited them at their house and Leila cut my hair. It was fun.

This is my first birth handle. I was very excited but at the same time I was kind of a little bit scared. I was so thankful that the birth team was very supportive of me. The patient was pushing for a long time and did all the position possible to help the baby to come out. AT did push up the cervical lip. She managed it and I took over when the baby’s head was already almost crowing. Finally the baby was out with thick meconium stain and was suctioned with suction machine. The placenta was out after 7 minutes. She had a 2nd degree laceration that AT and I sutured. It was a great birth although it was a hard one.

Busy shift

Friday, August 14th, 2009

I am the only supervisor left in the birth room because all of the other staff and students were out for the graduation ceremony. I worked with people that I do know except for one. We were six of us but only one who has experience how to deliver babies. It was a little bit of hard because I don’t know the people that I am working with. But everyone was doing their best to work and take care of the patients. There were 2 labors and postpartum patients endorsed to us. I delegated the 2 labors. One patient delivered normally after a long time of pushing. The other one had BOW rupture with no progress so she was transported right before the shift change. Then there was a patient who came in active labor with the urge to push. I was the next up so I delivered the baby. She delivered her baby 5 minutes after arriving at the clinic. The baby was crying but was very blue for how many minutes. We administered oxygen to him and suctioned but still continued to be cyanotic all over the body. We were about to transport the baby to the hospital but after few minutes the baby’s color slowly became pinkish. It was a very weird situation because the baby was crying loudly. He was breastfeeding good. Then after that there was no episode where the baby became cyanotic. Before discharging them, I advised the parents to check their baby with a doctor to make sure that everything is normal in his heart. The patient came after 3 days for the baby check-ups and said that the baby had a check up with the paediatrician and everything is well.6/09/09

Working on Independence day

Saturday, July 11th, 2009

Today is our Independence Day. I worked swing shift with Ana, Serena, Stefanie. I received a labor who is G1P0 whose Bow was already leaking. She was advised to do nipple stimulation to induce contractions and to take castor oil. Serena transported 2 labor patients to the hospital because of breech position of the baby and the other one was already overdue. Ermie was so nice to do my remaining 3 hours of work in order for me to go home. I arrived home at 1opm.6/12/09

Two babies born

Saturday, July 11th, 2009

I worked Day shift. I do not like to work morning shift because you really need to get up early. Our shift begins at 6am and it ends 2pm. But I do like it though because the time runs so fast unlike other shifts the time runs so slow. We had one patient who is G2P2. I checked my patient that I delivered the other day and did the mother and baby check-up. Everything was normal. I also did Newborn screening. There was another patient who gave birth with Serena and Heather.
