The first was a mom of three (now four) who delivered at home, assisted by EMS. Healthy mom, healthy baby, we triaged tem and rushed them right up to L&D so mom could deliver the placenta.
Not even an hour later, we were called out to the street--a young mom was stretched out in the back of a cab, screaming that she wanted to push. Then her water broke (poor cabbie). We got her on a stretcher and RACED upstairs to L&D, exhorting her to PANT LIKE A DOG AND DON'T PUSH!! The baby started crowning just as we rolled through the door of her room. Thank goodness the midwife was right there, as that was more adventure than I wanted.
