Labor and Love

This past week at work has been awesome. I think I am definitely wanting to do labor and delivery a lot. Of course I really like the labor and delivery part better than the scheduled c-section but I know some people have to have c-sections for certain reasons and that's okay. The things I enjoy are seeing the excitement in a soon to be new mom, seeing the nervousness in a soon to be dad, watching the grandparents get ready to be grandparents and listening to stories of how their children were born. These days are great. I love being a resource for my patients and making them feel as comfortable as they can. I think to myself, "Hey, I have been through this a few times, what would I want?" You really get to know your patients well. Where I work we are one on one with our patient in labor so there are no other distractions or things to tend to and I really like that feeling. I have been helping moms breath through contractions, get epidurals put it, push out babies, dry babies off, breastfeed, and recover. So far, I am really enjoying this job a bunch. I am so glad I decided to go back to work.
I have one day off and then I work four more in a row before we head to Texas. It will be a nice break for all of us.
Here is a photo of Kambry jumping around in her new rain boots after the rain the other day. She is just too cute!!

Love this picture! With all the ones I've taken I don't think I've ever gotten ones of them jumping :) And the boots just rock the photo!

I am glad to hear you are liking your job. I imagine it was hard getting back in the swing of things and leaving the kids. I has to be sooo rewarding though!

Have a fun trip...
