today was a great day.
we picked up this beautiful baby and his mom from the hospital. he had to be delivered c-section because he was transverse. friday night his mom came in saying that her water broke and she wasn’t really hurting, but since i told her to come right away if her water broke, she did. mind you, it was about 8 pm and she said she noticed her water broke at four. but, “right away” is relative right?? i am just really grateful she did come. her baby had not turned head down and she wasn’t in labor, so off to the hospital we went. the hospital had space and did a c-section that night and today is the first day we get to see this precious little baby!! cute, huh??
another mom came in this morning around 8 am and had been hurting since 3 in the morning. she had no difficulties and delivered a beautiful little girl, who i think breast fed for the first hour of her life! perfect.
i taught about family planning today and felt like the women were very open to participating and asking great questions. there are many superstitions and mis-information about family planning, so open conversation was great.
i just had some watermelon that was perfect. all in all, so far today has been great.
