Bizzare

  1. 16
    Just when you think you have seen it all...........spent my evening with a laboring patient who had 3 male " significant others " coaching her, peering into her separated labia while she was pushing to see what color the baby's hair was. You guessed it........she didn't know which of them was the father. Her mother was there and everyone seemed to think this was normal. Please don't jump on me for being judgemental, I actually liked the girl and gave her the best care I am capable of. I am just floored by the social situations that are so bizarre, we couldn't make them up.......our imaginations wouldn't stretch that far. These poor children, growing up in an ammoral society. Do they have a prayer of being productive citizens ??? Thanks for letting me vent.

    Ahh... I love when the "dad" comes to the nurses station to ask if we can tell him the day the baby was conceived!!

    This is one of major difference I have found between UK and USA how many people including male family members are in supporting labouring mums all there peering at her waiting to see first glimps of baby- dont get me wrong I do not mind who ever they need - I just that my brothers would rather lose a arm than be in the room with me during labour- in fact for the birth of my first son they were at the hospital for my entire labour but I had no I idea that they were there. In the uk its usally just husband or patner and maybe maternal mother orclosefemaily friend inthe birthing room.

    HA HA HA HA. That is funny. I once had a young mother who had just given birth. I kid you not, two guys met me at her room doorway, held the baby up between the two of them, looked at me and one said, "so who does this baby look like to you, me or him?" I just kind of stood there for a second in shock, afraid to say the wrong thing, and calmly said "well you know, babies all kind of look the same to me" HA HA HA HA HA HA HA. They believed me and didn't bring it up again, but they were both there all day long........:spin:

    Ooooooooo gross! Thinking I should move to the UK. L&D is one place where the fewer the people there the better.

    I'm wondering if the OP's patient was going to hold the kid up next to these three guys so she could pick which one was dad!
