    I guess I'm just feeling lucky that my hospital and unit wants enough people. we have the OB doc, two OB RNs(we do mom and baby) and always a respiratory therapist present. And we are never questioned on our staffing, pretty much our charge nurse that day gets however many she feels she needs. By the way, a pph mom and a crumping babe, either one alone, would take every one of these people plus some.

    And with the huge rates of interventions you guys inflict on birthing women in the states I'm not suprised you need to be "ready" for a PPH and a flat baby at every birth..........................We have PPHs and flat babies and we deal with it just fine without all the hangers on!!!:heartbeat

    We have 1 ob nurse (2 if available), Md, and OBTech. if anything goes wrong with mom like PPH then the MD and OBtech take care of mom as the nurse assesses the baby and circulate around the delivery room
