This story tells me absolutely that I made the right decision not to do OB after graduation, but I did however deliver a few babies in the ED. I had a guy come in one day saying that his wife was in the car having a baby. He told me that all their babies came quick. He cannot remember where he parked his car. This was a huge hospital and there were multiple sites where a person could park. We started waking around the building and finally found his car. The wife was in the front seat, holding the baby between her legs. I felt so bad for her husband. He felt so bad. But the mother and baby were fine.
