Last night, I had a wonderful delivery for me--- anyway. Patient was a G2, P1 laboring patient, who was pretty sure her water broke on the way to the hospital---husband pretty much confirmed this too.
She came in pretty upset, she only started to have ctx. over the past 30 minutes, and her water probably broke 10 minutes prior to her arrival. She was screaming or shouting something about an epidural, but after making it through triage in a record time of 2 minutes she delivered a beautiful Baby Girl via her pant-leg and amazingly enough, did not sustain an tears and or lacerations. Though her pants were laid to rest and the fact she was insisting on an epidural post delivery---it was an amazingly fast delivery.
Mother and baby were healthy and happy as could be:) It made my night. See, somedays I really do enjoy my job!
