Almost 2 weeks of OB rotation and I realize that this field is actuallly cool (yeah, kadiri too HAHA). Its stressing and draining, yes but its rewarding. I won’t forget that mom who was screaming and twitching with pain while the resident was stitching her laceration and yet smiled brightly when her newborn cooed.
But sadly, we are stripping them of the joy of giving birth. The experience is supposed to be memorable not traumatic. They do not deserve to be insulted even its her 1oth child or her 1st baby at the age of 15. Even most times they seem ignorant of their condition, harsh comments are not warranted. Not because they are less priveleged they deserve less respect than those who can afford the pay wing. Let us not loose our empathy and compassion. Don’t let stress and arrogance drain us of love. If we are struggling to love then we are not for the medical field.
I find OB beautiful because of the babies. I will forever have the heart for kids, my human stress-balls HAHA
