Had a couple of natural childbirthers today. I spent my day running back and forth between them doing labor support. Very hard work for them, and hard work for me too - I'm exhausted and am still on call until morning. *groan*
With one lady I had to give the pitocin speech/recommendation after 16 and a half hours of ROM, and no cervical change for 4 hours (in active labor). Just a little boost....had a baby which daddy did a great job of catching, an hour later :) She was awesome.
The other lady was going for a VBAC - success!!!! Not a big surprise as she had had vaginal deliveries before. She did fabulous as well.
I seem to be having a run on ladies with stalled out labors at advanced dilatations...:PPPP
