first real day of maternity rotation down.
eleven more to go.

what i've experienced so far-
quite a few pregnant women.
ethical dilemmas.
fetal heart monitor.
pitocin. lots of pitocin.
and my first female foley catheter placement!

not experienced so far-
a real labor and delivery experience
my own patient's baby
and much more...

my first day was a little uneventful, but it gave me time to observe and hopefully ease my way into this strange unfamiliar place known as the "family birth center"... with more adventures to come, i'm sure!

I'm so glad it went well! is this going to be your specialty or is it part of the rotation for classes? Either way how exciting! I <3 babies. :D

just part of a rotation for classes. i don't think i want to make this my specialty, but i'm enjoying the visits to labor & delivery thus far! =)
