JJ Watt Does Labor and Delivery

When my patient looks like this I know she' in active labor.

This is what my patient does when I tell her I need to check her...

This is how my patient's family comes in running to the hospital, and I have to break the news that it will be awhile before she delivers...

AROM
This is what an AROM looks like when the mom has polyhydramnios. I don’t get wet, ’cause I’m like a ninja. The resident on the other hand has to change their scrubs 😉
This is how I feel when the provider calls a section for failure to progress, I put the patient left lateral and get the patient ready reeeaaaaaaal slow and she delivers. In the bed. Intact. Without a doctor. (oh well, they'll make it there for the placenta).

This is how my patient looked right before she pushed out her baby...and I scrambled to pull the emergency cord to get a provider...
My patient grunted like this right before she delivered and I scrambled to pull the emergency cord to get a provider…but it was too late :/

This is how the dad looks when he sees the baby for the first time 😃

Okay, so football in my house is soccer (I’m married to a Brit).  But my work wife loooves JJ Watt. She has to be his biggest fan.  So this is for her 😃 I may not know what position he plays, but I have to say…what little I know of the guy makes me kind of like him too ❤

p.s.

I really do love the residents I work with. Shout out to Dr. B! 😃

Until my next delivery ❤
