Claire–:))— I got a kick out of your medically graphic comment– and how most people are so euwww about what’s part of their own bodies inside or out. When I worked in surgery as a “scrub nurse” some could not understand how “you could stand all that blood,guts and stuff”. I would tell them to look in the mirror what they saw was not what they got– we are made of all the blood, guts and stuff. Each one of those things put together to work together in order for us to BE is a miracle. Having had 3 sections I think it’s beautiful scrubbed for many and than worked on OB for 10 years and helped deliver many the “natural” way I think it’s beautiful. Fear not of the medically graphic be in awe of it. I’m sure you are.
I worked on a dairy farm. You should see some of the shit I had to deliver. It was still beautiful, and it was magic, and occaisionally we lost one, which was heartbreaking, but the Miracle of Birth is still just that: A Miracle.

• Don’t let go. I don’t wanna fall in any further!
• Pull, damn you, pull!
• Nooo you don’t, doc. Warm up your hands, first.
• I’m free. I’m freeeee!
• Okay, maybe I’m not ready for arm wrestling. Best two out’a three?

Mech #5– NICE!! The first thing every new mother does is to uncover the babies hand and open it’s little fingers so they can hold their finger while they feed them. Than kiss them all over from their heads to their little toes.
