booty first..

my patient today had a baby who was breach (butt first).. so i got to see my first c-section... it was crazy.. in less than 10 minutes they had that baby out.. and it was weird.. here comes this baby, who one minute was taking a nap safe and sound inside warm mommy, and was now all of a sudden getting tugged out, leg first by a doctor, into this OR room, which is like 60 degrees.. the poor thing was unahppy - and she let us know..
either way.. here is the lesson learned today - i thought C sections were a much better choice than a regular delivery.. but.. now - i'm not so sure.. it's not pretty.. then again.. the other way isn't excatly pretty either..
