... that some childbirth educators don't know what prodromal labor is?
... that some midwives are really 2-year-olds in adult costumes?
... that you can take a BP on a fat person down on the forearm perfectly fine (listening in the wrist)?
... that you can put an electric BP cuff on a woman's ankle if she is confined to bed, specifically helpful if she has an epidural - so she has her hands free?
... that I just took on a new client who's 39 weeks and here I am scheduled for a sedated MRI on Friday? Eeek! (Have to think of a resolution to that one quick.)
... that the kids of the new client want me to wear my Buzz Lightyear scrubs? (I like to offer the kids a choice in my scrubs... makes them a part of things with control over a pretty out-of-their-control experience as well as offering familiarity when I come in to the house - recognizable even in different clothes... something to make them smile. I, of course, always ask mom if she even minds scrubs at her birth, otherwise I wear regular clothes and ask the kids what color to wear and wear that.)
... that Diflucan can cause irritability in newborns whose moms take it?
