Apparently my timing is off these days. I had a labor patient the other night who went really fast and I had her start pushing. She pushed a couple of times and the head descended, but didn’t crown so I told her to wait so I could get the doc from the on-call room down the hall. Well, she stopped pushing but the head came out anyway. So, I ended up delivering a baby! Wasn’t my first delivery, but sheesh! To deliver a baby when the doc is just down the hall is just plain embarrassing! Whoops!
