It's a well known "fact" that when it rains, life at work gets a little bit crazy. Of course, I don't know if it's the economy, our mild summer weather, or if everyone was just feeling the love this last year ... but babies have been coming long past the typical "season." Normally, by this time of year, work slows down and we get to take a breather before everything starts hopping again around April. I have to brace myself before work because I know it's going to be another busy night, especially now that we're getting overtime texts left and right.
I love my job. I do; but it can be stressful. I want to provide the best birthing experience I can for each of my patients ... so I have to try and breathe through it.
