“A workmate of mine is about to become a dad in the next week. His wife has been getting to know the nurses at their local hospital and listening to some of the stories…

One day a bloke came running down the ward hallway screaming for help that his wife was in labor and they needed the docs to come quickly! The nurses looked around curiously and asked him “ok… so where is she?”

The color from the bloke’s face drains for a second as he thinks this over…

“OH S**T!” and he legs it out of there.

40 minutes later he returns with wife in tow. In his initial rush, he’d packed a change of clothes, the car seat, camera gear, high-tailed it to the hospital, and left the missus at home!”

“Ambulance officer here. Got dispatched to “17-year-old female, difficult pregnancy. Caller statement: Baby born, didn’t know was pregnant. Can’t find the umbilical cord.” Whooooa boy…

Get there, healthy baby girl born. Mother and grandmother sitting on the floor, blood everywhere. Both were emotionally shocked. Umbilical cord right where it should be. Grandmother holding baby outstretches arms and hands me the baby without words while my partner checks out mum.

Grandma comes to me and just says “I thought she was a virgin!”

Mother had texted grandmother while at work to say “Mum, come home, I’ve had a baby.”

The tension in that room… Holy cr*p.”

“I’m a doctor but this is not my story. There was this couple who were gonna birth their first. The father though had already a child from a previous marriage. So when it was time for labor, instead of being supportive and calm and leaving it to the professionals. The father went bats**t and started screaming ”my previous wife wasn’t in this much pain, something is wrong”. That is exactly what a woman in labor would like to hear.”Xyzar

“Not a doctor but am a midwife. We do home delivery in the US. One labor mom was on the bed just working through the contractions. Dad was sitting next to the bed looking at p*rn. I gave him a look and he knew I caught him. No remorse just angled the screen better. Later on, same Dad was just slamming shots and beers. After baby was born he refused to put on the first diaper or hold his daughter. We needed to transfer the baby in due to some blood sugar issues. I go find his drunk *ss playing video games in the kitchen. I told him we needed to go in. He was so pissed off he said now?!! It’s three in the morning. Yeah, dude now. I drove the car because he was so wasted he couldn’t even stand. Lots more but that’s one of the worst.”nightinthewild

“Doctor here, I have only ever ‘delivered’ one baby…

So I’m in medical school on my obstetric rotation. I’m doing a late-night shift cuz I just want to see some births (labor lasts forever, yo). 20s something schizophrenic woman comes in, laboring with her 6th child. Her mother apparently has custody of the other kids, kind of a sad situation.

Police had to break her door down because she went into labor and continuously screamed “I’m not giving birth to Satan’s baby! This is Satan’s baby!” The doctor I’m with looks unamused and just says to the nurse “sedate her a bit, we’ll do a c section if she refused to push, etc”. After about 30 minutes and some sedating drugs, the doctor tells me to go in and do a pelvic exam and to report to him how far along things are. He went in with me, and then got called out as I’m putting on gloves, saying he’ll be back in a minute. I introduce myself to the patient, explain what I’m doing and start the examination. I feel a contracting sensation and the next thing I know a baby’s head pushes my hands out and I’m holding a screaming newborn. I am so in shock I am just staring at the baby and I start to feabily scream, “I, uh, need, uh, some help here!”

Everything was well with the baby and mom. I had to throw away my socks and shoes.

I forgot the best part, where the mother goes, “what’s your name, I’ll name it after you!” It was a boy, I’m female, she insisted I give her my name. I didn’t want to screw up this kid’s life so I said Henry.”

“Oh. Friend’s a midwife. Baby comes out looking very very Asian to an apparently white couple. Lots of umms and looks. Turns out that the father was a mixed-race on his mum’s side and she never mentioned it.”paperconservation101

“One from a colleague of mine. One woman during her second stage (where you’re cervix is fully dilated and you can push the baby out) started pushing. As she did she passed what has been described to me as an utterly massive, 7.5 couric-worthy s**t, that just kept coming. The midwives had to receive it on a large pad and place it quickly on the nearest place which was the baby resuscitaire, as it was still coming. They then went back to the woman to catch the rest and clean up. As they moved back over to her she panicked and asked “is it breathing?!”. They had to get the husband to tell her it wasn’t the baby she’d passed.”mzyos

“This was a nice intense, and for the record, I’m a midwife. In Australia and the UK, midwives deliver the vast majority of babies.

Anyway. there was a woman who was in labor with her fifth child, she and her husband already had four girls. She knew that they were having a boy, but he didn’t (he hadn’t wanted to know the gender). He really, really wanted a boy, not for sexist reasons or anything like that, and I know that he was a wonderful father to his daughters and wouldn’t treat the son any different, but he just wanted a son.

He sat in the corner, reading the paper for basically the whole birth. He wasn’t ignoring his wife or anything, she didn’t want him to touch her while she was in labor, that was just how she went about birthing (she also didn’t want the midwives to touch her, so we stayed as hands-off as possible). When the baby was finally born she broke out in a sweaty grin, looked at me, and said, ‘Tell him.’ I told him that the baby was a boy and he raced around the bed to give his wife a hug and a kiss and to meet his firstborn son. He was crying and laughing and just absolutely overjoyed by the birth of the baby.

That was a good birth :)”

“My great grandmother had 13 children. Somewhere around number 5 or 6 she made it as far as the front lawn of the hospital and gave birth. The next pregnancy she only made it as far as the elevator and was totally mortified. The nurse on staff tried to reassure her by saying “it’s okay, last year someone gave birth on the front lawn.” She had the rest of her babies at home.”smartblondeva

“Obligatory not a doctor, but when my nephew was born, he was so ugly my sister didn’t want to hold him, saying, serious as f**k, “put it back in, it’s obviously not ready yet”

She loves him to bits now, but we never let either of them forget it.”

“Holy cow, have I got a story for you. I’m not a doctor. This was my husband’s birth in 1944. His mom was in labor in a small town birthing home. It was literally in the local doctor’s home. Mom was in a back room with the doctor and a nurse. My husband’s dad was in the waiting room (living room). The doctor came out and told dad there were complications: he could save mom or save the baby. Dad had to choose. My father-in-law got up, walked out, got a gun out of his truck, and came back in. He pointed the gun at the doctor and said both better life or the doctor wouldn’t.

Then dad sat down on the couch with the gun in his lap. I’ve tried to imagine that doctor’s state of mind at that moment. He went back into the room with the laboring mother and ended up pulling the baby out with forceps. Mother and baby lived. So did the doctor. My husband’s skull is a testament to this story. It’s like craters on the moon. I’m grateful he’s never gone bald.”prunepicker

“I was once present at the birth of a very white baby to not white parents. The parents spoke a different language to staff and there was this awkward silence while staff tried desperately not to exchange eye contact or stare at the father for his reaction.

After a while, it was obvious that the father either hadn’t noticed or didn’t care, as he looked delighted and was chatting to the mother happily. Subsequently determined albinism ran in the man’s family.”Anytimeisteatime

“This is actually my grandfather’s birth sometime in the 1920s: my great-grandma was giving birth at home, on the reservation (Apache), and as the labor kicked in full swing, a crow or raven landed on the windowsill.

Now, this is a bad omen, it means someone is going to die or has died. Needless to say, my great x2 aunts and great grandma’s mother started straight tripping, shooing the bird, and whatnot. Bird would not f*ck off, looked at my great-grandma, and squawked.

Grandpa was born a few minutes later, while someone is trying to get the crow to go away. Crow flies off the minute the baby cries. A few minutes later, someone rode up on horseback to tell everyone that my great-great-grandfather had passed away about 15 minutes beforehand. That was right when the crow had landed on the sill.

Family legend says that grandpa was his reincarnation.”

“I gave birth in an emergency room hallway, courtesy of having sudden onset preterm, super short labor. We had JUST moved to a new town and they did not have a full hospital, only a stand-alone ER.

So husband goes casually cruising up the freeway on the way to the hospital 30 minutes away and I had a feeling s**t was about to go down, saw a sign for the ER and just screamed at him to pull off.

We get into the ER and they immediately call an ambulance to take me to a hospital with a NICU. Paramedics are literally wheeling me down the hall to the ambulance when my daughter started crowning.

They rounded the corner of the ER to get to an area with some space and the dude in the room right next to us was in cardiac arrest. So this poor ER is completely empty except the screaming pregnant woman birthing a preterm infant in the hallway and the elderly gentleman dying.

My daughter wound up being solely delivered by the 2 paramedics who were transporting me because the ER doc was busy running the code and the 2 nurses on staff were flying EVERYWHERE. They were running in and out of the other guy’s room with meds and fluid, sprinting around with the baby isolette, etc.

The other patients’ family is clustered in the hallway staring at my gaping vagina while also crying over their dying relative. When my daughter let out her first cry there was a paltry round of cheers from that family and then they all went back to their crying. Meanwhile, my husband has curled up in a waiting room chair heavy breathing from light-headedness and everyone is ignoring his feeble cries for water. He was literally acting like he was about to die.

In the end, no one died, the baby was fine, my husband passed out, and 5 years later I became a paramedic.

It was 0600 AM, hence the minimal staffing.”

“I worked as a hospital parking attendant manning the booth. A car pulled up and the woman was mid-way pushing out her baby in the passenger seat. One relative in the back was giving her a back massage, one was fanning her, her kid was playing on his DS, and her husband in the driver seat nonchalantly smiled at me and asked for one ticket all while the mother just delivered her own baby looking calmed like it was a perfunctory task. I didn’t know what to do so I just gave them free parking.”obeyaasaurus

“My first baby was born by emergency c-section and spent 5 weeks in the NICU. I wanted to try for a VBAC (vaginal birth after cesarean) with my second. I was given a foley bulb induction at 39 weeks and 5 days. They put the bulb into my cervix and expanded it with fluid, and then it slowly expanded my cervix as it fell out. That took about 12 hours and was quite painful.

Then I was given Pitocin, but they cranked it up too high and I was having 6 or 7 contractions in a ten-minute period and I was only at 5cm. They tried to turn it down. I got an epidural and was trying to get some rest when my shoulders started to hurt. I mentioned that I wished the epidural was in my neck so I wouldn’t feel my shoulder pain, which I assumed was from lying on my side.

My husband says at that point I passed out as my blood pressure dropped and about seven doctors and nurses rushed into the room. They pumped me full of epinephrine and stuff. They thought I was having an amniotic embolism or a heart attack. I got rushed to a c-section.

I remember thinking, as they were pushing me down the hall, that the movies get it totally right. The lights on the ceiling did that streaming by thing they show in movie scenes.

They opened me up to discover that my uterus had ruptured and my baby’s hand was coming through into my stomach cavity, which was full of blood and amniotic fluid. It was quite gruesome. Baby was fine, but my husband was convinced I was going to die. I didn’t, obviously.

I was bitterly disappointed about not doing a VBAC and I’ve had people ask me why I “chose” to have a c-section many times. It has really done a number on me emotionally.”

“When I was a nursing student doing my OB rotation, a group of us watched our first delivery. There was no time to do an epidural because the baby was ready and he wasn’t waiting.

After the baby’s delivered, the first thing the dad says is ‘You can rub it my ex’s face that you did it natural.’

It wasn’t a huge dramatic thing but everyone in the room just kinda looked at each other. Like buddy, your son was just born and you’re more excited to one-up your ex?”

“Mom doesn’t want to push because she doesn’t want to poop. I tell her she better get used to poop because that’s what babies do. She pushes and a giant turd comes out, then baby. Then baby poos on the floor as I’m handing him off. Supervising doc asks me why the room smells like s**t.”recycledpaper

“When I was having a C-section I was jamming out to Journey looped on the epidural. I noticed that people started walking around carefully and my husband turned kind of green, but everyone’s response was “it’s okay, you’re doing great, baby’s great, just finishing up!”

Only after I was in recovery did they tell me the end of the suction tube came loose and sprayed blood all over the floor and everyone was covered in it and leaving bloody footprints everywhere. Lol, good times.”

“My parents took those birth classes and were ready to go natural, but had the anesthesiologist on standby. After some pretty bad contractions, my mom gave in and asked for the epidural. My dad went and talked to the anesthesiologist, came back, and whispered in my mom’s ear “he said it’s 500 for it. In cash”. Another contraction came through, and along with it a crack opened on the earth’s crust and my mom screamed “FIND A F**KING ATM”.”9gagWas2Hateful

“The baby’s father was caught cracking open the anesthesia cart and stealing meds.

“A doctor was delivering the baby via ventouse, a vacuum extraction. He was pulling, and you do honestly have to put some muscle into it, those babies are stuck pretty fast in there sometimes. Anyway, the suction cap came off the baby’s head, this happens a lot. The father of the baby thought that the doctor had pulled so hard that he had pulled the baby’s head off, so naturally punched the doctor in the jaw, who went straight down to the ground like a felled tree. Much yelling ensued, people holding the father back, him realizing that the baby was fine once we pointed out that the head was still inside, the unconscious doctor being pulled into a chair, another doctor coming in to do the delivery, the mother crying hysterically.

We had to have a quick and frantic conversation at the midwives’ station about whether to allow the father to remain in the room. We decided that from his vantage point it may have appeared that the baby’s head had been, uh, removed and that he had a momentary loss of reason. He was also hugely apologetic and took responsibility for his actions. The doctor who got punched took every opportunity afterward to tell that story as often as possible and we all laughed.”

“Father broke down, started yelling at his wife that they can’t afford it. She flushes red with anger and embarrassment like “NOW you think is a good moment to bring this up to me? You want me to go back in time for you?” Older child, like 5-6, was in the room too, staring and looking terrified. I tried to calm the father down and he just stormed out. I was delivering a pizza though, not a baby.”1-800-SUCKMYDCK
