Yesterday, I took part in, what I believe, is one the biggest privileges as a medical student: Delivering a baby.
One of the most intimate moments for a woman and her family, where inhibitions are lost and emotions quickly bubble to the surface – pain, excitement, fear and joy.
Thank you to all families who allow us medical students not only observe but even deliver your child as part of our training experience, especially to the two women whose babies I delivered yesterday. New life is such a miracle and the experience of being the person who catches a baby as he/she is born and hand him/her to mum is one that cannot be easily written into words.
I also cannot forget to mention the lovely midwives who I have been working alongside with. Without their expertise, patience, and teaching, I would not have been able to comfortably embrace such a special experience, thank you!
