Giving Birth

In the Decade of the 1990s, the country was shaken by terrorism, had blackouts at night, without prior notice, of erratic duration, sometimes of little time, sometimes longer, sometimes even already lasted until dawn. Attend births in those circumstances was more complicated still when I was attending births in the old and beloved maternity Bolognesi and there we had no engine to generate light, so it was very difficult to attend births, I doubted if it was heroic or irresponsible, generally we took all precautions or we derive it to the clinic who had generator still attended many, many births in that remembered Center. One night came a recommended patient of another colleague who was called Odicio, Lady was Primeriza! with 3 cm of dilation and 0 of zest for collaboration, more or less, I suggested them a C-section but opposed Normal childbirth if they wanted or if, well have indicated you a serum to hydrate, after three hours, was with 4 cms dilated tell & iacute;! stimulate it!, with oxytocin Misoprostol was still unknown at 2 am he completed!, I joined the lambing, slept amid screams and usual defeat phrases I can not anymore!, help me doctor Por Favor! operate me doctorcito!, & n bsp; caused me to tell him I said since hours ago now suffers! but we the midwives are not such, we have to help our patients in all circumstances and despite all the setbacks and character, moods and emotions came the hour of the expulsive!, bid, bid when you have pain! Already not doctor hurts me then because no bid resting pain, pain there comes doctor – screaming woman – already well bid mamita, bid down! Get the two, bid, bid please! And so attempt after attempt to time passed to the 3.15 am, after a wide episiotomy managed to remove the fetus, born well, good Apgar and gave it to the pediatrician very well already relax! – I told him – I am now going to remove the placenta and then you suturare the wound and began when the suture BLACKOUT! do blackout? if BLACKOUT BLACKOUT! Oh God Mio! can not be!, but there was no time to lose the patient was bleeding and had to hurry, staff accompanying me put the batteries and quickly lit several candles approached them the perineum of the patient while I suturaba breathing smoke and amid great tension and even terror, not well appreciated the anatomical structures, used large gauze, bandages, that absorb the bleeding and move forward with the sutureI confess that I ended up amid great tension childbirth care. Which could fail, the patient could still bleeding, I thought that I could do a bruise, I wanted to take her to the Hospital but he was bleeding and my obligation was to stop this bleeding, suturing the episiotomy, and set him oxytocics and the? tero shrank, the bleeding was ceasing little by little, until it became normal I did not cease thanking God, how to not thank him? She was given high, in good condition. A week in your control I saw that I had a moderate dehiscence, indicated the proper treatment and after 15 days the scar had closed by second intention.
