Glorious title, glorious writing! So descriptive. Reads like it is your true experience - if so, whatever the interval of years that have passed, you have recaptured the experience and the emotions just beautifully.

I was right there with the MC witnessing this birth. I felt her tension and love the way she processed this experience as this story came to a close.
I particularly enjoyed this because it took me back to my student nursing days. I wasn't as fortunate as you. I had pneumonia and had to miss my rotation in the nursery and there were no labor patients on my L&D days. But I was grateful to receive a 3 week preceptor rotation during the winter break. that ended up securing me a job in OB right out of nursing school. I loved that job, it never (rarely) seemed like work. Thanks for the trip back to my happier days!
