Baby Number One

Second job of the night is a two day old baby that coughed up 'something white'. It's an easy job where the parent carries a healthy baby into the ambulance, I drive it 800 yards and the local hospital provides reassurance.Forgiveness is also due because the birth was difficult and the baby was born two weeks early. Although there is some negative marking for thinking that baby '…needed suctioning for amniotic fluid still in the lungs'.
I'd just like to say that my (female) crewmate finds babies cute.
I don't.

  1. “I'd just like to say that my (female) crewmate finds babies cute.”It's not her fault, Tom, it's pre-programmed. At 44 with no ambitions for a family I still find it difficult not to cluck and coo over the ugliest little purple maggot. My hardwired female brain just says they are _cute_ little ugly purple maggots…

  2. I'm a 36yr old female and I rarely cluck over babies. I think someone broke my maternal instinct, or replaced it with one belonging to a cat, because kittens make me wibble…

  3. I'm 37 and with you on the .. female and I rarely cluck over babies. I think someone broke my maternal instinct.. though the kitten thing, no. Cool injuries to treat, yes. (had a lovely fractured in two places pelvis the other week.)
