“Ready?” the obstetrician asked as he turned his head towards me, his body still facing the mother. He was looking directly at me at that point, so I just nodded, and with his arm in position, he entered the mother and pierced the membranes to expedite the delivery.”
This is a collection of short stories about the life of a doctor who cares for extremely premature infants. As the stories unfold, we learn about the challenges that she faced as she began to practice in her field and how she ultimately fulfilled her goal of developing specialized units for the extremely premature newborn. Along the way, we get to know more about her family, lovers, and friends. We meet the nurses and respiratory therapists that provided the care, and we learn about the “scorpions,” the obstacles that lay in wait to derail the process along the way. $4.50 on Kindle.
