All In A Day's Work...

Ok, you have been warned, this is a total. TOTAL. Snarf Post.

""The father had the baby in his hands. Our guys grabbed their obstetrical kit from the rescue, they wrapped the baby, they clamped off the umbilical cord and as [hospital ambulance] arrived, they told them to cut the cord.""

Ok... so... what did they do?

C'mon, don't you all feel SO SAFE now? I mean, after a completely (evidently) safe unassisted 'emergency' birth, the firefighters WHISKED in and saved the day by....

by...

lets see.....


Taking a newborn from his/her father's hands (interrupting early bonding that was going nicely, it seems)....

and then....

Clamped off the cord, then cut it.... even though there is medically no reason to so early........

Hmmm...

and then whisked them off to a hospital to have mom and baby poked and prodded, newborn family bonding interrupted with no good reason and time that cannot be reclaimed...

I. feel. so. THANKFUL that medical help arrived JUST in the nick of time!

Snarf.....


(BTW, Linds, your husband is a gem, nothing against him)...

I have a few choice words about the 'paramedics'... but I'll save them for the article itself.
Snarf away! I'm off to bash my head against the wall some more.
