So, funny story about this picture. I went to a Medical Camp back in 2011 just for kicks and giggles. You know those stupid, creepy simulators? Well, they can also have babies. So they asked who wanted to deliver a “baby.” I volunteer myself. Delivering a plastic baby, how hard could it be? They start the simulation and I see the crown. The mother starts screaming, “OH MY GOD I THINK I’M TEARING!” The “OB/GYN” says to pull gently on the shoulders. I start doing that and after 5 minutes of failure and simulated screaming, he reaches in himself and literally YANKS the baby out. I kind of had a heart attack. So many questions about childbirth.
