A Tale of Two Babies

My wife gave birth to our first child Sunday at the Brigham and Women’s Hospital. What a great institution. The nurses were smart, empathetic, and good-humored. Our obstetrician was the best, most mindful physician I’ve ever met, Dr. Tracy Zinner. Simply outstanding.
This woman was admitted a few hours after our daughter was born. The local news jumped all over the Brigham adminisitration for sending her home, but I’m not sure what they should have done differently. She wasn’t having contractions. They sent her home until she started steady contractions. Instead, several hours later, she gave birth on her bathroom floor at home. Every pregnant woman’s nightmare, but not exactly the hospital’s fault.
