Holding tight

We’ve all converged onto the birthing center of the Cooley-Dickinson hospital where w found Sita attached to diverse monitors that made the place look more like a hospital than a birth center.It wasn’t quite what they had had in mind.

After some intense chemically induced contractions they unhooked her from the chemical drip so that she could have a good night sleep before proceeding.

We said goodbye to the exhausted couple and installed ourselves, including the doula, in their house. Tomorrow we promised to show up again at the birth center, early in the morning when the more potent labor inducing drug will be dripped into Sita’s arm.
