First Day at Mercy

This is where I was working today doing observations and learning how to do prenatal exams with my aunt. It is busy with a lot of patients but I got to see a lot. I am learning how to measure fundal height (how big her tummy is) and find fetal heart rates. Tomorrow I'll be in the delivery room!

crazy streets...

Perfect afternoon snack. FRESH PINEAPPLE!


  1. Wow! That looks like fun! I love maternal health. Are you having culture shock?

  2. I'll give you a pedicure...when you get back. :)

  3. I am still enjoying everything about their culture, I'd say in a month I might be missin' me some Merica'

    Thanks Brittany but I'll let the professionals handle these feet when I get back...
