17,000th baby!

17,000, I think that has to be the size of Morehead, KY (with school is session )

That is a lot of babies! I was glad I was on shift for this memory.

Baby # 17,000 came in style. Momma came in and reported "36" weeks. We don't take women unless they are at least 37 weeks. She also didn't have her Hep screening which is a big no no at the clinic. We were rushing to get her transported when she (and the baby) decided to push. 1 minute later "baby out". Baby looked healthy and the midwifes stayed safe with shoulder length gloves on.
