Since I have been in training we have only had 1 transport. The mother was VERY prepared and she labored well but couldn't seem to get past a certain point. There was just a feeling that something was off and it was agreed to go to the hospital. It ended up being a good transport with a C - section performed due to fetal distress. The reasons for this distress were discovered after the section and had to do with the placenta. It was one of those birth things that happen. You don't know the reason. But the birth is kept from happening and everyone there can just feel that medical attention is a good idea. It just gives me chills! Babies KNOW what they are doing!
