A couple was admitted when the mom-to-be started labor. Labor progressed nicely, and then it was time for delivery. She wasn't my patient, but I had interacted with the very nervous, excited father to be, answering his many questions, reassuring him that everything looked fine, etc. The doctor arrived and after about 10 minutes, I head this loud whoop come from the room. Not like what you would hear at a graduation, but a loud excited yell, you could say. A couple minutes later, the excited father emerged from the room, found his father and mother that were waiting in the hallway, grabbed his father and sobbed for he was so overjoyed that his child, his son was finally here. I couldn't stop the tears that came to my eyes. The pure overwhelming joy was evident. I was witness to the most "amazing moment" of this man's life. I've seen many overjoyed couples, families in my time in L&D but never to this extent. It was very touching, and I was honored I was able to witness that moment in this family's life.
This, my friends, is one reason I have the best career on the planet.
