Overview

10,000 Babies: My life in the delivery room by SILVIO ALADJEM MD

"10,000 Babies" is a compilation of true events in the life of an obstetrician and his patients, presented as short stories. Some may bring a smile others a tear. Anyone who has a child, whether a mother or a father, will not remain indifferent. These stories range from those of the very early pregnancy, to the birth of triplets, from the anguish of not knowing if the baby will be born prematurely, to the unusual case where a mother thought that she was pregnant, when in reality she was not. Those that have not yet become parents or are already parents, will find in “10,000 Babies” a world they did not know existed. Sometime in the future, they may even relive many of those stories.
Also included are chapters about the history of how we got where we are in the care of pregnant women, how different cultures influence childbirth, why myths surrounding pregnancy are still with us, and why those that care for pregnant women are a special breed of people.

This book is amazing! Lots of great stories written with much compassion and understanding by what seems to be a very experienced obstetrician. He explains everything really well and tells funny stories, and stories that will tug at your heart. I loved it and each story is so unique.
