Added number ten to the Blooper Page:
10) I was the first to arrive at a homebirth. When I walked in, I noticed all the signs of labor: childbirth books open on the floor, half-eaten dinner on the table, hypnosis script playing, tub full of water. But I did not find signs of the couple. I searched every room in the house. Looked in the backyard and garage. Called out, “hellooooo?” Where were they? Ambulance transport? I called the midwife who was on her way and said, “What is going on??” She was as shocked as I was. Then the dad pokes his head down the stairs and waves. I hang up with the midwife and rush upstairs. And still couldn’t find them!! Looked in all the rooms again. Turns out I was standing three feet away (twice!) but didn’t see them in a tiny space around a corner. P.S. she had her baby an hour after I walked in the house.
