My wife was a nurse, 31 years in the nursery.... Some very weird stories come out of there.Go work in the maternity ward. There are some seriously weird things people do and say in there. Along with the moms, you can have dudes, small kids, grandmothers watching. And of course the mom's tattoos which turnout to be prophetic or just a statement of the caliber of family the child is being born into. It can be unnerving when the patient's family is more foul mouthed than the nurses, including grandma. I asked one of the lead nurses once about why certain ethnic groups have the entire herd in there during the whole event, she replied with the appropriate hand waiving and sarcasm "to protect the vagina!" And yes, people DO fall asleep in there.
