New Year’s Eve on a maternity ward can be filled with lots of fun and excitement. I remember one year when I was charge nurse our hospital had the first baby of the New Year. My patient beat another mother by just a few minutes. I remember another year when a patient and her husband called the entire staff into her room for a champagne toast at midnight. All of us declined until the end of the shift when we were off duty. There were many a time when we would go from room to room and wish everyone a Happy New Year wearing our New Year’s hats and blowing party whistles. I wonder what it will be like this year. Usually after midnight, the phone calls would come in from other hospitals to see if any patient was close to delivering. Sometimes the other hospitals would call to say that they had the first baby. My wish for all mothers on New Year’s Eve is this…..May you be blessed.
