Kara Schafer: After the baby is born, we immediately -- well, it all depends on physician. Sometimes the physician will put baby on mom's chest, have mom her baby for a few minutes. That would only happen really if, depending on the physician. But if the baby looks good, it's crying, it's something -- some of the physicians like to just immediately take baby over to what we call the higher bed. This is the higher bed over here. It's in every room and in every ward. And then what we do, there are is a couple of nurses in there at delivery, whether it's a scissorian or a vaginal delivery, we stimulate baby to cry, listen to breast sounds, make sure there is not a lot of fluid in the lungs. And we will suction the baby if we need, we'll give oxygen to baby if we need to, basically just trying to get baby stable. [Cross Talk: 00:50:00 - 00:02:38] Male Speaker: And mom you just delivered.
