Sorry for the delay, but very good distractions. Perhaps this post will explain why. It’s amazing how the look of hospitals are the same throughout the world. This was taken in a patient’s room at the Frauenkinkik in Munich, but it could have easily been taken anywhere. With that said, it’s interesting how delivering a baby in the US is different than in Munich. Here are three very specific examples: 1. The lock down on security that exists in the states doesn’t exist in many places in Europe. 2. The role of mid-wives is paramount in Germany and they deliver babies as doctors stand back and engage only in emergencies. 3. And the checkout was a breeze. Once the doctor says it’s OK, then no other protocol necessary – not even a check whether you have a proper car seat. Let’s hear it for personal responsibility. Everything in between, felt like the same ol butter and bread.
