(1/2) I cant find an answer anywhere on the internet, hopefully u can help. MC ends up going into labor during a blizzard and gives birth alone in a cave (never fear the queen’s guard finds them before they can freeze to death). The queen is passed out from exhaustion so cant help the guard “clean up the mess” who has no idea what to do w a fresh out the womb infant. the guard ends up having to cut the cord in order to dry and cover the baby up before it succumbs to the cold. The question: TBC

(2/2) …hope u can answer is this: bc the guard had no idea wtf he was supposed to do, he didnt tie or pinch the umbilical cord before/after cutting the umbilical cord. Would this harm the mother and/or baby? What would happen? (I forgot to say in the 1st part this is a nano q …

I am writing a story about family where the main character ends up pregnant with natural, identical quadruplets. After some research, I found she’s likely to need to give birth by C-section and is likely to develop preeclampsia. I can’t find a definite answer, but could she breast-feed all four children or will she need to supplement with formula? Especially if she suffered from preeclampsia? Thank you so much for your help!

She may be able to breastfeed, but honestly, with quadruplets, there are a few things that make me say “proooobably not?”  Most likely these kiddos are coming out early. “Normal” human gestation is 40 weeks (That’s ten months for those doing the math at home), though …

Okay, so in my book, one of my characters is shot in the head while pregnant. Her husband is a doctor; is it possible for him to successfully deliver the baby after her death?

Content warning: dead babies Okay, here’s the thing. What you’re asking about is a procedure called a peri-mortem C-section. It’s done when the mother is dying or VERY recently dead. It’s actually the only emergent surgery I know that has the potential to save two lives, not just one (though not in this case).  This …

Likeliness of it happening aside, what happens when one twin is born in the ambulance and one twin is born at the hospital? What does the EMT/hospital do here?

Hey there! This is actually a more common occurrence than you think.  First off, remember that twins don’t typically come out all tangled up in each other. Each birth is separate, and may be five minutes to an hour apart. Also, it’s possible for the first delivery to be uncomplicated, while the second birth might …
