I’m Your Baby Tonight

I’ll never forget the afternoon my wife’s doctor stormed into the delivery room (after about 10 hours of our deep breathing) and said, “OK, I have dinner party in Mill Valley at 6:30 and there’s no way I’m gonna be late.” While the statement may have been unique, its sentiment was not. Pacific Standard finds that doctors seem to schedule births so they can make it home for dinner. (Update: The doctor made it home in time for the party and my son is pitching in his little league game tomorrow.)
