Lovie talks about prenatal screening and how she only ever took on a woman expected to have a low-risk delivery. She also discusses trying to avoid first-time mothers, as they weren’t “nature-measured.” Lovie describes how she handled problem situations on the job, including a woman outside of Washington who developed convulsions due to extremely high blood pressure with the onset of labor. She also tells the story of transferring one woman from Aurora to the hospital due to an antepartum hemorrhage. The chapter concludes with her discussing the variety of ways a baby can been born breech, and how she handled a number of breech births, including one particularly memorable one in Campbells Creek. She also discusses how her training with Margaret Myles would come back to her in problem situations.
