You are en-route to your clinic after a hurried lunch, and witness a patient being wheeled in just in front of you.\n\nGrumbling to yourself, you enter your office.\n\nYou mood immediately brightens as you see that it is Samantha, your friend from high school.\n\n\u0022Hey ...

Her blood group is O+ (positive).\n\nShe experienced a sudden gush of clear fluid just 2 hours ago.\n\nThere was no history of fever, or a foul smelling vaginal discharge; nor has she experienced contractions.\n\nA cardiotocogram appears completely normal, while an ultrasound scan shows a singleton female fetus with adequate growth.\n"}]}

My husband is out of the country, and there is no-one else to take care of my 4 year old stepdaughter\u0022\n\n\u0022I live just 10 minutes away. I can quickly drive over if necessary\u0022, she adds.\n"}]}
