Peering up from a tablet, the labor and delivery nurse looked at me and asked my first and last name. Then, she looked at my husband. “What’s his first name? Last name?” She asked. I responded, “The same as mine…he’s my husband” in a confused tone. She explained that we were rare guests at the hospital. That years ago, when she first became a nurse it was very odd to have an unmarried woman giving birth. However now, having a married couple on the labor unit was the rare occurrence. Then was a culture shock! Now, it makes me feel a bit special on Holidays and there are great ways to celebrate!
