- Panic attacks
- Relaxation therapy
- Vaginal delivery
Susan was at the practice to have the birth of her baby induced. She had a history of panic attacks, for which Pete had treated her. Violet coached her while she labored, assuring her she could do it. When the time came to push, Susan began to panic, saying she couldn't do it. Addison and Pete tried to calm her down, but she was hyperventilating, putting the baby at risk, so Addison climbed into the birthing pool behind her and talked to her through the delivery.
- Doctors/Medical Personnel:
- Vaginal delivery
Ashley came into the practice for an exam, but Addison said she was in labor, so she kept her there to deliver. Naomi took over so that Addison could be with Susan and then told Dell to monitor her until she got to four centimeters while she helped Sam deliver Kelly's baby over the phone. Ashley then warned him that the baby was coming, so he called Naomi, but the baby was there by the time Naomi arrived. When the baby was a boy instead of the girl she was expecting, Ashley refused to look at her son, so Naomi asked Violet to talk to her. The doctors then supported her while she talked to her husband about helping out more with their kids.
- Gunshot wound
- Sam Bennett (internist)
Damon had been shot in the leg. Sam was called to Circus Liquor to treat him. Sam said it was a flesh wound and applied pressure to the area.
- Shoulder dystocia
- Vaginal delivery
Kelly went into labor while holding hostages at gunpoint at a convenience store. Sam called Naomi to help him deliver the baby. Sam used supplies from the convenience store along with his kit to prepare for the birth. When she started pushing, the head delivered, but the rest of the baby didn't follow, so Sam called Naomi back, who said it was shoulder dystocia and he needed to release the shoulder quickly. She told him how to do it and he did it and her baby was successfully delivered.
- Facial lacerations
- Facial bruising
- Naomi Bennett (reproductive endocrinologist)
Sam was hit in the head with a gun while helping Kelly deliver her baby. When he got back to the practice at the end of the day, Naomi checked out his wounds.
