Gemma had just returned to labour ward for her second year placement, her previous labour ward placements having been on a midwife-led unit. The consultant-led unit was a busy place dealing with much more problematic deliveries, none of which Gemma had experienced before. She was involved in the case of a teenager presenting to labour ward, in labour, from community. There was some concern over the well-being of the baby and on arrival it was confirmed he had died. Gemma wanted to reflect on this, but found it difficult to do so. Instead, she writes below a post she made on the university's Blackboard site, asking for a boost from her fellow student midwives and some perspective on being a student midwife.
