Subject: [Leica] Ceasarean Sections...the Photographer's Downfall

My wife is an obstetrician who usually performs about fifteen percent of 180 
deliveries per year via caesarean section.  She believes that the surgery is 
harder on the fathers...who have not had epidural blocks...than on the 
mothers and the fathers often forget to photograph the procedure or have 
their heads down between their knees.  Smelling salts are kept in the 
delivery rooms for the dads, not for the moms.
