Author's Notes: Written for Challenge 530: Birth / Berth at dw100.

Summary: Rory's professional services are required.

“I’m a nurse, not a midwife!” Rory protested. “Different skillset, not to mention… alien! I don’t know the first thing about her physiology! I don’t even know if the baby comes out the same way!”

“Oh don’t fuss! You probably won’t need to do anything, Lagonians almost never have problems during birth, but it’s traditional for someone to be in attendance.”

“So why don’t you do it?”

“I’m the Doctor, not a nurse. You’ll do fine; just keep out of the way. You don’t want her accidentally rolling on you.”

Eying the massive alien, Rory nodded. “I can do that.”
