Doctor In The House (1946)

`The frightful women!' he said heatedly, as he tried to cram a pile of textbooks into his case.
`How many babies have you had?' I asked.
`Forty-nine. That includes a couple of Caesars. I'd have made a half-century if I hadn't missed a B.B.A.'
`B.B.A.?'
'Born before arrival. Terrible disgrace for the midder clerk, of course. I reckoned I'd have time for my lunch first, and when I got there the blasted thing was in the bed. However, mother and child did well, so I suppose no real harm was done. Don't try and open the window, it's stuck. I'm going out. Best of luck.'
Picking up his bag he left, the latest penitent for the sin of Adam.
I sat on the bed, feeling depressed. It was an unusually raw afternoon in November and the sky hung over the rooftops in an unbroken dirty grey sheet. There was no fire in the room and the pipes emitted flatulent noises but no heat. The only decoration was a large black-and-white map of the district on which some former student had helpfully added the pubs in red ink. I looked out of the window and saw a few flakes of snow--ominous, like the first spots of a smallpox rash. I wished women would go away and bud, like the flowers.
The three of us reported to the senior resident obstetrical officer, a worried-looking young man whom we found in the ante-natal clinic. This clinic was part of the St Swithin's service. Every Thursday afternoon the mothers came and sat on the benches outside the clinic door, looking like rows of over-ripe poppy-heads. The obstetrical officer was absently running his hands over an abdomen like the dome of St Paul's to find which way up the baby was.
