Doctor In The House (1946)

`So do I,' I said.
I wondered what on earth I was going to do.
There was, however, one standby that I had thoughtfully taken the trouble to carry. I turned into the corner furthest away from the mother and looked as if I was waiting confidently for the precise time to intervene. Out of my hip pocket I drew a small but valuable volume in a limp red cover-The Student's Friend in Obstetrical Difficulties. It was written by a hard-headed obstetrician on the staff of a Scottish hospital who was under no illusions about what the students would find difficult. It started off with `The Normal Delivery'. The text was written without argument, directly, in short numbered paragraphs, like a cookery book. I glanced at the first page.
`Sterility,' it said. `The student must try to achieve sterile surroundings for the delivery, and scrub-up himself as for a surgical operation. Newspapers may be used if sterile towels are unobtainable, as they are often bacteria-free.'
Newspaper, that was it ! There was a pile of them in the corner, and I scattered the sheets over the floor and the bed. This was a common practice in the district, and if he knew how many babies were born yearly straight on to the Daily Herald Mr Percy Cudlip would be most surprised.
There was a knock on the door, and grandma passed through an enamel bowl of boiling water.
`Is it come yet, doctor?' she asked.
`Almost,' I told her. `I shall need lots more water.'
I put the bowl down on the table, took some soap and a brush from the bag, and started scrubbing.
`Oh, doctor, doctor ...!' cried the mother.
`Don't get alarmed,' I said airily.
`It's coming, doctor!'
