Publisher's Summary

There are only three things in this world that are certain: death, taxes, and babies. Nobody knows this truth better than Emily McCoy, a third-year resident working in Baby City, the affectionate nickname for the busy Labor and Delivery unit at a New York City hospital. On a typical day in Baby City, Emily delivers more babies than the number of hours of sleep she manages to squeeze in that night. And definitely more than the number of dates she's been on since she started her training in OB/GYN two years earlier. As Emily works tirelessly to safely herald baby after baby after baby (after baby) into the world, she becomes well acquainted with the three hard facts of Baby City:
1. Babies never come when you want them to.
2. Babies always come when you don't want them to.
3. You don't know who your true friends are until your baby is sliding down the birth canal.

Reads like fiction, still interesting

What did you love best about Baby City?

The variety of cases that were covered, easy to follow, and the side stories of personal relationship stuff was a bonus.

Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Lori Moran?

Her "normal" speaking voice was okay. It was when she did "voices"...aghhhhh. Especially "Ted". If he had been a main character, I could not have finished the book.

Any additional comments?

Great story that could really be real

Interesting, funny and sad story thats true to life. Never worked in OB, but the life of the hospital, residents, patients , and attendings rings very true to life in my experience. The narrator is different and excellent and adds a punch to it all. I loved listening to her.
If you want a good story that's not BS based like TV and the the authors of "medical thrillers", this is it. This is the third time in a little more than a year that i am enjoying listening to this book. Dr Stoddard nailed it.
