Once again I've got to point everyone to another blog because of the power of the story. I have no idea who these two young doctors are (other than from their blog) but they've got great perspective. In this installment they've retold an elders story of giving birth in a frozen hut during the dead of winter. It's very powerful. The book they reference is called Saqiyuk and the link to the re-told story is at Adventures in Medicine.
