After sending a Patronus to Ferlen, she made her way to the sixth floor, waiting for Hope and taking deep breaths.

She hustled up to the floor-- thank goodness she'd been here anyway, working on a different floor. Thirty-four weeks along... she was certainly early. She had a calm smile for Teresa. "Hi Teresa," she said. "How are you feeling?"
"I sent him a Patronus," she replied, standing with some effort. "The baby is early...."

She helped Teresa over to a private room, and helped her to get up on the bed, and get herself comfortable. She knew the baby was early. She also knew there was a slight risk for infection, and other complications at this stage.
Her thoughts were still mostly in Polish. She tried to pull herself back to English. "Sorry... what's going to happen now?"

"We'll wait for Ferlen. There are some choices the two of you will have to make together. For now... you likely won't start feeling contractions for several hours at the earliest. So just do what you can to rest. I know it isn't easy."
She nodded. "You do," she agreed, lying her head down on the pillow. Her thoughts started to turn a bit French as she replayed what had happened with Renee at the safe house, her eyes on the door as she waited for Ferlen.

"If there's anything I can do to make you feel more comfortable, let me know," she said with a comforting smile.
He would frown, confused. "Options?" He would glance at Teresa, then look at Hope. "Ummmm, come again?"

"Because you're thirty four weeks along, there is a chance for complications and infection if you deliver naturally. Your contractions haven't started yet, so one option for you is we have a potion that will delay your labor as long as possible, to give your baby a little more time to grow. The other option, if you decide not to delay labor, would be your choice of birth. At this stage, it's not recommended to have a natural birth, but to do a Cesarean section."
OOC: That's what I found online when I was looking last night. If none of that is accurate... tell me :P

She made a note on Teresa's chart. "I'll be right back," she said, slipping out of the room, and coming back a few moments later with the potion. "Drink that," she said, handing it to Teresa, glancing at the clock and making more notes.
She had met Hope in the hallway and spoken to her briefly, coming into the room behind her. "Hi. How are you doing?" she said with a smile, setting down the bag and looking at Ferlen as much as Teresa.
She chuckled a little as she thought through the day- now she was de-stressed enough to think it all through. "I think Ashley went a bit into shock after my water broke, and she realized what was going on."
"Renee wanted to go back to the safe house- to go back to the pool and come to terms with all that had happened. She asked Ashley and I to go with her. She... had a bit of a breakdown in the end. Ashley ended up bringing Renee to her therapist while I headed for this floor."
"I'm not completely sure why she wanted me there... except that I had talked with her a few days before, and told her that I understood her need for space, and how it was hard to handle so many people offering support. I think she appreciated that."
"She was okay for awhile, walking around and all... but soon she entered into a flashback, and...." She paused, trying to figure out how to describe the rest. "She made a dive for the pool, and between my physical restraint and Ashley's magical restraint, we got her away. She tried again- my water broke- and Ashley got her good and restrained. She helped Renee gain back control, and we all headed for the hospital."
