She extended her hand. "I'm Hope Finch," she said with a smile. "It's nice to meet you." She gestured to one of the chairs. "We don't have any patients right now, so we don't have anything to do. But I'd like to get to know you, and have you tell me what it is you already know, so I know what it is I need to teach you."

She shook her hand before sitting down, "It's nice to meet you too. I guess I'll start with a bit about me? I graduated from Hogwarts about 2 years ago and had decided to work in a tiny little shop for a bit before trying to work here. My years at school and those before were rather uneventful and not in the slightest bit important, I suppose." She shrugged, pausing to take a breath before continuing.

She nodded. "What made you want to be a Healer?" she asked. "I know these are all questions you probably heard in your interview. But I promise, you've been hired. This is just my way of getting to know you."

"As boring as it sounds, I wanted to help others. I would never be able to help others by teaching or anything like that and healing or treating those who were hurt, sick, or pregnant was my way of doing that, y'know, helping. If you don't mind me asking, why did you want to become one?"

"Similar reasons," she said with a warm smile. It was easier to say that, then mention Lucas. "So, what do you now about pregnancy?" she asked with a grin.

She gave the hint of a laugh, "Well, as a woman, you think I would know quite a bit, but I actually don't know that much. I know it lasts about 9 months and that you shouldn't drink alcohol or eat fish during that time. I'm actually not completely sure that fish thing is correct. I know mostly all of the symptoms though like cramps, dizziness, vomiting, mood swings, fatigue, food cravings and/or aversions, etc."

 – 05:03, June 11, 2015 (UTC)

"Raw fish," she said nodding. "And it's fine. Most women don't know much about pregnancy til they find they're pregnant themselves." She reached around and grabbed a couple of pamphlets and laid them in front of Julian. "These are the resources I usually give our ladies. One for each trimester... one on diet-- what's good to eat, and what to avoid."

 – 05:06, June 11, 2015 (UTC)

She nodded, picking up one of them, "I'll definitely look at these soon. Thank you." She looked back up at Hope, smiling still.

 – 05:07, June 11, 2015 (UTC)

She nodded. "I've got a couple of different ladies right now for prenatal care. I'll check with them to make sure it's okay to have a trainee observe some of their appointments. If it's okay, I'll start inviting you."

 – 05:14, June 11, 2015 (UTC)

She nodded, understanding why Hope would have to ask the patients, even if it would take her away from training sometimes if they didn't want her around. "Is that all, or do you have anymore questions?" She began gathering the pamphlets into a neat stack, glancing back up at her on occasion.

She thought for a moment, "How many patients do you currently have?"


Hope Black

Hope Black Hufflepuff Alumna - Head Healer at St. Mungo's
-"My family is my strength and my weakness."

 – 01:23, June 12, 2015 (UTC)~

"Three," she replied. "Two are due within a week of each other; the other a few weeks later."

She nodded, "How far along are they, if that isn't too confidential?"


Hope Black

 – 04:14, June 12, 2015 (UTC)~

"Not very," she said, leaving it at that.

 – 04:18, June 12, 2015 (UTC)

She nodded and figured she might as well change the subject, "So, what made you want to join the Maternity Unit?"


Hope Black

-"My family is my strength and my weakness."

 – 04:19, June 12, 2015 (UTC)~

She shrugged. "Necessity, more than anything. I could be anywhere, but I have experience here, and this is where I've ended up."

She nodded again in understanding, a smile still on her face as she remained quiet.

 – 04:33, June 12, 2015 (UTC)

"What would be your preference of floor to work on?" she asked.


Julian-Vandor1

Julian Vandor
-✩ Slytherin Alumna ✩ Training at St. Mungo's ✩

 – 04:40, June 12, 2015 (UTC)

"I had originally thought Potions and Plant Poisoning because I was so good at Potions back in school, but now I'm considering the Magical Bugs and Diseases floor."


Hope Black

Hope Black Hufflepuff Alumna - Head Healer at St. Mungo's
-"My family is my strength and my weakness."

 – 04:40, June 12, 2015 (UTC)

"What made you change your mind?" she asked with a smile.

 – 04:45, June 12, 2015 (UTC)

"I thought that I shouldn't stick with the same thing my whole life, y'know? I'm good at other things so I feel like not everything I do needs to be surrounded around potions completely. I know I would have to make potions and things, but..." She stopped, noticing that she might go off on a rant.


Hope Black

Hope Black Hufflepuff Alumna - Head Healer at St. Mungo's

 – 04:46, June 12, 2015 (UTC)~

She cocked her head slightly. "But what?"

 – 04:50, June 12, 2015 (UTC)

She gave a slight laugh, "I honestly don't know. As unintelligent as it probably sounds, I just can't find the right words."

She shook her head. "It's alright. Take as much time as you need."

Teal walks side by side with Benjamin to the sixth floor. The closer they get to the maternity unit the more visibly nervous she gets.

He gently reaches down and takes her hand, squeezing it. "It will be fine, Teal."

 – 03:00, June 15, 2015 (UTC)

She forces a smile on her face smile as she looks up at him. "I know. I know." She squeezes his hand back trying to convince herself he is right, and everything will be fine.

 – 03:02, June 15, 2015 (UTC)

They rounded the corner and sat down in the waiting room. "What is it you're nervous about?"



TealPSeawood

 – 03:05, June 15, 2015 (UTC)

She sighs softly. "Everything. What if I made a mistake before I knew I was pregnant? What if I've done something that caused permanent damage to our baby?" She brought her knuckle to her mouth and started to nibble it.

-“You may not control all the events that happen to you, but you can decide not to be reduced by them.”

Hope Black

-"My family is my strength and my weakness."

 – 03:07, June 15, 2015 (UTC)

She walked out with a smile that she managed to maintain despite seeing Benjamin and Teal-- together. She was just glad Mary had been told-- and been able to tell her. "How are we doing today?" she asked, the question clearly more directed at Teal.



TealPSeawood

-Love all, trust a few, do wrong to none.

 – 03:12, June 15, 2015 (UTC)

"I have no idea how to answer that." She tried to smile at Hope despite the ever growing anxiety. "Physically, I think I am getting the hang of morning sickness. Emotionally, I cannot stand all of these mood-swings. Sometime soon, I think might need to smash something."


Hope Black

Hope Black Hufflepuff Alumna - Head Healer at St. Mungo's
-"My family is my strength and my weakness."

 – 03:17, June 15, 2015 (UTC)

"Well, why don't you follow me back to the room so we can discuss that some more, and check to see that everything's on track with your little one."

-“You may not control all the events that happen to you, but you can decide not to be reduced by them.”

 – 03:17, June 15, 2015 (UTC)

He followed Teal and Hope back to the room, sitting down next to Teal, placing a hand supportively on her knee.


Hope Black

Hope Black Hufflepuff Alumna - Head Healer at St. Mungo's
-"My family is my strength and my weakness."

 – 03:17, June 15, 2015 (UTC)

Ignoring Benjamin's gesture for Teal, she focused her attention on her patient. "So how frequent is your morning sickness?"



TealPSeawood

Teal Seawood Floo-Pow manufacturer
-Love all, trust a few, do wrong to none.

 – 03:22, June 15, 2015 (UTC)

Teal looked down at Benjamin's hand on her knee and tapped on each of his knuckles before lacing her fingers with his as she spoke. "It comes and goes. I am getting use to the smells that made me sick those first few weeks. I can even eat and keep down some of the foods I was not able to look at a month ago. Some days. Some days I still have trouble keeping anything down. I read something about Hyperemesis gravidarum? Should I be worried about that?" She looked up at Hope pinching the corner of her lip pinched between her teeth.


Hope Black

Hope Black Hufflepuff Alumna - Head Healer at St. Mungo's
-"My family is my strength and my weakness."

 – 03:25, June 15, 2015 (UTC)

She raised her eyebrows. "It sounds entirely possible. Has your nausea or vomiting-- or both-- extended beyond just the morning hours?"



TealPSeawood

Teal Seawood Floo-Pow manufacturer
-Love all, trust a few, do wrong to none.

 – 03:27, June 15, 2015 (UTC)

There was clear fear in Teal's eyes the moment Hope spoke and she gripped Benjamin's hand tightly. "Yes. Yes, of course." She nodded. "I simply do not understand why it is called morning sickness. It happens whenever. It has not been as severe as it was. Should I still be concerned?"


Hope Black

Hope Black Hufflepuff Alumna - Head Healer at St. Mungo's
-"My family is my strength and my weakness."

 – 03:31, June 15, 2015 (UTC)

She saw the fear in her eyes, so Hope's held nothing but reassurance. "No," she said. "It's not very common, but it's completely treatable. And since we caught it early, your baby will be fine." She pulled out a pad of parchment and scribbled down a few things, handing it over to Teal. "Those are two prescriptions. One to replenish electrolytes-- something that you lose a lot of with excessive vomiting. The other is an anti-nausea potion. Hopefully those will knock the HG out of your system, so you can eat and drink things again."



TealPSeawood

Teal Seawood Floo-Pow manufacturer
-Love all, trust a few, do wrong to none.

 – 03:34, June 15, 2015 (UTC)

She accepted the parchment glancing down at it quickly before she looked back at Hope. "Even if I've been feeling better, eating and drinking at an almost normal rate I should take these either way? As a precaution?"


Hope Black

Hope Black Hufflepuff Alumna - Head Healer at St. Mungo's
-"My family is my strength and my weakness."

 – 03:37, June 15, 2015 (UTC)

"You can take the anti-nausea as needed, but you need to restore the electrolytes you lost," she said. "So take that one regularly. The prescription will last for a month. If you're still vomiting after a month, I'll give you another one. If you've stopped, then we don't need to continue it."



TealPSeawood

Teal Seawood Floo-Pow manufacturer
-Love all, trust a few, do wrong to none.

 – 03:42, June 15, 2015 (UTC)

"Thank you." She nodded before pinching the inside of her lip between her teeth again. "What about prenatal vitamins?"


Hope Black

Hope Black Hufflepuff Alumna - Head Healer at St. Mungo's
-"My family is my strength and my weakness."

 – 03:44, June 15, 2015 (UTC)

Another prescription. Hope continued to scribble on the parchment, ripping it off and handing it over. "Something else you can start," she said with a smile.



TealPSeawood

Teal Seawood Floo-Pow manufacturer
-Love all, trust a few, do wrong to none.

 – 03:48, June 15, 2015 (UTC)

"Thank you, again." She smiled taking the extra prescription. "Should I expect another for varicose veins?" She meant it as a joke, but she did fully expect to receive more parchment.


Hope Black

Hope Black Hufflepuff Alumna - Head Healer at St. Mungo's
-"My family is my strength and my weakness."

 – 03:49, June 15, 2015 (UTC)

She chuckled. "No, I can't say I have potions for that." She paused. "Is it a concern?"



TealPSeawood

Teal Seawood Floo-Pow manufacturer
-Love all, trust a few, do wrong to none.

 – 03:54, June 15, 2015 (UTC)

"Not entirely. I know there are more than a few natural remedies safe enough for me to use in my condition. Is there anything I should be watching out for?" She hesitated for a moment pinching the inside her bottom lip between her teeth. "Is my risk of miscarriage any lower despite my brush with HG?"


Hope Black

Hope Black Hufflepuff Alumna - Head Healer at St. Mungo's
-"My family is my strength and my weakness."

 – 03:56, June 15, 2015 (UTC)

"HG shouldn't have any bearing on your risk for miscarriage, unless it persisted into your second trimester. Miscarriage happens through a variety of factors.... medical history being one of them. Has anyone in your family had a history of it?"



TealPSeawood

Teal Seawood Floo-Pow manufacturer
-Love all, trust a few, do wrong to none.

 – 04:00, June 15, 2015 (UTC)

She turned to Benjamin first, before she looked back at Hope to answer. "I cannot answer that." She sighed softly. "I was abandoned by my family as an infant. My adoptive mother suffered though a few miscarriages when I was a child so I am familiar with ... it. From an external viewpoint. However. I do not know if it could be common in my biological family history."


Hope Black

Hope Black Hufflepuff Alumna - Head Healer at St. Mungo's
-"My family is my strength and my weakness."

 – 04:04, June 15, 2015 (UTC)

She smiled softly. "You're at ten weeks now. If your ultrasound today looks normal, your risk is only around three percent. At sixteen weeks, if everything is still normal, it's a once percent risk," she said calmly. "Unless you've been hiding a history of thyroid disease, lupus, or diabetes, or thrombophilias?" she asked with a bit of a smile.



TealPSeawood

Teal Seawood Floo-Pow manufacturer
-Love all, trust a few, do wrong to none.

 – 04:08, June 15, 2015 (UTC)

Teal could only shrug in response. Hope's last smile was not enough to stop Teal from pinching her bottom lip between her teeth once more. "Three percent is not bad. I think I can accept three percent." She looked to Benjamin and nodded at him then she looked at Hope again. "Did you say ultrasound? I thought we weren't due for another one of those for weeks? Or am I thinking sonogram?"


Hope Black

Hope Black Hufflepuff Alumna - Head Healer at St. Mungo's
-"My family is my strength and my weakness."

 – 04:11, June 15, 2015 (UTC)

"If you don't want an ultrasound, we don't have to do one. Sonogram is just the picture we can print for you."



TealPSeawood

Teal Seawood Floo-Pow manufacturer
-Love all, trust a few, do wrong to none.

 – 04:13, June 15, 2015 (UTC)

She nodded. "Yes. Yes, of course I want the ultrasound. That's the only way we can see in there. You said if everything is normal my risk three percent. How else can we know for sure?""


Hope Black

Hope Black Hufflepuff Alumna - Head Healer at St. Mungo's
-"My family is my strength and my weakness."

 – 04:14, June 15, 2015 (UTC)

"An ultrasound would show us signs of an ectopic pregnancy. Or other risks." She looked from Benjamin to Teal. "Teal, you really aren't at a risk of losing your child," she said gently.



TealPSeawood

Teal Seawood Floo-Pow manufacturer
-Love all, trust a few, do wrong to none.

 – 04:17, June 15, 2015 (UTC)

She nodded wanting to believe her. "You said three percent if my ultrasound was normal. If it wasn't normal would that then mean this is an ectopic pregnancy?"


Hope Black

Hope Black Hufflepuff Alumna - Head Healer at St. Mungo's
-"My family is my strength and my weakness."

 – 04:19, June 15, 2015 (UTC)~

"Why don't we see if it's normal before we start worrying about things," she suggested, gesturing over to the table.



TealPSeawood

Teal Seawood Floo-Pow manufacturer
-Love all, trust a few, do wrong to none.

 – 04:20, June 15, 2015 (UTC)

She smiled softly. "Too late for that, Hope. I was worried before I walked in."


Hope Black

Hope Black Hufflepuff Alumna - Head Healer at St. Mungo's
-"My family is my strength and my weakness."

 – 04:24, June 15, 2015 (UTC)

She smiled. "Do you want the ultrasound? Will that help?"



TealPSeawood

Teal Seawood Floo-Pow manufacturer
-Love all, trust a few, do wrong to none.

 – 04:26, June 15, 2015 (UTC)

She nodded. "If it isn't too early for one? I don't want a picture of that smudge of the screen that I saw last time." She smiled.


Hope Black

Hope Black Hufflepuff Alumna - Head Healer at St. Mungo's
-"My family is my strength and my weakness."

 – 04:27, June 15, 2015 (UTC)

She shook her head. "Lots happens between six and ten weeks. Your baby is no longer an embryo-- it's a fetus."



TealPSeawood

Teal Seawood Floo-Pow manufacturer
-Love all, trust a few, do wrong to none.

 – 04:30, June 15, 2015 (UTC)

"I was calling her...him? I was calling the little one a fetus at six weeks. Did it make a difference to you to use the proper terms?"


Hope Black

Hope Black Hufflepuff Alumna - Head Healer at St. Mungo's
-"My family is my strength and my weakness."

 – 04:32, June 15, 2015 (UTC)

She shook her head. "The baby is your little one. Fetus is just a technical term," she said. She looked at Benjamin, hoping her features were smooth. "You'll get to hear the heartbeat for the first time."

He nodded, trying to maintain professionalism around Hope. "I'd like that."


Hope Black

Hope Black Hufflepuff Alumna - Head Healer at St. Mungo's
-"My family is my strength and my weakness."

 – 04:32, June 15, 2015 (UTC)

She gestured to Teal, and the examining table.



TealPSeawood

Teal Seawood Floo-Pow manufacturer
-Love all, trust a few, do wrong to none.

 – 04:36, June 15, 2015 (UTC)

Teal took the cue from Hope. She positioned herself on the examination table and she exposed her very slight baby bump.


Hope Black

Hope Black Hufflepuff Alumna - Head Healer at St. Mungo's
-"My family is my strength and my weakness."

 – 04:39, June 15, 2015 (UTC)

She crossed over to her, applying the goop from before and sticking her wand in it, murmuring spells. The heartbeat would once again be audible-- stronger this time-- as Hope looked around for changes she could point out.

-“You may not control all the events that happen to you, but you can decide not to be reduced by them.”

 – 04:39, June 15, 2015 (UTC)

He crossed over, standing near Teal's head, his heart stopping momentarily when he heard the heartbeat. That was a.... person. Growing. His.... He was both awed, and incredibly terrified all at the same time.



TealPSeawood

-Love all, trust a few, do wrong to none.

 – 04:43, June 15, 2015 (UTC)

Teal looked up at Benjamin and smiled. Hearing that thumping sound for the second time was just as life changing as it was the first time. It was so much louder now. She looked at her belly, then at Hope. "Do you.... do you see anything... anything wrong?"


Hope Black

Hope Black Hufflepuff Alumna - Head Healer at St. Mungo's
-"My family is my strength and my weakness."

 – 04:45, June 15, 2015 (UTC)

She shook her head. "Nope," she said. "Everything is right on track." She moved her wand to get the picture where she wanted it. "See that right there?" she pointed. "That is your baby's teeny tiny little fingers forming."



TealPSeawood

Teal Seawood Floo-Pow manufacturer
-Love all, trust a few, do wrong to none.

 – 04:48, June 15, 2015 (UTC)

She inhaled then exhaled a long, slow sigh of relief dropping her head back on to the table and closing her eyes for a moment imagining that healthy little baby and the newly forming tiny little fingers she ... or he now had."


Hope Black

Hope Black Hufflepuff Alumna - Head Healer at St. Mungo's
-"My family is my strength and my weakness."

 – 04:51, June 15, 2015 (UTC)

She let the ultrasound go a little longer, before fading it out, and cleaning the goop off of Teal's stomach. "Everything is as it should be."



TealPSeawood

Teal Seawood Floo-Pow manufacturer
-Love all, trust a few, do wrong to none.

 – 04:55, June 15, 2015 (UTC)

She slowly started to smile. "Thank you." All those little things that bothered her, nagging her all day long were still there. Those six words for the time being made her worries seem less important than her mind would allow her to believe they were.

 – 05:03, June 15, 2015 (UTC)

She shook her head. "No. Give me another month, and I'll have a whole slew of new worries for you." Teal looked to Benjamin wondering if he had any questions for Hope. "Do you?"

-Love all, trust a few, do wrong to none.

 – 05:08, June 15, 2015 (UTC)

"Thank you again, Hope." She nodded giving her a small smile. "Hearing that heartbeat again, and knowing it wasn't mine actually made me feel a lot better. I feel... I feel like I haven't scared my unborn child for life now."


Hope Black

Hope Black Hufflepuff Alumna - Head Healer at St. Mungo's
-"My family is my strength and my weakness."

 – 05:11, June 15, 2015 (UTC)

"Of course," she said. She knew there was nothing Teal could do to scare her child. But she didn't mention that. "Feel free to stay as long as you need. I'll clean up here. You can stop by reception and get those prescriptions filled, and schedule your next appointment."

Teal nodded and covered her belly while biting her tongue to keep herself from saying thank you yet again.

He nodded to Hope as she left and he crossed over to Teal, his expression unreadable as he tried to pick apart what it was he was feeling.

She rubbed her hands on her knees as she sat upright looking at Benjamin square in the eye. "That looks exactly how I felt the first time around." She pointed to his face. "I wish I could show you how you look right now."

He smiled weakly at her. He walked up to her, gently placing his hand on her arm. "How are you feeling?"

She took a breath and exhaled. "Better. Hope said everything was on track. I do not think I could have asked for anything more than that." She pinched her bottom lip between her teeth seeing that his expression had not changed much. "How are you feeling about all this now?"

"I'm not sure that can be answered right now," he said, letting out a slow breath.

"What I'm certain of, is that I love you. And that I will do anything I can do to help you."

She shook her arm free of his grip then grabbed his hand with her own giving him a gentle squeeze. "I love you too."

She'd knock softly on the Floor's Office, knowing Hope should be there.

She smiled at Alex when she opened the door. "Can I do something for you?"

She'd nod, coming in and closing the door behind her. "Yes actually. I heard you scheduled an interview and hired a new healer. I didn't realize Mary had asked you to..." She'd still have a smile on her face.

She shrugged. "Mary didn't... He used to work here, and was on Sabbatical for awhile... worked at Hogwarts for a few years..." She paused. "I think he requested to interview with me, even though I'd never seen him before. Maybe because I'm working in his old area? I guess he used to work on the Maternity Unit."

She'd smile. "So...should we let Mary know she has a new employee, or is he working for you?"

"Let Mary know," she said nodding. "He's working on the Plants and Poison unit." She paused. "Have you seen Mary lately?"

She'd nod. "She's been doing a lot more of the administration part of being Head Healer lately...and has been at the Ministry as much as here. In fact, that's one of the reasons I thought we should talk."

"What's she been doing at the Ministry...?"

"While the Hospital is privately funded, we have to have Ministry support. We use a lot of things here that are regulated or untradeable for good reasons, and we have to at least keep them aware of what sort of materials we have here that are restricted. We're actually pretty closely tied to the Ministry, even if we do our best not to let their politics affect our operations."

"So... she's been taking up more time than usual to secure these things?"

"Amoung other things. I know she was also meeting with someone from the Department of Mysteries to see if any of their new spells or discoveries, etc had healing applications." She'd shrug. "...but reguardless, I wanted to talk to you more about Mary not being here than what she's doing."

She'd smile. "Well...you could have easily come to me and let me do the interview and hire our new healer...or not as the case might have been. You didn't though...why?"

She shrugged. "Like I said, I think he asked to interview with me specifically, and I just didn't see the harm in it."

She'd nod. "Exactly. I think maybe you should start taking on a bit more of the responsibilities here while Mary's dealing with the Ministry, and take the Assistant Head Healer job. It's been a while since we had one, and you seem to want to step up anyway."
