The sixth floor is the maternity unit, where all women who are pregnant or giving birth are admitted. Each woman gets her own private room for check-ups and delivery, and is given the top of the line care and treatment. Women who are also trying to get pregnant or don't want to also come to this floor, taken care of by Aubree Dane who is the head of the unit.
She'd come up into the area and into the room they'd been directed into. She'd been having contractions for a while, and it was finally time to come in. Since they still had a little time they'd done the few pages of paperwork then been directed back to the room.
OOC: Also started the RP on your sandbox.

He was keenly aware of how nervous he was, but trying not to show it by staying busy instead. "Can I get you anything? How do you feel?" He asked Melinda while they waited for the Healer to come back.
She'd hesitate on that question. It hurt but she felt she could manage it. It was a matter of if she wanted to or not. She'd finally shake her head. "No...I'm ok for now." She could tough it out a while longer...sure.

"Are you sure, Melinda?" He asked, frowning.

"We can always administer pain potions later, too," Hope said with an easy smile to Eric. "I'll come by again in a bit to check on things."
She'd nod her voice firm but not harsh. "I know but right now I'm scared and in pain and tired. You've been a bit skittish and panicky since before Christmas. That was fine but today I need you to be calm." She'd lock eyes with him. "I need you to be strong and relaxed and understand when I'm screaming at you that I don't mean it. I need you to be able to help keep me calm because you being worried and overprotective is just going to upset me more and make this harder. Do you understand?"

His energy shifted from frenetic worry to gentle, but still overprotective, concern. "Melinda, you haven't said anything until now about being scared."
She'd frown. "After the baby's born I'll be exhausted as will the baby and we'll both probably sleep at least a couple hours. If you wanted to deliver the news in person you could...or get some sleep yourself since I'm sure not too long after we wake up people will be visiting."

"Then I'll sleep in here. But Melinda, I'm not leaving you and the baby."
