I am sure each and every labor nurse has had some part of their body taken hold of by a woman in labor. I have had my hands, arms, waist, and just recently my boob grabbed at in some form of pain or desperation.
Normally I let the woman hold on to me without much ado, but if they start hurting me then I tell them to let go. For instance, the woman who hated me, Kelly, would have ground all of my metacarpals of my hand together if I let her.
But the boob was weird. It occurred with each push, and as she continued to hold on with each push she grabbed on tighter and tighter. She had the whole girth of my boob in her hand, and no matter how I positioned myself the two seemed to meet. The problem was that I couldn’t exactly move away a great deal as I was assisting in her positioning. I also didn’t want to call attention to it. From what I could tell no one else noticed that my boob was in her grasp, so I wanted to keep it that way.
I also wondered if she realized what she was grabbing. Did she think she had my upper arm (they are equally as squishy)? Or did she know what she held on to?
