Zhang Fang draws an intimate portrait of Gao, who after losing seven patients in one night quit her job as an obstetrics surgeon to become an obstetrics instructor. Gao now teaches classes for pregnant women in a Beijing hospital. Gao is a patient and devoted instructor who understands the feelings of pregnant women. Her own baby daughter is looked after by Gao’s parents, who live in Hebei. Gao chooses her job over raising her daughter herself, because this way she can take care of many more babies. As Gao knows and doctors relate in the feature, obstetrics education in China needs improvement. Zhang Fang’s feature reveals that government as well as society should attach more importance to obstetrics education.
