That is the dialogue held yesterday Sandro Sotelo, a neighbor of the hope forest Street, and the official civil communications (Cenco) Central of Carabineros, Muriel González, a mother of two children, who returned four days ago to work after your postnatal. You have eight weeks of pregnancy.
It was very intense, Muriel?

Yes, since the start of the call to the birth must have been 5 minutes. During this period, it is impossible to get someone (emergency).
Had he played him something in his career?

What happened to you when you heard to cry to the bus?

I was nervous (laughs), because independent to that one already has children the situation is complex, because if there is a problem there is always be there pending to follow the steps.
Nerve concerned or joy?

Do you think that being a mother and being pregnant gave him with a special flair to address this?

It makes that call is different because as I am pregnant I put me in the situation… the idea was to take it in the best possible way.
He did signs based on what I knew or their maternal experience?

The truth is that we empower the enter, give us indications for certain types of procedures, but it is very rare to pass this. Sometimes when one does not practice the things you forget certain steps, but actually it was a little easier because having two children is a subject which one handles better, although the situation was complicated.
What were the risks that had to give birth at home?

That the baby was born with asphyxia, which can be the umbilical cord around his neck, or mother wins not enough and the baby is stuck in the pipeline. They are that if the person who is handling the situation is not calm are difficult to deal with.
It helped that the Pope was quiet?

Yes, quite. Support because you follow instructions, manages to stay calm in the situation and calm the mother.
Have his superiors told him something?

Yes, I have complimented on how quickly, how took the procedure.
Any advice for someone who is a situation like this limit?
