At the hospital Dr. Laver introduces Alice to the care of young babies. How will she cope?
|Dr. Laver:||Okay, well in this room we monitor the babies overnight. Now, the important thing is to talk to them.|
|Alice:||Talk to them? What do I say?|
|Dr. Laver:||Well, watch me. Hello, you are a handsome boy aren’t you? You’re gorgeous. Now you try. Speak to the baby next to you.|
|Alice:||Oh, okay. Hello little one! Who’s a handsome boy then?|
|Dr. Laver:||Erm, that’s a girl.|
|Alice:||Oh! Who’s a pretty little girl? What a lovely smile! Aren’t you lovely? Oh, oh, oh!|
|Dr. Laver:||Excellent, excellent – you’re a natural. You’ll make a very good nurse here and a lovely mother one day I’m sure.|
