About understanding foreign doctors:

It took me more than six months of living in Ireland before I understood most casual conversation in the heart of Dublin–and I speak English as my first language. I figured I had to train my ears to the accents.

Then I started visiting Cork and the process started all over again.

Imagine the plight of the foreign doctors who can read and write English to a higher level than most bloggers. For my part, I can understand every piece of advice giving by the Scot and the Brit attending our pregnancy. And I’ve never considered them foreign doctors.
