(SOT:)(RUBIO) “HOW IS HILLARY CLINTON GONNA LECTURE ME ABOUT LIVING PAYCHECK TO PAYCHECK?

(LAUGHS)” MEANTIME GOVERNOR SCOTT WALKER DID NOT MAKE ANY BIG HEADLINE LAST NIGHT… RATHER STICKING CLOSE TO THE RIGHT… AND SPOKE ABOUT HIS RELIGIOUS BELIEFS. WALKER SAID HE HAS TRIED TO ACT AS GOD WANTED HIM TO AS HE’S TAKEN DIFFICULT POLITICAL ACTIONS DURING HIS GOVERNORSHIP. THE HIGHEST-RANKING MINNESOTA REPUBLICAN IS THROWING HIS SUPPORT BEHIND WALKER.. HOUSE SPEAKER KURT DAUDT WAS ANNOUNCED LAST NIGHT AS CHAIRMAN OF WALKER’S MINNESOTA EFFORTS. NEW AT ELEVEN — STATE BUDGET CUTS ARE LEAVING MOST OF THE GUARD TOWERS AT COLUMBIA CORRECTIONAL INSTITUTION EMPTY AT NIGHT. THE WISCONSIN DEPARTMENT OF CORRECTIONS HAS BEGUN IMPLEMENTING SOME OF THE CHANGES INCLUDED IN THE RECENTLY-SIGNED BUDGET. IT MEANS THAT PRISON TOWERS ARE UNSTAFFED ON THIRD SHIFT. THE BUDGET ELIMINATED 60 TOWER GUARD POSITIONS AT 10 PRISONS TO SAVE NEARLY 6 MILLION DOLLARS. A CORRECTIONS SPOKESWOMAN SAYS THE TOWERS WILL BE STAFFED ON OTHER SHIFTS, EXCEPT AT NIGHT WHEN INMATES ARE SECURED IN THEIR CELLS. IN OUR CONTINUING COVERAGE — CHANGES ARE HAPPENING AT THE BELOIT POLICE DEPARTMENT. THE CHIEF AND DEPUTY CHIEF WERE PUT ON ADMINISTRATIVE LEAVE AFTER A REPORT QUESTIONING THE DEPARTMENT’S LEADERSHIP. SINCE THEN, THE INTERIM POLICE CHIEF DAVID ZIBOLSKI HAS MADE CHANGES. “WE’VE TACKLED A NUMBER OF ISSUES THAT PROVIDE OFFICERS WITH A BETTER ENVIRONMENT TO WORK. WE’RE PUTTING RIFLES IN THE FRONT OF THE SQUADS, ALLOWED THEM TO CARRY TOURNIQUETS ON THEIR BELTS, PROVIDED THEM SHIFT OVERLAP SO ALWAYS OFFICERS ON THE STREET.” IF THE POLICE CHIEF POSITION DOES OPEN UP ZIBOLSKI SAYS HE IS INTERESTED IN IT. A SPARTA MAN IS ACCUSED OF ATTACKING A LA CROSSE POLICE OFFICER. THE OFFICER REPORTEDLY RESPONDED TO A CALL OF A PERSON ASSAULTING PEOPLE EARLIER THIS WEEK. AND WHEN THE OFFICER ARRIVED, 22-YEAR-OLD JACOB OLSEN JUMPED ON THE HOOD OF HIS SQUAD CAR AND POUNDED HIS HEAD INTO THE WINDSHIELD. WHEN THE OFFICER GOT OUT, OLSEN ATTACKED HIM UNTIL HE WAS PEPPER SPRAYED. BOTH WERE TREATED AT THE HOSPITAL FOR INJURIES. THE OFFICER HAS SINCE RETURNED TO DUTY. ONLY ON NBC15 — MERITER HOSPITAL IS UPDATING THE WAY IT PERFORMS SURGICAL BIRTHS. THE TRADITIONAL C-SECTION IS TAKING ON A GENTLER APPROACH. LEIGH MILLS INTRODUCES US TO THE FIRST WOMAN TO EXPERIENCE THE CHANGE IN PRACTICE. “44:33 I’VE HAD SO MANY FRIENDS WHO’VE HAD C- SECTIONS WHO HAVE DESCRIBED THEIR EXPERIENCE AS TRAUMATIC OR SOMETHING THEY FEEL GUILTY ABOUT OR SOMETHING THAT WAS REALLY FAR FROM THE IDEAL FOR THEM.” “45:01 AND I THOUGHT, WELL THERE HAS TO BE A BETTER WAY.” CARRIE KILMAN IS EXPECTING HER FIRST CHILD… A LITTLE GIRL. WHEN SHE FOUND OUT SHE HAD TO HAVE A C-SECTION BECAUSE OF A MEDICAL CONDITION… SHE FOUND A LOCAL DOCTOR- MIDWIFE TEAM THAT WAS GETTING READY TO ROLL OUT A NEW, FAMILY-CENTERED APPROACH. “45:39 THE BEAUTIFUL THING ABOUT A GENTLE CESAREAN IS THAT THE FOCUS IS ON THE FACT THAT IT’S A BIRTH. IT’S NOT JUST A SURGERY, THIS IS A BIRTH AND EVEN IF IT’S A SURGICAL BIRTH, IT CAN STILL BE BEAUTIFUL.” “52:19 BEFORE I WORKED AS A MIDWIFE I WORKED AS A LABOR AND DELIVERY NURSE FOR A NUMBER OF YEARS . I SAW THE NEED FOR THIS FOR A COLLABORATION FOR PEOPLE TO KIND OF PUT FAMILIES AT THE CENTER.” “28:54 CARRIE’S REALLY GOING TO BE THE FIRST ONE WHERE WE DO THIS FULL FORCE.” “32:24 LET’S GO INTO THE OPERATING ROOM AND SEE HOW THINGS ARE GOING TO GO FOR YOU ON YOUR DAY.” WITH THE GENTLE C-SECTION… “DOOR TO OR SHUTTING” HOSPITAL STAFF MAKE SUBTLE CHANGES TO THE ENVIRONMENT IN THE O-R. “33:16 WE’RE GOING TO DIM THE LIGHTS SO WE CAN SET THE MOOD FOR THE BIRTH A LITTLE DIFFERENTLY (LIGHTS GO OFF) SO THE ROOM’S GOING TO LOOK A LITTLE MORE LIKE THIS.” THE I-V GOES IN THE MOM’S NON- DOMINANT ARM. “BEEPING” AND THE TOOL THAT MEASURES MOM’S OXYGENATION GOES ON HER TOE, INSTEAD OF HER FINGER… FREEING HER HANDS SO BABY CAN GO SKIN-TO-SKIN RIGHT AWAY. “35:32 WE DO HAVE A CAMERA BUILT RIGHT INTO ONE OF OUR SURGICAL LIGHTS.” “36:20 AS YOU CAN SEE YOU’RE SITTING AT THE HEAD OF THE BED, JOE’S THERE, YOU’LL BE ABLE TO SEE THE BIRTH OF YOUR BABY.” AND DR. FRED MELIUS SAYS IT’S BETTER FOR THE BABY TO DELIVER AT A SLOWER, GENTLER PACE. “17:42 THE UTERUS AND EVEN THE MOM’S MUSCULATURE OF THE STOMACH WALL WILL HELP PUSH THE BABY OUT SO, THE BABY GENTLY COMES OUT FIRST THE HEAD, THEN THEY SPIT OUT A LITTLE OF THE FLUID AND THEY WIMPER OR CRY A LITTLE BIT, THEN A SHOULDER WILL COME, THEN ANOTHER SHOULDER, THEN THE ARMS POP UP AND THAT EXPANDS THE LUNGS AND SAYS HI TO MOM AND DAD.” “1:00:08 I’M SO EXCITED. I THINK I’VE SEEN THIS NEED FOR A LONG TIME OF FOCUSING ON THE FAMILY RIGHT AFTER BIRTH, AND MAKING SURE THAT BONDING IS REALLY PROMOTED, AND SEEING THIS HAPPEN IS REALLY INCREDIBLE.” AND AS CARRIE COUNTS THE MINUTES, SHE COUNTS HER BLESSINGS. “49:32 IT’S BEEN VERY EMPOWERING TO WORK WITH MY CARE PROVIDERS TO FEEL LIKE I’M A PART OF THIS, THAT I’M AN ACTIVE PARTICIPANT AND THAT IT’S NOT JUST SOMETHING THAT IS HAPPENING TO ME, BUT IT’S SOMETHING THAT OUR FAMILY IS DOING TOGETHER.” ON DELIVERY DAY… “00:08 HELLO!
