Well it did work in the sense that a baby was indeed pulled out of it, and it was indeed stapled shut, and then a week later it did, indeed, open.
This is rare, but does occasionally happen. I could apply that sentence to much of my babymaking experience.
My lovely wife had to stuff my 5-inch-wide, 1.5-inch-deep wound with gauze twice a day for 6 weeks, until it healed from the inside out. It hurt. She is very squeamish, and nearly passed out when the doctor said she had to do it. But she rose to the challenge and performed brilliantly.
