You can tell they really love their job and the women they serve.
It makes me feel like a part of an amazing team that comes together to help each mom have a wonderful birth experience.
I especially love the ones who do extra little things to help my clients have the support they need.
I love it when they are willing to run interference with the OB’s –
- buying more time before exams
- getting “permission” to get in the shower
- protecting moms space
- encouraging mom to get off the monitor and walk the halls
- waiting to call the OB in until mom is REALLY pushing – letting mom find a good position and rhythm on her own
Thank you L&D Nurses, you are the best!
Moms, when you go to the hospital, ask to be assigned a nurse that LOVE natural childbirth and you will get a wonderful advocate to help you have the best birth possible!
