Modern Family Does Labor and Delivery
This is how I feel my first of five days in a row.
This is how I feel when I go to work, and my favorite charge nurse is working… (you know who you are!)
This is how I feel when I find out I’m working mother-baby.
This is how I feel when someone comes in complete, and I get switched to be a labor nurse.
This is how I feel when my heart tones are down.
This is how I feel when a little O2 and a position change fixes everything.
This is how I feel when I get a second labor patient, and end up Piting two active labor patients.
This is how I feel when I tell a mom to hold her baby skin-to-skin after delivery.
This is how I feel when the grandmother says she’s going to hold the baby first.
This is how I feel when my patient delivers.
This is how I feel when the patient holds her baby skin-to-skin immediately after delivery and the baby self latches and breastfeeds within the first hour.
This is how I feel looking for a nurse to give report to so I can deliver my other patient.
This is how I feel when my patient is contracting every two minutes, and I’m asked to increase the Pitocin.
This is how my husband feels every time he comes to the unit and every nurse tries to talk to him.
This is what happens when I try to tell my husband every cool/gross thing that happened to me at work that day.
And this is how I feel when I wake up on my first day off.
Until my next delivery ❤
Shout out to all my labor patients! ❤ And I really looove working mother-baby 😉
