Pros: the ability to see life that will only happen once and give each family a great birth experience.
Cons: feast or famine. when it is busy there is barely time to eat and drink, but the outcome is so rewarding.
The was a six bed LDRP- with a level 3 NICU. The staffing culture was a awesome web of knowledge. There were nurses from other facilities in BR, NOLA -- various areas. The education I gained from this group was invaluable to which I will always be grateful.
After a few years, I could manage any patient from complicated antepartal patient - laboring patient-- postpartal/lactating patient and not to exclude high risk patients.
This staff strived for excellence and cared for the community.
