l&D nursing and CNA on a L&D floor

  1. I'm think about being a L&D nurse if I truley decide to finish my clinicals. I was wondering if any L&D nurses could share what they all do on their floor. What are some of the bad things I could see on that floor? How is it staffed, meaning are you cross trained in all areas, pp,l&D and mom/baby care or do you do one specific thing. Also, so you experience severe staffing problems such as they do on floors such as ICU or MedSurg. Is is emmotionally and physically draining,what is the stess level like?? I'm going to be a CNA on a Birthing floor as soon as I finish my CNA classes. What do the CNA's do on a birthing floor. Thanks
