I have the same question, is it L&D, or postpartum Mother/baby?
When I was a med-surg float, it was my favorite assignment! When taking care of the post partum mothers I was always given stable patients and always had the resources of the other nurses. I sometimes got an antepartum patient who was being treated for something medical, and if fetal montioring was needed, the mother/baby nurse did it.
When taking care of babies, I just helped feed them and change their diapers. No blood draws and another mother/baby nurse needed to be there.
It was great. I loved it and even picked up OT there when they were short.
