Hi I'm going to start nursing school
and want to go into the l/d and maternal/child care area. I really have no interest in any other areas of nursing, but have dreamed about l/d and m/c care for sometime. I am 27 years old, married and have two young children. I have a BS in chemistry and am certified to teach high school - but its not really what I want to do. I am now a mostly stay at home mom (work 10-12hrs/week), which I love, but am looking for something that allows me flexability to be with my children and do something I truly enjoy. I have been reading many posts on choosing nursing as a career and am starting to wonder - but I would like to hear from some l/d and maternal/child care nurses to see what your opinions are on this subject. I am fascinated by pregnancy, birth, newborns and everything these involve and would love to work in this field (somehow/someway). I would really appreciate any input. Thanks!
