A lot of OB nursing is social and educational. Do you like teaching people? Do feel passionate about breastfeeding? Are you willing to not be practicing med/surg skills? How do you feel about dealing with parents who clearly should not be parents, or families that show little interest in learning? All of these issues come up in OB nursing. It is a great field, full of wonderful experiences, but it is psychologically and emotionally intensive. And when it goes bad, it tends to go in a in a big bad way...You are dealing with a basically healthy population, but now there are increasing numbers of comorbidities interplaying with the complications of birth and recovery. Make sure you want this type of job description. Good luck!
