We have a Level II NICU, we do some high risk pregnancies. We have 2 hospitals. I work at both. One has a ten LDRP set up with mother baby and the other is a five LD set up with post partum/nsy care.

My name is Martha and I have been a OB RN (special interest delivery) for almost 13 years. I think it takes several years, at least in understaffed community hospitals with no residents, to feel reasonably cofident in delivery...As I have said before, though, anyone who ever truly feels at ease in delivery probably shouldn't be there...Prior to OB I was in cardiac step down, pediatrics, med surg and diabetes teaching....Would enjoy talking to others and hearing the similarities and differences around the country and around the world....Also thinking of writing a book some day that good naturedly pokes fun at patients instead of nurses....We would be the good guys instead of the other way around....I am at MoCrownRN@hotmail.com and would enjoy hearing from you. Krystal , I have one in college and 3 under 4! With the last one I was convinced I had an ulcer ( it was morning sickness!) So much for my alleged OB expertise!
Mar 4, '02Occupation: Full Time Nursing Student Joined: Nov '00; Posts: 54; Likes: 18Hi, my name is Teresa and I am not a nurse yet, but a nursing student VERY interested in Maternity. I just finished my maternity rotation in my ADN program and loved it! Right now I am trying to decided what area of OB to go into because I have an excellent opportunity to work as a student nurse at Yale New Haven Hospital in L&D, PP, or High Risk OB that will lead to a job after graduation. I was thinking that PP might be for me to start to get skills down before going to L&D which I know is very active. Feel free to email me at Teresab_2000@excite.com.

May 8, '02Occupation: RN med/surg/telemetry/ER Joined: Jul '01; Posts: 12Hi all,
Would love to email with other L&D, PP nurses. I worked med-surg and ER for nearly 6 yrs and got the opportunity to go into L&D in Sept. I really enjoy it most of the time, but sure don't feel real confident. Need a lot of one on one training and I feel like I could sure use more at times.
I work in a small hospital, with 3 LDR's and we could put 6 pts on our PP without using any of our LDR's for PP. There are about 10 of us staffing our unit and have 2 obstetricians.
Would love to hear from any of you. My email address: firstname.lastname@example.org
