We are all human, charting on the wrong chart got you fired?! I cannot believe that! I've done that, everyone probably has. if you love L&D go for it, you only live once.. and you've waiting a long time go for it!:heartbeat

Instruct patient put chin to her chest, take a deep breath and hold while pushing, to grab under thighs and pull legs toward abdomen curling around her belly, to RELAX LEGS and push. I tend to give a lot of supports/cheer patients on!!:typing
Anyone have advice/techniques:typing to find and KEEP a HR on EFM? Sometimes I will find baby and take a step away and the HR will be lost! I have tried a washcloth to hold a HR, but that's the only trick I know!
We have labor and delivery nurses that also help catch other labor and delivery nurse's babies (unless we expect complications then nursery is involved). Once the babe is assessed and stable then back to your own patients it is! Once mom is recovered they are moved to post partum/gyn. L&D nurses give report to nursery nurses once babe goes to nursery!
