I am a new grad looking, ideally, for an L&D position. However, it looks like I am about to be offered a postpartum job with the promise to be moved to L&D once I have some experience. I'm totally up for it, but don't know a lot about what a postpartum job entails.
I would love to hear from a postpartum nurse about what their job duties are, what shifts are like, etc, especially on the night shift. I know that hospitals differ, but do the postpartum nurses usually staff the well baby nursery? If there are lactation consultants on staff, do the nurses still help out with breastfeeding?
Any info would be so appreciated!
