Job Description:

The RN Postpartum/Mother-Baby is responsible for newborns and moms who have just given birth. RN must be highly skilled and be able to handle emergencies that could arise for both patients. Nurses also teach new mothers how to properly care for both her newborn baby and herself.

Postpartum nurses perform a lot of assessments on new moms to make sure they are healing and recovering properly after giving birth. This may involve checking cesarean incisions or monitoring vital signs, remove catheters, which may have been placed during a C-section, or change dressings and give pain medication and antibiotics as needed.

In addition to caring for the mother, postpartum nurses also monitor babies to make sure they are healthy. Besides monitoring the recovery and health of mom and baby, postpartum nurses often provide education. Caring for a brand new little person can be a bit overwhelming, especially for new parents who do not have any experience with babies. Postpartum nurses may instruct new parents on all aspects of taking care of their babies. For example, nurses may teach new moms how to breastfeed, burp, or bathe their new baby.
