I had the chance to go to Maternity Unit for one of my clinical rotations and I love being in the nursery. I love holding the teeny tiny humans. They are all so freaking cute. I had the chance to see many babies that went home to a loving family and ones that are also abandoned right after birth as well. It was heart breaking to see the precious babies suffer because of the moms/parents bad decisions.
I also had the chance to see a circumcision and boy, I am traumatized! There was this particular baby that I was so worried about because he had the procedures done. I literally had tears in my eyes seeing him scream his lungs out. He was a border baby, meaning, his mom did illicit drugs while she was pregnant. I literally dreamt about him for a whole week. Found out, he went to foster care. Was never seen by his mom. I swear, if I have the power, I would become a heroine for these precious babies.
Maternity clinical rotations is coming to an end (only two more weeks). Our clinical instructor is a fountain of knowledge and this is by far my favorite out of all the clinical I’ve been (throughout my nursing careers). I feel bittersweeet about this. I definitely want to work in nursery or NICU upon graduations. Credit: Katie Van Zi
