I love babies and I love to see their parents all excited over them . I enjoy their happiness. However, I do NOT want to be a labor and delivery nurse. Most times its happy and babies are adorable, BUT the sad situations overshadow those happy moments.
I had to see a newborn baby go through opiod withdrawals. It’s pretty much the saddest thing I have ever seen. The baby couldn’t have been more than 12 hrs old and he doesn’t have a family to keep him safe. He was so small and so alone.
I was heartbroken.
