OB Rotation

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.
