Maternal and Neonatal Nursing
Maternal and neonatal nursing professionals provide care to expectant mothers in maternity wards and newborn infants. Neonatal and maternal nurses are registered nurses who have additional training. Maternal and neonatal nurses work with mothers and babies throughout labor and delivery. Maternal and neonatal nurses strive to make the delivery process easier and reduce the risk of death and other complications. You may also care for infants, particularly at-risk newborns, during the first few weeks of their lives. Other responsibilities include follow-up care, regular check-ups and newborn assessments.
