Postpartum nurse jobs are multi-faceted positions that provide direct care to new mothers. Most postpartum nurses spend 2-4 days with their patients immediately following the birth of a child. During this time, they will ensure everything is healing properly and teach new mothers how to care for their baby.
Daily tasks vary depending on patients. Postpartum nurses ensure the healing process goes smoothly after birth. This may include assessments on new mothers’ breasts, bladders, incisions, hemorrhoids and more.
Like other nursing fields, postpartum nurse jobs involve educating patients. In a postpartum setting, this is extremely important, particularly for new mothers. Duties may include teaching the mother to breastfeed, burp, bathe and change the baby’s diaper. They also provide instructions on car seat safety, proper nutrition, when to schedule appointments and common medical issues. Postpartum nurses are also trained to spot signs of postpartum depression and help new mothers cope emotionally.
To qualify for postpartum nurse jobs, candidates need to be an RN. Postpartum RN jobs also require training in neonatal resuscitation and fetal monitoring. After 2 years of experience, postpartum nurses can qualify for additional certification in the field.
