Obstetrical nursing, also known as perinatal nursing, is a nursing speciality that helps women who are trying to conceive, are pregnant, or have recently given birth. Obstetrical nurses assist with prenatal care and testing, prenatal care and testing for patients with pregnancy difficulties, labour and delivery care, and postpartum care. Obstetrical nurses collaborate with obstetricians, midwives, and nurse practitioners to provide care to pregnant women. Patient care technicians and surgical technologists are also under their control. Postoperative treatment, stress test evaluations, cardiac monitoring, vascular monitoring, and health assessments are all performed by obstetrical nurses in a surgical unit. Obstetrical nurses must be skilled in areas such as electronic foetal monitoring, nonstress examinations, neonatal resuscitation, and medicine administration through a continuous intravenous drip. Because they frequently have more than one patient to deal with at a time, obstetrical nurses are also expected to be meticulous and organised. Nurses must be mentally and physically strong because they work long hours, often standing, and must be able to accomplish tasks effectively.
