Additionally, L&D nurses coach mothers through the many stages of labor, for instance, offering pain management advice during difficult contractions. Most noteworthy, in recent times we have experienced a revolution regarding medical care management of pregnant women and their infants. Hence, L&D nurses are required to be adept in promoting holistic approaches to pain. Also, they need to understand the importance of skin-to-skin practices. In addition, L&D nurses need to be skilled in techniques and issues associated with new mothers as they begin breastfeeding. Hospitals are always seeking nurses who are educated and/or experienced in the most up-to-date L&D practices, including lactation training.
