Nursing Care After Delivery Stacy Mauch How do nurses care for babies right after
delivery? So right after delivery we encourage skin-to-skin
with mom. So as long as baby is crying when we come out, we put baby immediately skin
to skin and leave baby there for the immediate hour or first two hours after delivery. We
do that to promote bonding with mom and makes breastfeeding a lot easier. It also cut provides
comfort for when we do baby shots and things like that. After the first two hours, your
nurses will help teach you everything that you needed known to be a mom. Diaper changes
and feeding, so whether you’re bottle feeding or breast feeding, we help moms learn how
to do that. We have lactation consultants that come in and help with breastfeeding,
if that’s what you choose to do, and then they’ll continue through your entire stay.
We also offer videos in the room for moms to watch, and we give a book at discharge
that answers a lot of your questions. Talk about the nursing care moms receive after
delivery. Courtney Beebe So immediately after delivery the mom is in
a two hour recovery, whether it be a vaginal delivery or a c-section. So they get very
close monitoring for the first two hours, every 15 minutes vitals and fundal rubs. So
once the recovery phase is done, the patient and the baby at Belleville will transfer out
to postpartum as a couplet and be assigned to one nurse. And then the assessment phase
kind of slows down a little bit, still frequent for the first 12 hours or 24 hours depending
on the type of birth that you had, but still stays frequent.
