Baby's Are The Best !
A Neonatologist is trained specifically to handle the most complex and high-risk situations. These type of nurses may assist at the time of delivery. If a problem is identified before your baby is born, a neonatologist may become involved to consult with your obstetrician in your baby's care during your pregnancy. For example if your newborn is born premature, has a serious illness , injury or birth defect. Neonatologist are pediatricians who have completed specialized training to treat newborns and infants with critical conditions.
I'm interested in becoming a Neonatologist Nurse because it's a "hands-on" type of job. It's one of the few remaining medical specialities where you get to know patients and their families on a day-to-day basis. I think it's a great career for people who are interested in getting involved with babies.
