Baby nurse should be especially attentive and scrupulous.

Text:
I can confess that the nurse’s work seemed attractive to me from my childhood that is why I had no doubts about choosing my profession. I have 23 years of experience behind me. 21 of them have been spent at Kretinga Hospital. I am a children’s nurse of Obstetrics and Gynaecology Unit of this hospital. I work with newborn babies. The baby nurses have special responsibility, as the newborns are special patients. I take part in the delivery and nurse the babies from the first days of their lives; I also teach the mothers what to do and how to do it. Apart from all the necessary professional qualities, it is so important for the nurses to be able to communicate, as the young mothers of the newborns want to know how to take care of their babies. We have to explain everything to them, teach them and, when necessary, console them with a kind word. Besides, a baby nurse should be especially attentive and scrupulous, and she has to foresee many things because a baby cannot tell you what’s wrong and what he/she wants. I am not even trying to count how many babies I have nursed and taken care of during my working years. The happiest moments have always been those when the baby comes to this world. The heart rejoices also when mothers say words of gratitude for love and care for their babies. I am mother myself raising my 9-year-old son, Domantas, and 7-year-old daughter, Agneta. They know about my work not only from words; they have visited me in the hospital. Agneta sometimes is playing hospital: she is a nurse and her dolls are patients.
