Delivery Room – The Heart of Nurses and Midwives

It is so amazing where another phase of life begin to breathe, the moment we see another life on earth, the place where a new child is born: the delivery room.

Once said, hospital is a place where financial issue remains to be debated and unresolved due to high hospital bills. Perhaps, to some or mostly indeed, but for what nurses and midwives do believe in every bad thought there is always a place where ideal care promises great competency. Delivery room an area where nurses and midwives always perceive and integrate proper assessment, heartily diagnosis, good planning, right implementation and steadfast evaluation. I do believe delivery room nurses and midwives are incredible in mounting the finest quality of care to patients. Because learning is such a virtue, we, delivery room nurses and midwives must develop and enhance during our practice.

By hospital policy and compassionate rationalization nurses and midwives aim to deliver the paramount understanding about rules and regulation in the delivery room on what every patient should know as well as with their significant others. We can update the patient and their significant others the situation the patient is undergoing, the needs they can give, the emotional and spiritual support and other necessary information that are essential and desirable. As nurses and midwives we are still liable to practice with good ethics. Furthermore, it’s a huge impact to the society on what we do, how much we know and why is our profession important.

Unlike other area or department in the hospital, the delivery room nurses and midwives gives humane and excellent patient care that is entirely different. From welcoming the expecting mothers, establishing rapport, comforting them during labor, explaining to them the proper breathing, positioning and so on and so forth until delivery progresses and when the baby is out. Convenience and respect as an individual manages the bonding between the nurses, midwives and their patients. Through laughter’s and tears the healthcare team and patients undertake. It is a one of a lifetime event that stresses out how humanity witnesses their weakness and strength during labor and delivery. Not even science can stop the process because it is a natural occurrence of life.

The delivery room is the heart of every hospital and to simplify the heart of nurses and midwives. Both providing and promoting the best tender love and care ever during the mother’s labor and delivery as well as during bathing and feeding of babies. It is a whole new world in the delivery room each nurse and midwife learns how to work independently, boosting their knowledge, skills and attitude. It is a touch of heart to be honest we cannot deny how emotional we can be when we see the baby comes out during delivery. We see life at its best, the package we always remember how we as human was brought to earth and cried out loud at the delivery room. Its life and we should value it. We should all be grateful to the nurses and midwives who cared and assisted us during our momentous birth.

“A hospital without a delivery room cannot relate the beauty of birth in humanity simply because it is the area where life begins to breathe and live. During delivery the milieu is superbly inspiring to be alive and to be thankful about life and to the Almighty Lord.”
