Smoking the Weed in Pregnancy =/
Ok I annoyed. Really annoyed. I circulated for a moms Csection early this am. Nurse gave me report and noted mom admitted to Pot smoking as recent as one week ago. One Week Ago!!!! She willingly and knowinly subjected Her baby to pot. I don't get it!!! How Stupid can you be? Gosh! As a L&D nurse I can tell you I bond with my moms during labor. I feel close to them and encourage and support them in their labor plans.
But moms like this get a diffeant approach from me. Oh I do my job...and do it well. But I have no emotional tie to the mom. I just do the job. I lavish joy on that sweet baby when its born, but I feel contempt for the mother deep in my heart. They don't know. I don't show it. But I just can't get all warm feeling about mothers who abuse their children like that. Anyone else feel like me? It makes me sick to my stomach....
RN working nights L&D in a large teaching hospital learning how to help newborns join the human race. My job is a blessing and I want to be really good at it.
