When a baby is born, nurses are among the child’s first caretakers. Nurses are there with expecting parents as they prepare for birth, and remain with the new family to establish and optimize everyday routines for both parents and baby. In order for nurses to prepare for this important role, organizations such as the Association of Women's Health, Obstetric and Neonatal Nurses (AWHONN) provide educational, professional, and clinical resources to help nurses working in women's health, obstetrics, and neonatal nursing continue their education and remain up-to-date on emerging best practices.
