A Registered Nurse will monitor Mother and baby by checking vital signs, fetal heart rate using a Doppler and uterine activity using a Toco monitor if requested by her physician. The RN will also assist the physician to administer medications that control uterine contractions by giving injections or placing the mother on a continuous ambulatory pump. Following delivery of the baby an RN will provide newborn assessments as well as any after delivery care the mother may need. By coordinating care with the physician it is our goal to make the antepartum and postpartum experience as free from complications as possible while allowing mother to remain at home in lieu of a lengthy hospitalization.
