When I grow up, I intend on being neonatal nurse practitioner. Neonatal nurses specialize in taking care newborn infants born with a variety of problems ranging from prematurely, birth defects, infection, cardiac malformations, and surgical problems. There are three levels of neonatal nursing. Level 1 is taking care of newborns in the nursery, Level 2 is Immediate care nurseries, and Level 3 is Neonatal Intensive Care Nurseries. Neonatal nurses typically deal with the babies for only their first month of life, though their problems may last much longer.
Introduction An Apgar score is a number that is based on an assessment of a newborn's condition right after birth. A baby's Apgar score helps the baby's health care provider: To decide whether the baby needs extra medical care. To determine the baby's response to care that is given. Babies are usually given two Apgar scores. The first scoring is calculated at 1 minute after birth, and the second scoring is calculated at 5 minutes after birth.
Neonatal nurses play an important role in health care providing devotion and love for newborns, whether infants are born with birth defects, premature, critically ill, or perfectly healthy. A few tasks neonatal nurses are required to do is to feed, change, watch the infants closely, and help provide support to the new families (Bureau of Labor Statistics). Many choices or experiences in life could lead someone to this career; such as, babysitting seeing a sick child who needs help, or even personal experiences. All types of nursing require some type of degree; the smallest would be a two year associate degree. Although people can stop there, some nursing careers prefer more education and experience.

Abortion is the medical termination of an unborn fetus. The termination is usually performed in the first 28 weeks.

The fetus and placenta are vacuumed out.
Standardized tests were intended to assess specific areas of development in young children such as gathering data by controls by a professional like testing conditions, initial screening, or full assessment process. For example, it is used by most hospital for infants with several observations shortly after birth. This common test goes on to be administered in one to five minutes after birth; however, if “a baby has serious health problems or the first two scores are low, the test may also be given 15 minutes after birth and additional times” (p. ). The APGAR Scores will examine for activity (muscle tone), pulse, grimace (reflex irritability), appearance (skin color), and respiration. Ultimately, this form of norm-referenced assessment does
Rooting should be done by stroking the newborns cheek. The newborn should react by turning towards the touch with an open mouth. The sucking reflex should be tested by sticking a gloved finger in the newborn 's mouth and the swallowing reflex is evaluated when the newborn eats. These tests evaluate the newborn 's nutritional intake. It is important to perform screening tests on newborns for metabolic and genetic disorders and hearing to identify conditions early and prevent serious problems.

The Millennium Cohort Study (MCS) is a longitudinal survey conducted by the Centre for Longitudinal Studies that tracks the lives of a sample of about 19,000 babies born in the UK in the year 2000/2001. The survey is conducted in several waves, with the first one concentrating on the circumstances of the pregnancy and birth as well as the first few months of life. This first part of the survey also contains important information about the socio-economic background of the family in which the child is born. The second wave took place when the children were about 3 years old, and the main focus was on continuity and change in the family as well as the parenting environment to extract information about the child 's development. In the third wave in 2006, the children were at the age to start primary school.
As a result of the elevated hCG levels Hyperemesis gravidarum may occur. Preeclampsia may be seen if the molar pregnancy continues into the second trimester. Davidson et al., explains that because of the fact that preeclampsia is a complication of late pregnancy, if symptoms are seen in the first half of the pregnancy, molar pregnancy must be considered as the first diagnosis.
