How does neonatal nursing mentally effect you?
That's a great question. It depends on many factors such as mental health, past experiences, and just life perspective . Every case is different and one baby may trigger an emotional reaction from you.
We just never know when that may happen. The heartbreak makes us stronger and shows us that we too are human. I would suggest having a therapist or chaplain at work ( most hospitals provide that for us) to debrief with after difficult cases.
