Norton Healthcare’s labor and delivery nurses are highly trained and committed to providing the best care, as well as comfort and encouragement along the way.

- Monitor mom’s and baby’s vital signs
- Time contractions
- Coach moms throughout labor and delivery
- Identify and assist with handling any complications
- Help administer medications and epidurals
- Assist doctor or midwife as needed
