    Another nurse/midwife here. I work nights and often they're not too bad. If I'm doing a few in a row I hate my first one because I'm so tired, but then the rest are pretty good. The thing I hate most about nights is waking people up, either intentionally or unintentionally. We are expected to look in on our mums and bubs every hour or 2 to make sure they're ok. I know myself I would wake up everytime someone came in as I don't sleep well in hospital. I just feel mean doing it because new parents are already tired enough without me waking them up with the creaky door every hour.

    And the phones don't ring as much, you don't have to contend with lots of visitors or people in general haha (apart from colleagues and patients of course).

    What's a "normal birth"?

    Hospitality worker here, although on mat leave. The nights are not too bad but can be incredibly boring if it's early in the week or ridiculously busy on the weekend. Public holidays are just murder and no amount of penalty rates can compensate. Lol.
