ALBANY, GA (WALB) – A new 15 week nurse fellowship at Phoebe Hospital will help nurses in surrounding cities take better care of high risk mothers and their babies.

Four nurses from Adel were the first to participate in the Prenatal Fellowship Pilot Program at Phoebe.

They got hands-on training and education on handling high-risk pregnancies so they can take care of expectant mothers before they're transferred to Phoebe.

"The time it takes from the time they call us and say we need you guys, we have to mobilize our team. During that time the job they do is very important in stabilizing those patients," said Jennifer Bradley, Educator Prenatal Grant.

Thursday the nurses used a simulated baby who cries and moves to familiarize themselves with a broader range of situations which could go wrong in high-risk pregnancy.
