This review was made possible by iConnect and Pampers. I was provided compensation to facilitate this post, but all opinions are 100% mine.
As moms, when we prepare for a new baby, we tend to have a long list of things to have in place. We go over those lists, wash and rewash the new babies clothes, go through their stuff one thousand times, to help ensure we are ready for their arrival. We also find ourselves imagining the big day, planning how things will be done, hoping that when the day comes to deliver baby, things will go as smoothly as possible.
For myself, I learned that even with all of the planning that can be done, we can not truly plan out how a birth will go, and when the time comes, having the support around can help to make the birthing process a less scary one for new moms. I found that the nursing staff which was present for each of my babies births, were very supportive. They helped to make the process for myself and even my husband a less intimidating and scary process by giving us words of encouragement and helping to keep me as comfortable as possible during labor and delivery.
I found that with the nurses that were there during the birthing process of each of my babies, that they had hearts like none other. I mean, throughout the process of labor, even when they had a floor filled with laboring mothers, they gave me the care and attention I needed at the time. Then once I delivered, the nurses both in the delivery room and the nursery, treated and cared for my babies as if they were their own babies. Ensuring both myself and my babies were healthy and well cared for while we were in their care.
For this, I found that before leaving the hospital with our new baby, I wanted to thank the nursing staff, by not only telling them thank you but by also creating gift baskets for them to enjoy at the nurses stations. Because I know that aside from myself and my own baby, the nursing staff took care of a number of other new mothers and their babies, and making each of us feel cared for and special.
Recently I was introduced to an amazing incentive, one where Pampers Swaddlers and the Association of Women’s Health, Obstetric and Neonatal Nurses (AWHONN) have teamed together to allow parents to nominate their favorite nurses! With this amazing initiative, parents, friends, family and even co-workers can share their stories of the nurses who helped them when it comes to making life better for baby!
You can nominate your favorite nurse or even coworker if you are a nurse, between now and December 14th. The nominations will be made for the following which include Labor & Delivery, Neonatal Intensive Care Unit and Postpartum. Once all of the nominations are in, there will be 3 finalists chosen, one from each category, and announced in March, then a grand prize winner in May. From there, the 3 finalists from each category will be honored with short films that document their unique and inspirational stories as nurses, and given a one year membership to the AWHONN and attend the 2016 convention along with other great prizes!
