The Real Heroes of the Maternity Wards Aren’t the Doctors, It’s the Nurses
The immediate consequences can make us weak and physically vulnerable.
The true heroes of the maternities are not the doctors. They are the nurses.
Childbirth is one of the most important events in a woman’s life. However, the consequences are that young mothers are generally weak and physically exhausted. The baby is out, the cord is cut off and family and friends celebrate the new birth.
Once the excitement is over and the doctor is away, the nurses stay. They are the ones who are there for the new mothers, every turn.
The owner of the Baby Rabies blog, Jill Krause, recently posted on Facebook a thank you to the nurses who take care of the birth of their baby for the new mother.
She remembered the post-delivery reshuffle in the bathroom, where you are so tired and so sore after giving birth that you almost do not know what to do. Relying on your nurse is crucial when you go to the bathroom and you realize at that time that your nurse is really an angel.
She tells how she will never forget the nurses who helped her go to the bathroom after giving birth. How they treated her so kindly when she was tired and anxious. She praises the way she treated him with respect and dignity.
With the post office, there was a beautiful picture of a nurse helping a new mother in the bathroom. The post has evoked thousands of memories of mothers around the world. After being shared more than 40,000 times, the Post sent more than 4,000 comments from mothers wishing to share their own experiences in the delivery room and after the baby was born.
Comment after comment, nurses were wonderful when they needed it the most. The first few hours after your delivery are full of fatigue, pain and confusion. That’s why you need a nurse more than any other time.
A commentator told the story of a nurse grabbing her mobile phone after her baby was placed on her chest. She took pictures without the new mother and her boyfriend asking her to hold their new baby.
Another commentator told how her nurse had helped her after a long job and cleaning a caesarean section in the shower. She said that when she was so deaf and so unwell that the nurse took on this task for her, a memory she will always cherish.
Krause mentions that, even though we do not know our nurses personally, they spend a lot of time in the hospital and earn a lot of credit. We also appreciate our doctors, but it’s the nurses who help us with all the little things we need to do when the baby is gone.
We love our nurses and hope you too! Did you like this post and feel the same? Please do not hesitate to spread this message to wonderful nurses!
