When the baby was born I passed the all day in that house with the baby. I remember when I had to take care of a baby by myself. It was a girl and her mother lived next to my house.

Adequate sleep and rest promotes excellent physical, emotional, and spiritual health. Unfortunately, working on night shifts had a negative impact on my sleep and affected my personal and social life. My goal is to promote good quality of sleep and improve my sleep habits. My plan is to establish a regular bedtime; on my days off I will take a warm shower or hot bath and go to bed around midnight instead of resting on a coach and watching television until I fall asleep in the middle of the night. Before going to bed, I will limit caffeine intake, and decrease stimulation such as noise, light, and temperature. I am also willing to try melatonin supplements, which can promote better sleep.

I first found out I was pregnant two months after turning eighteen. Looking at that positive pregnancy test, I was terrified. I had countless emotions running through my head at the same time. The first question was, am I going to be able to do this? Of course, abortion was never an option. From that moment on, I decided I needed to find the courage inside me to step up and become a parent at such a young age.

Growing up I knew that I didn’t want kids because I didn’t want the responsibility. So I asked my mom did she ever want kids and at first it was no until she had me and then her mind had changed. After, that I asked her “what are abortions”(because I heard the term from school, but didn’t know what it meant) and she told me what they were and I didn’t like it. So, when I asked her has she ever had one, we got into sort of a debate. I didn’t understand why she would do something so cruel so many times. And ever since she told me that I have always been thankful for the siblings I have today.
A sweeping trend in rural areas has taken a toll on the health of the populations that live there; hospitals are closing or reducing their obstetric and maternity services. Reduced access to maternity services in rural areas affects the sustainability of communities as a whole (Miewald et al., 2011). Mary Breckinridge introduced midwives to rural Appalachia in the 1920s and brought about a significant decrease in maternal mortality. The broad return of modern midwifery could reduce economic burdens as well as decrease infant and maternal mortality in areas with limited access to care. The purpose of this paper paper is to discuss the life and legacy of Mary Breckinridge, examine the
When baby is born and a woman enters motherhood, her maternal instincts come naturally, either right away or over time. The one major problem with that is that becoming a mother comes with somestereotypes and misconseptions to be a perfect one. Stereotypes and misconceptions are both opinions about a group of individuals. Misconceptions, however, are lies made up about a group.

Family members and even community members put these mothers to shame by telling them how to do something the “correct”

Mothers should choose to breastfeed their children because of the benefits for the infant. Breastfeeding helps in the infant’s growth and development as well as boosting the immune system.

Breastfeeding has been around forever now, but it’s now not being accepted to be done in public. Women will hear comments like,” could you please cover up,” or ,“ do you really have to do that infront of me?” Women should not have to be judged for something that is natural and healthy.

Women should not have to suffer through the harassment of people saying how it’s inappropriate because it is healthy, natural, and legal.
