Should one begin to define it from pregnancy or does one begin to define it from the early childhood or adolescence – a stage which prepares the female body for motherhood? If one has to make a thorough study of the subject then perhaps it would be appropriate to define it from early childhood, adolescence, followed by late adolescence, conception and pregnancy, child- bearing and child-rearing. All the stages of motherhood have an impact on the life of a woman, but the last, which is child-rearing, saddles her with great responsibility.

By establishing a worker/client relationship, this will provide Laura with a secure base to operate from in the future. She will be able to confidently explore her historical, current, and future relationship with her mother knowing that she can receive comfort and reassurance from me, her social worker. Once she recognizes this secure base, I will assist her in discovering how she currently handles her relationship with her mother. During this relational discovery process with her mother, I will also allow her to explore her relationship with me, showing Laura how her previous ways of dealing with others could be positively changed through the change of her various internal behavioral models. Through this social worker and client relationship exploration, Laura will discover how her current perceptions of her mother are connected to expectations from their relationship when she was a child, providing her the opportunity to view the current relationship differently.
Motherhood gifts to women the responsibility of bringing up a child and via this process, she can also be judged by people at her workplace and also the in society. Due to care of the child, the woman might exhaust more leave options, therefore risking the job security.

Introduction The birth of a new baby in the family and diagnosis as a child with special needs, sensory or mental disorders, begins to change the perceptions and understanding for the family members especially the parents. Responsible parents try to explore appropriate solutions for helping their children at an early age because the biggest concern for these parents is what will happen to their children in the future. For instance, parents are always wondering about the social and professional life of their children. Fortunately, the education policy in the United States of America provides equal educational opportunities regardless of race, color, age, sex, disability, doctrine, ethnic background, national origin, and citizenship status. For
Simkin P (1992)2 stated that although childbirth typically concludes within a single day, women often remember their experiences vividly, even decades later. Health professionals have long understood that the childbirth process can be unpredictable. However, given a healthy outcome, the extent to which the birth environment supports a woman’s medical and psychological needs may have a major role in determining whether she is satisfied with the experience Beck CT (2011)3 stated that childbirth is a significant life event. Although most birth experiences are positive, some women perceive giving birth as a traumatic event and may even experience post-traumatic stress disorder. It is essential that nurses and childbirth educators understand how women experience birth and what factors influence their perceptions of giving birth.
THE USE OF INTUITION: AN ELEMENT OF DECISION-MAKING IN MIDWIFERY Chapter 1 THE PROBLEM AND ITS BACKGROUND CHAPTER I THE PROBLEM AND ITS BACKGROUND Decision making in midwifery is a complex process that shapes and underpins clinical practice and determines, to a large extent, the quality of care. Steinhauer (2015) relevantly emphasized that effective decision making and professional accountability are central to clinical governance, and being able to justify all decisions is a professional and legal requirement. A midwife therefore plays a very important role in the care of pregnant mothers from the time they go to her clinic for antenatal care and labor up to childbirth, postpartum and newborn care provision as well. This role is highlighted in one of the Filipino beliefs which states, “when a pregnant woman delivers her newborn, one of her legs is already lodged in the burial pit”, as no one would know what to expect during the process of childbirth and post childbirth, if the delivery procedure becomes successful or not. Statement of the Problem The research study aims to explore the use of intuition as an element in decision-making particularly relating to the delivery of maternal health care services in the midwifery practice.
They tend to be less paid than men. They are more likely to have part time jobs or occupy the jobs with low status. These inequities are explained in the labor market as stemming from the woman’s role in the family. Sociologist Talcott Parson argued that women are naturally suited to the expressive role of children, whereas men are suited for the instrumental role of competing in the labor market. This implied that women will give up or interrupt their careers in order to care for their children.
By establishing relationships with actors that are associated to your business you gain an advantage on building your position (Elg et al, 2008). Therefore, our aim is to establish relations with local contacts and communities. The position of a company entering a new market depends on the “matching activities” it develops. This means that it is really important to create relationships with local social actors in order to gain their support (Elg et al, 2008) since they are the ones who can influence consumer’s support as well. To begin with, since our target is women aged 18-25 who do not necessarily have their own source of income but must ask their parents to provide them with money, we also have to build trust to parents.
Becoming a mother is one of the most important life changing events that a woman will experience in the course of her life (Wilsson, M., & Adolfsson, A.,2011). Mothers may feel a very demanding and overwhelming experience as they handle new and sudden responsibility in caring for their newborn infants (Wilsson, M., & Adolfsson, A.,2011). Mothers are also expected to be handling different responsibilities that are significant for the growth of their child and this may entail that something may be given up along the way and certain changes in their lives may happen. In terms of being a parent of a child with special needs, caregiving is still seen as something that is the primary role of women. In family research, one of the most consistent empirical
