Following the completion of the Higher Diploma in Midwifery I worked in the labour ward of the National Maternity Hospital. I thoroughly enjoyed this experience and spent over three years working very happily in the labour ward. Towards the end of my third year in the labour ward I successfully applied for the position of research assistant and worked with the bereavement team to complete the research project ‘An exploration of the prevalence and patterns of care for women presenting with Mid-trimester Loss at the National Maternity Hospital’ (Cullen et al., 2016). The current study is a follow on study. Throughout the process of completing this project I worked closely with the bereavement team and this further developed my interest in this area.

When it comes to post-partum care, there are a lot of teachings, skills and monitoring to accomplish which is sometimes hard to fit into one shift and patients only stay in the hospital for about two to three days depending on their labour experience and well-being. Patients agreeing with breastfeed helps prevent diseases and illnesses in the future for both mom and infant. Therefore, Ross-Cowdery et al. (2016) realized that "Although many women know that breastfeeding improves infant health outcomes… we hypothesized that informing pregnant women of the maternal health effects of lactation would strengthen their intentions to breastfeed" (p. 235).

In the first year of my nursing career, I plan to gain as much experience as a pediatric nurse while starting to look at different program options for becoming a PNP. In looking at different program options I would ideally get applications in for at least three to four programs to keep all options open.

What should I talk about? These questions overwhelmed me until I remembered why I was doing this – to make a positive difference in patients’ lives. Over the next three weeks, I learned to interact with Robert on a personal level. Following my first visit with Robert, he asked me if I will see him next time I am at the hospital, and I promised I would. We learned about each other’s lives, and I was now more confident and better able to communicate with him.
