My perspective on holistic nursing and self-care Introduction In context of World Health Organization, self-care is often defined as activities individuals, families and communities undergoes with the motive of increasing health, overcoming disease, limiting illness and restoring health ("What is", n.d.). The knowledge and skills are gained from both professional and lay experiences for such activities. According to Klebanoff & Hess (2013), holistic nursing is defined as all nursing practice that has only motive of healing the whole person as its prime goal. A holistic nurse is like a licensed nurse who often incorporates a “mind-body-spirit-emotion-environment” approach to the practice of traditional nursing. Holistic nursing practices often require the combination of self-care and personal development activities into one 's life.
Caring helps influence the ways in which people think, feel, and behave in relation to one another (Ozan, Okumus, & Lash, 2015). Caring in the nursing practice provides the presence of a touch, listening, spiritual caring, relieving pain, and a support system. Jean Watson 's Human Science and Human Care Theory includes transpersonal caring and relationships (a moral idea), carative factors (what to do), carative process (how to do), and the human care paradigm (Hood, 2018). These tools are necessary to use in a nurse’s daily life. Watson’s theory focuses on caring as the moral ideal of nursing and helping a person understand meaning in sickness, pain, and existence.

Nursing Science Quarterly, 23(2), 99-104. doi:10.1177/0894318410362553 Martha Alligood provides an in-depth analysis of King’s theory that was chosen as the topic for this paper. The academic journal written by Martha Alligood, RN, PhD, affiliated with East Carolina University, explains how beneficial Imogene King’s Theory of Goal Attainment is used in nursing practice. This theory helps nurses create a plan of care for patients with family inclusion.

SAFE DELIVERY- According to WHO report, the delivery should be conducted by skilled doctors/ nurse/ auxiliary nurse midwife (ANM) birth attendance who have the skills to manage normal deliveries and recognize the onset of complications in hygienic conditions. POSTNATAL CARE- The postpartum period lasts to about 42 days beginning right after the baby is born. Women who received check-up during postpartum period is considered to have received postnatal care. All the three dependent variables are dummy variables (that is 1 = service is received, 0 = otherwise). Therefore, binary logistic regression is used to understand the determinants of maternal health care.
