In attempts to encourage breastfeeding it was found that many women discontinued breastfeeding due to a lack of support during the early months of trying to breastfeed. (Grummer-Strawn p.107). This response from women is why it is vital that proper, supportive postpartum care is given to both mother and child. Successful breastfeeding mothers require “early breastfeeding initiation, no formula supplementation during the hospital stay, rooming-in, on-demand feedings, no pacifiers, and provision of information about breastfeeding upon discharge” (Grummer-Strawn p. 107). These six points are representative of everything it takes to initiate and stabilize breastfeeding.

She spends her days at the Roseridge Home for Extended Care until the end of her days. Meredith is responsible for anything that is in her mother’s name, and she does not inform anyone of her mother’s illness, until Ellis was hospitalized at Seattle Grace Mercy West Hospital (known now as Grey Sloan Memorial Hospital). The correlation between Meredith and I for being a caretaker of a loved one is surreal. My younger brother, the “baby” of the family, was recently diagnosed with paranoia schizophrenia. He too, like Ellis, was hospitalized; however, his stay as much longer than Ellis.

The Cassandra C vs. Connecticut case involved 17 year old Cassandra C who refused to receive cancer treatment. Her parent also agreed with her decision.

Your elderly parents and grandparents, newborn babies, your loved ones and others who may have weak immune systems, all rely upon you and everyone else the community to make the choice for vaccination. Samantha Reade was a 19-old-mum who lost her first child, Kristian to pertussis (whooping cough). At just 14 days of age, the deadly whooping cough took his life, Samantha could not do anything to save her child, he was too little to be immunised against the illness. She didn 't know where he got the disease, maybe in the hospital, maybe it was when she was pregnant. This wouldn 't have happened if people were vaccinated, families shouldn 't have to go through the fear of when they discover a disease that may kill their child, they shouldn 't have to go through the pain, grief and loss.

I then asked her why she didn 't get her screening earlier when she first notices difference in her breast, and why didn 't she take her partner 's advice when it was he asked her? She replied, Because i didn 't think it was as serious as it ended up to be, I 'm old i get different kinds of pain throughout my whole body and unfortunately i class the pain in my breast as a passing pain where i thought i would never get it
Surprising, the messages I got out of the experience are relevant to this topic. The mothers in particular had chosen to birth their baby outside of the hospital and without any trained physicians nearby. They all chose to have their babies at home. I found each of the mothers repeating a similar line to the camera crew about the reason behind the decision to have a child in such an unorthodox and non mainstream manner. Each stated that at the hospital with the births of previous children, they had lost control.
Mary reported she fell at home on Saturday but did not tell anyone until her son David came to the home later that day. Mary reported "I am just getting old and having lots of problems". Mary explained to her son she could not walk and he called an ambulance. Mary stated she does not like to bother her children with her problems because they are all very busy people. Mary was wearing the same night gown and bathrobe she was transported to the hospital in.
