In the last 5 years I have had 3 kids, yes 3, sometimes I can’t believe it, life has gotten a bit crazy as of late!  My first was born when my husband was in the military, he was deployed to Afghanistan pretty much through my whole pregnancy. The nurses on post were lovely, especially my midwife, she always encouraged me to stay strong even though my husband wasn’t there, she helped out with any health scares or concerns I had at the time and without a good nurse, pregnancy would have been a much different experience, luckily my husband was home for the birth for around 30 days!

When my second and third were born, I had a  C Section, not because of health reasons, just because I decided on it and it worked out great.  The nurses at the hospital were so helpful they came in, fluffed my pillows, gave me pain meds every few hours and helped me get out of bed and walk around just a few hours after surgery.

They also took care of my babies at night time so I could sleep and recover, which was needed badly!  After a couple of days I was healthy enough to go home and as weird a this sounds, I felt bad leaving the hospital, the nurses took care of us so good I could have stayed another few days!

I am super thankful for the work that nurses do, the way they treat patients and the long hours they work!
