When a woman gives birth to a child, it can be one of the most joyous and exciting moments in her life, yet it can also be difficult and stressful. There are a range of emotional, behavioral, and physical changes that occur shortly after a woman gives birth. These changes are common; however, many women who experience these emotions may have postpartum depression, with symptoms ranging from mild to severe. Many women require medical treatment. Although all causes of postpartum depression are unknown, there are many factors that can put a woman at risk. This essay provides an overview of postpartum depression, the impact it has on the individual client, the newborn, and the family, the physical and mental assessment
Having kids is a wonderful experience for parents from all around the world, which can leave some pleasant memories, but perhaps, one of the most unpleasant is changing dirty diapers.

Less than 30 years ago the survival rate of premature babies was 25%, now that number has risen to a survival rate of 90%(Dutton, Judy). The increase in this number is most likely due to the advanced medicine and technology and the help of neonatal nurses.

Neonatal nurses are there to help contribute to the health of these babies so they can grow strong and healthy. Within nursing, especially neonatal nursing, that has been around since early 1900s have helped save and nurture our babies of the future.

As an evidenced-based practice driven, level three newborn intensive care staff nurse, I found interest in your university as your goals in education align with my current and future aspirations. My goal as a pediatric nurse practitioner is to provide a higher level of care by promoting wellness and disease prevention through patient education. I want to equip future generations with the skills they need to promote lifelong health and wellness. By providing evidenced-based practice in a pediatric outpatient setting, not only will I be able to improve individual patient health outcomes, but sequentially will also improve the communities outcomes.
First, you will need to gather a few items before you are able to change the baby’s diaper. First, you will need a diaper, baby powder or diaper rash cream, unscented baby wipes, a change of clothes in case the child has leaked through his/her clothes, and of course you’re going to need the baby.

The Bridge's model of transition is made up of three stages known as the ending phase, the neutral phase and the new beginnings phase. The ending phase is characterized by the ability of an individual to let go of the old responsibilities. It consists of components such as disengagement, misidentification, disenchantment, and disorientation. In the second phase, the nurse begins to accept the new position and its responsibilities, accepting that most probably their relationships with former peers will change. The nurse works to proceed in the new job while at the new beginnings phase of transition through the maximum resistance of the temptation to go back to former position. In my
As I progress through my clinical experience, I have seen personal growth. Initially, when I began, I focused on completion of the immediate HPI, assessment, diagnosis, and treatment plan. Currently, I see myself thinking about long-term health goals for the patients. For example, for patients who have had a CVA, I find myself considering the life changes this condition has on patients who are recovering from this potentially debilitating condition. I think about the long-term treatment goals as it relates to controlling hypertension, cerebral vascular disease, and other associated cardiac disease complications. My knowledge base is beginning to expand past the immediate needs, and I am feeling more comfortable with common primary care concerns. I am not ready to be independent. However, I do recognize a lot of growth.
I believe an infographic would be an ideal digital marketing tool to get information about the app to new mothers. New mothers, and fathers, are figuring out their new routines, and how to manage their time while getting very little sleep. New mothers spend a lot of time sitting down feeding their baby. I don’t think they are enjoying many, if any, extended internet surfing sessions. They are more likely quickly scanning Facebook, or Instagram to post more pictures of the new addition, or reading the comments about the pictures that were posted previously. These new mothers are not going to spend a lot of time digging for information. Therefore, an infographic would get the important bullets of how this tracking app could help manage and create routines.
Communication. Being able to reach out to my child during this process has been great. Being able to have family support has not only made me feel comfortable during this transition, but my son has been feeling more comfortable too. When I decided to introduce the potty to my child, my mother told me it was best that I talked to Gabriel’s pediatrician. Being able to get some advice from Dr. Rao was extremely helpful. Communication helps especially during this time. For eight weeks I have had an opportunity to study my son’s behavior. His behavior was his way of communication with me. When we first started, he reminded me he was not fully ready. A couple weeks later, his attitude changed. Darcie Kiddoo explains, “in reality, toilet training
