For any nurse out there -- whether you're the nurse that loves to take care of the mother, or the nurse that really loves taking care of those babies (the good ones, and ones that like a little drama!) remember what we are all working for. We all want healthy moms, we all want healthy babies, and our patients need someone to fight for this.
I genuinely believe that most people don't judge the ways that others navigate the emotional, complicated, deeply personal terrain of motherhood. Perceived judgment can still slice deeply, but I think we need to remember that the root of what we sense may be in our own sensitivity and not in the mind of the other.
