Have you ever had a health care worker go above and beyond for you?
It seems like I've had so many hum-drum encounters with health workers (ie. nurses, doctors, pharmacists.....don't get me started on that one) that when there is a positive experience....it really shines brightly in my mind.
For me, it would be the delivery nurse that helped me through my last natural childbirth at Baylor Frisco. It's terrible that I didn't even catch her name to thank her properly, but there were moments when I really thought I couldn't continue with the pain of my natural childbirth, and this woman was AMAZING!
This OB nurse, knew just what to say to make me want to keep going with my plan, and exactly how to pat me or touch me in a reasurring way to show that she actually cared. And for anyone who has gone through natural childbirth, believe me....usually the last thing you want is anyone touching you.
I honestly credit her 100% for getting me through my 16 hour labor naturally, I just wish I knew her name so I could nominate her for Save the Children's Real Awards!
Quick! Take a minute before October 25th to nominate a health worker that you admire at www.theREALawards.com.
