It’s been over 15 years since I had my first child, but I still remember that it was a nurse named Kim who helped me get through those long hours. As a new mother, I had no idea what to expect or what to do and she made me feel so at ease and relaxed, like I was doing everything right.
Women need a huge support system during childbirth, but they also need that support once the baby has been delivered and they’ve been drained of every ounce of energy. One woman posted a photo showing just how valuable nurses and doulas and anyone else who helps a woman through not only through labor, but during recovery as well.
The picture has gone viral
