$100 American Express Gift Card + Pampers Swaddlers Giveaway! Ends 11/26


 Disclosure: No compensation received for this post. 

 Lately, I have been joining in to quite a few events, to bring all of you some awesome giveaways, and this was one I just couldn't pass up, participating in. Not just because there is a seriously awesome prize, but also because there is an awesome campaign behind it, that is designed, straight from Pampers, to honor the nurses, who make things okay, when you're having your baby.

My due date is in less then a week now, so this campaign really touches home for me. Without the support from the nurses, it just wouldn't be any easier. It's already scary as it is, and the nurses that are there to help support you, just make it all a little better.

Anyway, I will let you all get on to the giveaway - The following is Tales from a Southern Mom's story:

"There was a time when I wanted to be a nurse, and then life got in the way and I got married, started working had two kids, moved and it just never seemed to be the right time. I am always so impressed with what nurses to and how far they will go for their patients. In honor of that Pampers is launching the Thank You Nurses campaign, and I can't

think of any profession more worthy! When I had my first son I was a mere 19 years old, and I knew nothing about what was happening, even though my husband and I went to La Maze classes. It was just very different then, they did not tell you the real story, or maybe they did and I refused to believe it. I went into labor on a Tuesday morning very early and I called my husband we showed up at the hospital and we were sent home. This happened most of Tuesday and finally by late Tuesday night they kept me and we were off to the races. Wednesday came and still no baby, all during that time I had numerous nurses taking care of me and helping me try to have the baby.


 At one point my contractions were so intense I had three people rubbing my back. At that same time a nurse that had been with me for most of the day was concerned because they could not hear the baby's heartbeat and she wanted me to roll over quickly, I would not let go of my husband or my mom's hand and she could not quite get to me, at this point she pushed me on to my side and fell down onto the floor. At the time, I did not realize that my baby was in danger, but that nurse did and she ended up in the emergency room that night with a broken arm from her fall. My son was born by C-Section on Thursday morning where we learned he was almost 10 pounds and would not have been able to fit in the birth canal. His heart was stopping because he was being crushed. What I remember the most about that nurse? That she cared more about me and my son than she did herself. Nurses are like that, and I know many that have done things similar, some don't get the breaks or the help they need, some are just tireless in helping their patients, bring new life into the world, or take care of sick moms. I would love to nominate the nurse that helped me have my son healthy, but he is 28 years old now, and I don't remember he name, the hospital is even closed down. I will never forget her and my dad even sent her flowers the next day, to thank you for going above and beyond.

  1. yes I have had several awesome nurses that have taken good care of me and my family

  2. Nurses who were in the delivery room with my daughter were awesome! Thank God for great nurses who go above and beyond!

  3. Ive had nurses go to bat for me with all my 6 kids. With the 1st two, the doctors were so controlling and I wanted to be able to walk, and doc didnt want me to. They got me through the tough times and loaded me up with plenty of extra fluids when babies were born,to keep up my strength and prepare for breastfeeding. I had 3 sisters but only one had been a mother by then and she lived far away. Some of my nurses were truly like a sister!

  4. I do not have a special nurse so i give phrase to all
