It seems like only yesterday that I was 9 months pregnant and about to pop. In reality, it was almost 2 years ago! I still remember how scared and nervous I was when they admitted me to the hospital. I am so thankful that I had some wonderful nurses to help me through it all. They were amazing!
One nurse in particular helped me a lot. She talked me through everything and gave me so much support. She gave me some much needed encouragement when I felt like I couldn’t do anymore. I am so grateful for her just getting me through those moments until I got to meet my beautiful baby girl. I even nominated her for the hospital’s “Thank you” awards that they had. I still wished that I could do more to show my appreciation.
If you had a nurse that helped you in so many ways, Pampers is helping you say Thank You. They are having a Thank You Nurses Awards program that will honor nurses in 3 categories: Labor & Delivery, Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) and Postpartum. You can share your story about how a nurse helped you and nominate them for the award.
You can nominate your favorite nurse by December 14, 2015. There will be one winner in each category and they will receive:
- A one-year membership to the Association of Women’s Health, Obstetric and Neonatal Nurses (AWHONN), attendance at the 2016 AWHONN Convention, Procter & Gamble care packages, and more. Visit tongal.com/pampersnurses
for full prizing details.
- In honor of these nurse winners, three Pampers Swaddlers scholarships will be made available to help nurses from underrepresented groups complete their studies toward a Master of Science in Nursing degree.
- See details and official rules at spr.ly/6181BPvMF.
- Winner must be a resident of the US or Puerto Rico, 18 years or older.
- Nomination period ends 12/14/15 at 3PM EST.
Isn’t that awesome! I love that we can show our gratitude for all that nurses do to help us. I know that we don’t show our appreciation in the moment and that they have such hard jobs. This is just a small way to say thank you. It really takes a special person to be a nurse.
There will also be a Twitter party where you can win some great prizes! The Pampers #ThankYouNurses Twitter Party, hosted by iConnect will take place on November 19 from 8-9pmCST. Prizes will include:
Prize 1: $50 AMEX plus diapers and wipes
Prize 2: $75 AMEX plus diapers and wipes
Prize 3: $125 AMEX plus diapers and wipes

I’ll never forget one particular nurse. Her name was Sophia. She helped me when I was in labor with my first son. She was so sweet and funny. I was so scared and stressed about giving birth, but she was very reassuring and motivating. She was very attentive and even stayed an hour past the end of her shift, because she wanted to be with me until I gave birth. I was pushing for almost three hours, the OBGYN told me that if I didn’t deliver after three hours, I would have to have a C-section. Sophia kept me going, I was exhausted after 14 hours of labor and not getting any sleep for the past 34+ hours. I’m sure that my baby boy would have been delivered safely if she wasn’t there, but she made it enjoyable, even when I was in pain. My son was in the NICU for the first couple days due to me having a fever when he was delivered (just a precaution). She was off for two days after I delivered, but she came to visit me and my baby. She really went above and beyond. Anyone to have her by their side during delivery is very lucky.
I would nominate my super smart niece who works tirelessly and seems to always be on call for our town’s Nursing Home. She’s been a charge nurse, head of life support, and much much more! She’s very good with the elderly, patient, kind, caring, and always makes time to answer her family’s medical questions too. In addition to being a nurse, she’s a wife, mother of two small boys and drives an hour at least a day to get to work. I wish I could give her a vacation! <3 Thank you!!
