Pregnancy One of the most difficult times to get comfortable during pregnancy is while sleeping, and as rest is particularly important for pregnant women, a maternity pillow might be the perfect solution for your pregnancy-related discomfort.
Health benefits include:
Ease back pain with a maternity pillow
Often the most comfortable position for sleeping during pregnancy is on one’s side. Sleep positioning is easier with maternity pillows.
As mentioned previously, the optimal position for sleeping for women while pregnant is on their side. A maternity pillow can facilitate this process.
Sleep longer and more soundly

Pregnancy is an exciting time in a woman’s life. Enjoy your pregnancy more by getting better night of sleep and enjoy the health benefits of being better rested.

Nurses: Leaders in Health Reform
This is an unprecedented year for transformational health system change. The illness care system is in crisis. Nursing!

Nurses led every major health reform in history. Nightingale reformed hospital and battlefield health. Mary Breckinridge, a nurse-midwife, reformed maternal-child and family health by founding the Frontier Nursing Service, educating and employing nurse-midwives, and establishing family care centers in the Appalachia Mountains. Today, nurses are showing up to lead by creating innovative health care delivery models and shaping public policy.

Now is the Time to Speak-Up as a Nurse.
Nurses comprise the largest number of health care providers. Speak up with other nurses. Form a nursing mastermind group to refocus your practice on health and create innovation together in whatever nursing arena you practice.

If the purpose of nursing is helping people become and stay well then nursing is about not only attending patients in hospitals and other tertiary care settings. The other 97% needs nursing in the form of primary care, health education, health coaching and wellness.

Who will decide the future of Nursing and Health Care?
