The Nutritionist Reviews: Thank You Nurses + $100 AMEX Gift Card Giveaway -->

Thank You Nurses + $100 AMEX Gift Card Giveaway

This review was made possible by iConnect and Pampers. I was provided compensation to facilitate this post, but all opinions are 100% mine.


Since the day that Adalyn was born was one of the best days of my life, I remember the details of the day as if it was yesterday. I had quite a long labor (39 hours to be exact) but think of the whole experience fondly. Sure, it was painful but it brought my little baby girl into the world so of course, it was 100% worth it.

One part of my labor and delivery experience that I remember so fondly was my nurse Theresa. She was an angel to me and helped me have the best experience possible. She listened to my requests (hold the baby right after birth, delayed cord clamping and a couple of other things) without any issues.

When I was getting my epidural, she braided my hair for me- so sweet! When we got there, she asked me if I knew the sex of the baby. I said that it was a girl and she asked me her name. I told her it and then on the dry erase board in my room, she wrote "Welcome Adalyn Grace". This was so sweet and motivating to me to get Adalyn out of the womb so I could meet her.

During my labor and delivery, there was a lot of laughter and joking going on. It helped make the situation so calm and actually enjoyable. The rest of my stay at the hospital, the nurses were okay but not like Theresa. It was such a blessing that during my labor and delivery when I needed it most, I had a nurse that was incredible.


Pamper's has an awesome program going on right now called the Thank You Nurses Awards program which honors labor and delivery nurses, NICU nurses and postpartum nurses. I love this! Those nurses work very hard and don't necessarily get a thank you and very much deserve one.

Also, my sister-in-law Olivia is a labor and delivery nurse and I know that nurses go through a lot. I mean, women are often in the most pain that they have ever been in and the nurses have to take care of them through this- not necessarily the easiest job!


If you know a great nurse, nominate them for the Pampers Swaddlers Thank You Nurses awards from November 9th to December 14th. A nurse from each category will be announced in March and the grand prize winner will be announced in May. Prizes will be awarded and scholarships will be made in honor of these nurses to help nurses toward a Master's degree.

There is a Pampers #ThankYouNurses Twitter party going on November 19th from 8-9 PM CST. Prizes include AMEX gift cards plus diapers and wipes.

The giveaway will be for a $100 American Express gift card and a pack of Pampers Swaddlers to one reader.

  6. Wasn't sure if you meant to post the story here or in the actual raffle-copter widget. Anywho, I am thankful for a nurse that helped me with a certain time in my life I was dealing with a mental crisis. Shannon truly helped me see the light at the end of the tunnel and I am thankful for her to this day.

  15. My favorite nurse that most stands out is Nurse Janet. When I had my first baby, everything was totally new to me and my milk wasn't coming in. She told me to start pumping (as well as having the baby suck on my breast like I was doing). After trying a couple of pumping sessions, my milk finally came in and I was so relieved. I wish I would have started pumping to help get the milk going right away, but am so thankful to her for her advice! Julie smartsavvymama@gmail.com

  50. I am horrible because I don't know her name, but when i was pregnant, i had a lot of medical issues. It was so that I was on bedrest and had to be in the hospital more times than not. I was so frustrated and just started crying. She stopped what she was doing and just sat with me, assuring me that this would not be forever. And when my daughter was born, she came in and raved about how beautiful my baby was. That was sixteen years ago. I always think about her kindness and effort to soothe me.

  60. I would like to thank my super smart niece, Erika Tomms,an RN Nurse, 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! Thank you!
