Lab 9

One night around 10 the fire alarm started and I found myself in the apartment’s lobby with other resistant. There was crowd but just only one thing got my attention, a mother with her newborn with nonstop crying. I saw that lady before and always was jealous about her connection and bounding with her baby girl. in But that night she couldn’t stop her crying. I was thinking the first action for every mother would be breastfeeding but she never attempts for that. Because of that I tried to make myself close to her while she was talking to the other women that has a very similar face and body shape to her and I assume that she could be he sister and I was right. Why she doesn’t start breastfeeding her baby instead of being anxious and talking with her sibling?! My sense of curiosity and bad feeling for the baby made me to eavesdrop their conversation.

Lab 6

It was my first day in the post-partum unit and I could heart Pam’s voice “where is Atieh?” I was shocked, I like babies and when they are in the good mood, laughing at every single stupid mimic but not when they are screaming and their voice is like a borer to your brain. I felt I am in the empty jar with a dice and shaken. “You assigned for birth center today.” I was like a person who received her freedom letter

Part One: Program and Topic

My program of study is nursing and my topic is about breastfeeding. I choose this topic based on my experience in the postpartum unit and also the importance and long lasting protection of breast milk for the neonate.

 Part Three: Textual Research Notes


E.Perry, Shannon. Maternal Child Nursing Care in Canada. Toronto: Elsevier Canada, 2013.

  • This book is being taught as the main book in second year of nursing program in Dawson. It is a reference for all my practices in placement sittings and also for my class tests and final OIIQ test to get my RN licence. This book contains most of the essential information for my article and also is really easy to read and understand even for a person who has no background in nursing care.


Nix, Staci. Williams’ Basic Nutrition and Diet Therapy. Toronto: Elsevier Canada, 2013.

  • I would like to use this book because one of the main questions of new mother is “what kind of food can increase my breast milk?” or “what kind of diet prevents gaining weight while I need to eat and drink more to have breast milk ready for my baby?” Therefore, having a proper diet during pregnancy and breastfeeding period could save the mothers’ shape and also provide the essential nutrients for new mother and baby. I found the Canada’s Food Guide booklet with its details in this book for the first time that is really interesting and simple to follow to ensure that minimal recommendations for all nutrients are met.


I.Eidelman, Arthur. “American Academy of Pediatrics.” 27 02 2012. 2015

  • I find this article interesting because it reveals that breastfeeding results in improving infant and maternal health outcomes. This article talks about all unique nutritional and non-nutritional benefits to infants and mothers and in turn, optimizes infant, child, and adult health as well as child growth and development.


E.Svenssin, Kristin. “International Breastfeeding Journal.” 11 03 2013.

  • This article contains the latch-on aspect of breastfeeding. I would use this article for the sake of showing the effect of latch-on problem on early termination of breastfeeding. Teaching and assessing the new mother is really important and can encourage mom to continue breastfeeding for at least six months.


Ludwick, Ruth. “The Online Journal of Issues in Nursing.” n.d.>

  • As a nursing student, I am observing and caring many mothers with different ages, cultures, ethics and values. Different cultures have different ways for hospitalization and consequently, a nurse must respect to all cultural and religious concerns of patient and their families. Breastfeeding and its consequences are strongly affected by believes. Therefore, I find this article interesting that is mainly about cultural values and ethical conflicts that can have a huge impact on breastfeeding processes.


Wolf, Joan. “babble.” 2011.>.


Collazo, Julie Schwietert. “STIR.” 2014. 2015>

  • Both number 6 and 7 are about the mothers that choose not to breastfeed as well as their proposed reasons. As I said before, choosing breast milk or bottle milk is a personal choice and no one should judge a mother’s decision. For me, it is really interesting to read and know about the reasons and I am sure that knowing them can be a valuable light in the way of teaching and encouraging mothers for breastfeeding.


“Protecting, Promoting and Supporting Breastfeeding.” May 2014. 2015>.

  • I like this governmental article that sheds a light on strategies that give mothers sense of protection and support from her family members and society. Identify barriers and explore solutions for mothers who breastfeed can encourage more women to choose breast milk rather than bottle.


Linda Folden Palmer. “The Baby Bond.” July 2013.>.

  • This article talks more about bonding aspect of breastfeeding and skin-to-skin effect. Cuddling with baby during breastfeeding can make really strong connections between mothers and babies and also effects on baby’s developmental stage and milestone. I would like talk about bonding because the very first action after delivery is to put baby on mother’s breast and ask the father to take off his t-shirt and tried to keep his baby in his arms which makes a really nice and effective connection at the first minute of the baby’s life.


“What To Expect.” 2014.>.

  • Some women just cannot breastfeed their babies due to breast reduction surgery, illness and some conditions such as HIV, drug abuse and etc. Therefore, I will talk about these barriers that should be noted when we are talking and encouraging a new mother about breastfeeding.

Part 3:

Nursing is a profession in the field of health care system that is focused on the care of adults, children, families and communities so that they may achieve, maintain and promote optimal health and quality of life.

Part 4:

Eating proper an enough food to maintain health and improve quality of life is the very first and vital concern for any mammal. Once a baby open his eyes to this world due to his disabilities, first need is providing him proper and adequate nutrients that is easy access

Part 5:

I would write my article for:

1.World Health Organization (WHO) because WHO is directing and coordinating control for health within the United Nations.

2. Unicef, Nutrition, Breastfeeding

Part 2:

Why breastfeeding?

Scientifically breast milk has more nutritional benefits rather than bottle feeding but there are a lot of causes that the new mothers give up and start with formula to survive their babies. There is no doubt in the beneficial of breast feed such as increasing immune system and bounding between mother and newborn. There are plenty of reasons for choosing formula, baby with a poor sucking reflex, not able to latch, painful nursing and  the fear of not enough milk for baby, busy mother with her job and a lot more.

Logical Argument

Before 1994, diabetes in children was generally caused by a genetic disorder — only about 5 percent of childhood cases were obesity-related, or Type 2, diabetes. Today, according to the National Institutes of Health, Type 2 diabetes accounts for at least 30 percent of all new childhood cases of diabetes in this country.

Then I got lucky. I went to college, joined the Navy Reserves and got involved with a health magazine. I learned how to manage my diet. But most of the teenagers who live, as I once did, on a fast-food diet won’t turn their lives around: They’ve crossed under the golden arches to a likely fate of lifetime obesity. And the problem isn’t just theirs — it’s all of ours.

Pathetic Argument

I grew up as a typical mid-1980’s latchkey kid. My parents were split up, my dad off trying to rebuild his life, my mom working long hours to make the monthly bills. Lunch and dinner, for me, was a daily choice between McDonald’s, Taco Bell, Kentucky Fried Chicken or Pizza Hut. Then as now, these were the only available options for an American kid to get an affordable meal. By age 15, I had packed 212 pounds of torpid teenage tallow on my once lanky 5-foot-10 frame.

Ethical Argument

And I’d say the industry is vulnerable. Fast-food companies are marketing to children a product with proven health hazards and no warning labels. They would do well to protect themselves, and their customers, by providing the nutrition information people need to make informed choices about their products. Without such warnings, we’ll see more sick, obese children and more angry, litigious parents. I say, let the deep-fried chips fall where they may.

Analogy Argument

If ever there were a newspaper headline custom-made for Jay Leno’s monologue, this was it. Kids taking on McDonald’s this week, suing the company for making them fat. Isn’t that like middle-aged men suing Porsche for making them get speeding tickets?

Part Seven

As a student nurse who is working in the women’s pavilion, postpartum unit in royal Victoria Hospital, I am observing and caring for the lots of mothers with different age, culture, ethic and values. They may give birth to their first baby or second but the only common concern for them is baby’s nutrition and baby’s weight. I’d say most of them choose breastfeeding with all the difficulties that they may have for the first time. Without any doubt starting feeding a baby after the stress and anxiety that caused by labour and delivery process could not be an easy intervention for mother. Frustration, changing the hormones level in the body, thinking about baby’s future and her multi roles and much more other affecting things are causes for them to become……..

Part One

The writer I brought in today is Jane Austen who is the one of the most prominent comic writer in literary style who relies on a combination of irony and realism. She described her feelings and characters of ordinary life with a harsh judge of the society that she lived. In her novels she presents her views via her characters and their actions with witty, wise narration.

Part two

I was born in the country with lots of limitation, interference of religious in politic, and conservatism political ideology with more emphasized on tradition, authority and less equality. During my school age, I could see the people who was happy with that situation and tried to be on their way and in contrast
