1. 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.
2. Breast milk is a natural gift that gives a baby valuable nutrition, strong immune defense and good psychological benefits if a mother chooses to breastfeed.
3. I read some interesting articles about the important relation between breastfeeding to lifelong benefits, bonding between mother and newborn and promoting neonate immune system.
4. I am always curious to know what are the benefits of breast milk for a baby in his/her future life and I believe every parent should be aware of this fact.
5. I have the obstetrics rotation in this semester so I have a close relation with mothers and their newborn. Assessing the breastfeed by a nurses is one of the most important interventions during the postpartum.
6. I would write my article for World Health Organization (WHO) because WHO is directing and coordinating control for health within the United Nations.
7. Baby’s nutrient is one the most challenging topics for the new parents and the health care system. Breast milk is the primary source of nutrition for newborns for the first six months of life before they are able to eat and digest other foods. Breastfeeding guaranties health benefits to mother and child. There is no commercial formula that can equal breast milk. Breast milk can provides appropriate amounts of carbohydrate, protein and fat besides providing essential vitamins, minerals, digestive enzymes and hormones. Also, antibodies and lymphocytes can transfer from mother to baby through breast milk that help the newborn resist infections. On the other hand, psychological development during breastfeeding that built up by bonding between mother and baby is the other significant aspect of breastfeeding. Breast milk is a natural and valuable gift of human creation that is free and ready to serve with all the necessary ingredients for a baby.
8. I might interview my clinical teacher who is working with children more than 20 years and my mother who did breastfeed to my sisters and me for about 2 years each!

    Atieh, this seems like an excellent topic. Raising awareness about the benefits of breastfeeding seems like a very noble project. What I especially like is that you’re looking into reasons why mothers choose not to breastfeed. You are looking at these reasons with compassion and empathy. They are good reasons why mothers choose not to, and by acknowledging that, you make your argument even more convincing–that the benefits are worth it. Really great. I think your position as both nursing student and experience int he obstetrics rotation places you as someone who has something unique and important to say on this subject. You ask a lot of great questions in your draft. I look forward to seeing you attempt to answer some of these.

    Excellent work so far.
