She saw a correlation between hand washing, clean linens, and daily bathing as a means to bringing her patients to a better health status. Several of her theories, even though 150 years old, are used today in the in-patient setting. Personal hygiene and clean linens are offered each day because of Nightingale. From the time of Nightingale until the Civil war, there was no formal education for nurses. The term nurse was used for anybody who administered care to the needy, the sick, or the poor.
Personal Response- Gwen Harwood- “Mother who gave me life” The poem “Mother who gave me life” utilises Harwood’s personal experiences along with reflection of human history to the self-sacrifice of motherhood. The diminishment of a mother’s relationship with her daughter, is made everlasting through the nurturing role of “motherhood” that is rooted deep into human instinct. Individual experience is portrayed by Harwood through the more personal tones of reflection and nostalgia, personal pronouns express the intimate and deep connection between mother and daughter “Forgive me the wisdom I would not learn from you” the authentic contemplation on Harwood’s behalf shines a light on the universal truisms that come with motherhood. The cyclical imagery “women bearing women…for the wild daughters becoming women” suggests Harwood’s recognition of the generations and history of women, through exploring the history of motherhood, Harwood conveys the universal truisms which remain timeless and relevant to today’s and future’s society. The reflection on the continuity of motherhood through the maternal line “your mother, and hers and beyond” expresses the accumulation of motherhood throughout time, the sibilance of “speech growing stranger” evokes the mystical mood of an ancient past.
Athene was of course one of the most important people in Odysseus’ life . Athene helped odysseus physically and mentally, buts he was also helped by Athene telling others what to do to enable odysseus to find Xenia. For example, Athena appeared in a dream of the Phaeacian princess Nausicaa, disguised as her friend. She encourages the young princess to go to the river the next day to wash her clothes so that she will appear more fetching to the many men that shall see her. The next morning, Nausicaa goes to the river, and while she and her handmaidens are waiting for the laundry to dry they play ball.

I would ask parents for advice on the care of baby's hair and have been told in the past to use a wide toothed comb to gently remove tangles and use a gentle shampoo or jojoba oil to help prevent breakage. Babies should have there teeth cleaned twice a day using circular movements. For very small babies I start cleaning teeth as soon as they appear and do it a bath time as it can be very messy. A soft small headed toothbrush should be used. The health visitor can advise on cleaning teeth and will also
She believed that her tradition was important enough to pass on to the narrator, she wanted to show her first hand that the role that she played in everyone's life at the public bath house was important also. I was proud of her while reading the story that she did not give up her tradition based on how her daughter in law felt. I think these stories showed you that there are many types of women in the world: some who invite challenge for a better life, and some who are content with the security of having a good life but maybe no
Once hired, these women ﬁeldworkers often ﬁnd themselves at the margins of their organizations (Vasquez Garcia 2001; O’Reilly 2004) or discover that they, too, are the targets of development efforts (Springer 2001; O’Reilly 2004).

Lakesha Gummeson PSY 235 Topic 1 Paper: Water birth and the pros and cons March 15, 2010 A water birth is when a mother-to-be gives birth in a tub full of warm water. Some moms go through the labor in the water, but get out when it is time for the delivery. Others choose to stay in the water throughout the whole process. The whole idea of water birth is that, since the baby has spent months inside the amniotic sac, it will be gentler for the baby to be birthed into an environment like the baby is familiar with. Also because it is gentler on the baby then the birth will not be as stressful for the mom.
In my opinion the most important Idea in this essay is to be aware about the psychological and physical transition that a woman goes through. She mentioned in the essay “let us recognize the wisdom of our elders and pass it on to the next generation of women through the simple act of putting down the camera and doing a load of laundry, or by holding the baby while a mother takes a long-deserved shower or nap”. 4. What is the writers tone in the essay? What evidence do you have in the essay to support your answer?
The homemaker is in charge of everything domestic including cooking cleaning and child rearing. This idea is presented in the film as Nicole (one of the mothers) is the clear-cut breadwinner of the family and Joules (the other mother) is the obvious homemaker. There are many characteristics that would force the viewer to label Nicole the breadwinner including the obvious that she is the one in the family who works. She is a doctor who is carrer orientated and often her career takes precedence over her family life. This is demonstrated in the scene when she prepares a bath for Joules and forgets the bath salts, instead of simply going to get them the phone rings and she ends up talking to one of her patients leaving Joules hanging in the bath waiting for her.
