I had never been in the hospital in my adult life until I had my son at age 36.  I had a C-section, so my stay was a bit longer than planned, and I learned while I was there that nurses are some of the most special people on the planet. You can get free stuff from the Discover Nursing website, like a coloring book and book covers. Lots of kids dream of being a nurse when they grow up- maybe this freebie will encourage them!
