3000 words

First of all… I apologise for that close up of my face.
Second, I apologise for being absent. I am currently working on an assignment that is draining the life out of me. 3000 words of blah.

Here is the topic of which I have to write about…

Critically discuss the challenges that may be encountered by the new graduate nurse/ midwife in one of the following areas within this domain:

One might think the world’s best mom would be someone with years of motherly experience and a number of kids — someone who has been doing it for a long time. My wife, Katie, doesn’t come close to qualifying under those terms. You see, we’re new parents. Our first son, Randol Thomas, was born on Thursday at 12:56 a.m. at the incredibly young gestational age of 25 weeks and 4 days.
