Last fall we encouraged you to nominate your favorite Nurse for the first annual Thank You Nurses campaign. #ThankYouNurses is a partnership with the Association of Women’s Health, Obstetric, and Neonatal Nurses (AWHONN), honors nurses across three award categories: Labor & Delivery, NICU and Postpartum. These nurses leave a deep, long-lasting impression that fosters a bond of trust and transcends the hospital experience for new mothers. From holding their hands during labor, to teaching them how to change a diaper, nurses dedicate themselves to providing the best care for mom and baby.
To celebrate National Nurse Appreciation Week, Pampers Swaddlers, the first diaper worn by millions of babies, has announced a grand prize nurse honoree to acknowledge her dedication and commitment to making life better for babies and new parents. The grand prize honoree will be featured in an upcoming Pampers advertisement placed with AWHONN.
The #ThankYouNurses Award Grand Prize Honoree
We are happy to announce that Labor & Delivery nurse, Anne Gallagher, was selected as the Pampers Swaddlers #ThankYouNurses Award Grand Prize honoree! Anne has been a nurse for 38 years and is currently a nurse at University of Illinois Hospital. She focuses on empowering moms to form special bonds with their newborns and advises parents to take cues from their baby because “all the instincts are right there.” She says that this empowers parents and allows them to realize they know what to do.

Do you have a nurse to thank this week?
Nurses help new moms learn how to care for their newborns and encourage healthy development right from the start. Because of their trust in nurses, new moms can be rest assured that everything is taken care of. Throughout the years, parents will always remember their baby’s first cry, first cuddle, first hiccup, first diaper, and they’ll always remember the nurse that helped them transition into parenthood.
