I am once again working in a mother/baby unit for the first time since nursing school. The hospital I work in has the same or similar demographics to the one I worked in in nursing school. But now married mothers seem to be the exception and not the rule. For that matter, mothers with a significant other who even shows up for a baby's birth are not as common as I would have thought. I am startled at the number of teenage girls having babies. Babies having babies.
Is this an irreversible trend? Does anyone besides me even think this trend should be reversed?
