Welcome, Kihm.  It's been mentioned that there might be some things behind the mother's arm.  Might I suggest that if you think there are those things, to ask your distributor for advice as to whether leave them out or not.  It's not up to us in the forum to have that say. 

I concur with Kiska on the skin tones and Joann on the shape of the mother's sleeve.

In addition to the colors being wrong as noted above, I think drawing outlines over the original to get the shape of the folded sleeve and shadows would help. Take a look at this which I think helps to explain:

When you restore damaged areas that had shadows, it's important to restore the shading so you don't get a flat, 2D and slightly artificial look. 

If you brighten a dull image, you need to preserve tones in the whites. There's a bunch of ways to do that, but I prefer to use an adjustment layer to darken just the too-bright areas and let the main adjustment area for the overall image set the overall brightness. I also think it's easier to do color separately (I use a curves adjustment layer but again, there's many approaches).

I think there are a couple of objects under the pillow behind the mother's arm. Could be controls for buttons to summon the nurse. You could leave those out, but that's what the sleeve is folded around, so you may need to see if the sleeve looks OK folded without those objects.

Hope this helps

I don't have Affinity but I noticed the skin tones are very yellow and green. And the repair edges are sharper than the original.

It was beautiful, Shadow. Even more so when the sun hit it this morning.  The glistening light always warms my heart.

Gorgeous. We are so grateful the snow stayed in the panhandle. Stay safe and warm Candy.  :)

While he got the sun, we got the snow. 

It's still cold out but the sun is out today!
