Sarah, your post made me think about my experience navigating healthcare during pregnancy, birth, and postpartum. I felt safest and most cared for by the doctors who were interested in what I needed and asked lots of questions. I felt scared and uncomfortable with doctors who seemed more interested in asserting their authority and didn’t take what I said seriously. Fortunately, the most humble, kind woman delivered my baby, and she made such a lasting impression on me. I honestly think about her all the time because of how valuable her kindness was in that vulnerable moment.
