Neal, thank you for choosing this woman as a subject for an interview. The result is moving and very satisfying! I've never been pregnant but the idea of a medical professional listening to a woman and wanting her to have an empowering experience is so validating. In my work of supporting people with Multiple Sclerosis, I far more often hear of doctors and nurses and insurance companies scoffing at the patient and disbelieving their account of their symptoms and history. I wish we had MS midwives! The disease process is brutal enough without supportive medical care. It's a rare neurologist who finds the patient human enough to listen to. Thanks again for showing us another way of being with a patient.
