“I wanted to tell you also that you don’t know but because of you I decided to have my baby at home instead of a hospital.
I’m really happy and proud that I did. I never saw you or got a chance to tell you that I read your birth story a few years ago and thought it was something I’d like to do when I had a kid. You’re one of the first people I’d ever known that had done that. After reading your story I looked into it further and found all I needed to know that I could do it too. I pushed that baby out right into my husband’s hands. It’s my proudest moment.
I hope this doesn’t seem weird that I’m just e-mailing you this out of nowhere. I thought maybe it would be nice to tell you that I admire a lot of what you do.”
This is perhaps some of the awesomest feedback I’ve ever had. I don’t need to say much more about it except, hooray!
