This is such a moving personal essay. Thank you for sharing your vulnerable experience advocating for herself and your babies, and offering insight into what must be an incredibly difficult time that those on the outside can't really understand. In doing so you have given a voice to many women, providing validation and understanding and enables them to feel less alone and unseen.
