This particular show brought tears to my eyes as I listened to it on my way home Sunday morning. I was working all Saturday during the day and all night on the Labor and Delivery floor at a hospital in New York City. When I heard Elizabeth Walker read "giving birth is like jazz, something from silence, then all of it" it literally took my breath away. That is exactly what it's like. Then when she went on to talk about the how the expectant is no longer the celebrity.... incredible. It was such wonderful timing that I happen to tune in at that moment as I was leaving the labor floor. Ms Tippet, you mentioned in your last show that most people come across your show by accident, I find that is true for me over and over again.
Thank you so much for your show. It is what makes NPR glow.
