"I know I could not have done it without you."

Touching in... Hey Anastacia, I have a minute while Jeff holds the baby. We've been wanting to tell you how thankful we were to have you at our birth! We really, really appreciate everything you gave us. In the end, it really felt like you were meant to be at the birth and the perfect person to be there. I know I could not have done it without you. You gave me so much strength when I felt like I could not go on! I wish I could explain how hard that was for me when I was in the hospital. The contractions picked up really intensely but what was really making it worse was that nurse! She was good overall- but I did NOT like her touching me while I was contracting! I don't like to be touched when I'm laboring usually, and especially the way she touched me. I was getting really upset by her so I was struggling. And of course, I couldn't move around like I wanted. I started to feel like I was going to pass out, even feeling like I was on the edge of letting go myself... it was so hard! But I remember so vividly looking at you for help, for strength, for inspiration and you gave that to me! Thank you, so so much. Jeff is just as happy as I am. It was amazing to him, being so private, that even though he hadn't met you too much before the birth, how comfortable he felt with you and how he felt like you were perfect. Thank you for all you did for me, and we love you!!
