Informed consent

Dear Young Mum:

Yes, she’s gorgeous. Growing beautifully. You’re doing everything right.

I understand you were concerned about her vaccinations. It’s okay, there’s a lot of information out there and it can be hard to sort out the true from the woo. You just want to do the best for her.

I want to say thank you for asking me, for voicing your concerns, for allowing me to voice my bias and the reasons behind it. I want to say thank you for listening with an open mind. I want to say thank you for asking for clarification.

You made the right decision.

You also made all the time I spent in school to get to this point worthwhile.
