It’s a particular treat and privilege to be asked to treat newborn babies. Their “newness” is beautiful in itself, possibly because in that moment they show most clearly the miracle of how we all come into being.
Of the people I saw this morning, two had waited a couple of weeks before coming to see me. That’s very normal – we are all used to having occasional aches and pains and a lot of them just go away on their own after a few days. Those that don’t clear up on their own are the ones that people bring in with them. And the question here is “why not”? almost more than “why do they happen in the first place?”
