Hauntingly perceptive and beautifully written, it allows the listener to transform alongside her, and watch what she discovers in our carefully cultivated, yet often misguided standard of care. The author demonstrates through engaging narrative and laser-sharp wit how the unbearable is borne. She comes to understand the fatal flaws in her profession and in her own past actions as a physician. She also achieves, through unflinching presence, a crystalline vision of a new and better possibility.
Using her exceptional recall, Awdish fashions an elegant, yet urgent call to action. As she finds herself up against the same self-protective partitions she was trained to construct as a medical student and physician, she artfully illuminates the dysfunction of disconnection. Shatteringly personal, and yet wholly universal, she offers a brave roadmap for anyone navigating illness. At the same time, she presents physicians with a new paradigm and rationale for embracing the emotional bond between doctor and patient. All told, she cogently outlines the redemptive possibilities of dismantling the barriers to connection in all relationships.

Dr. Awdish literally breaths life into the root of patients trauma that is often and unknowingly caused by the people meant to help. I wouldn't wish this experience on anyone, but the knowing, it would change everything. This book should be required reading for EVERY provider and those who teach new providers. "Once you know better, you do better" - Maya Angelou Thank you Dr. Awdish for such an incredible journey into you life. I hope to bring your experience with me as we begin teaching a new way in Obstetrics.
