Perinatal Hospice Video – one year later
It was a year ago today that I posted my Perinatal Hospice video on Youtube. I (of course) had hopes that it would be seen and be effective, but living it out over the last year has been fascinating.
A very nice lady I know said “Doctors all over town should watch this!” and I internally giggled because I didn’t really make it for people who live/work here and know me (we kind of have that base covered). I didnt really imagine, however, that it would be seen in Kenya, Ukraine, Botswana, Iran or Qatar. My sons tell me “Mom, its the INTERNET, its ALL OVER THE WORLD quit being so amused by this”….but I will admit, as a child of the 70s and 80s where communicating with people on other continents was rare, the idea of making something viewed in 92 countries still leaves me terribly fascinated.
The other surprise was that I expected Canada to be the highest in views after the US, but it isn’t… there have been 491 views in Ireland. There was also a burst of 448 views in Sweden after being posted on a blog that I couldn’t read since it was in Swedish. It is being used to teach palliative care in London, Ontario and nationwide its used as a tool to illustrate Perinatal Bereavement Care during C-Sections.
I am fully aware that videos of animals farting can easily have a million views, so my 8700 is nothing compared to that, but I have great trust that even if one single person saw it in some given place, maybe they were just the right person and will use the idea to give just the right care to some baby who I may run into in Heaven. To me that is so exciting.
Sweet dear Erin, thanks so much for letting me be a part of your story. It is hard to see your sassiness come through in Rosanne’s gentle pictures, but I knew you were very sassy and you have taken the world by a storm. You aren’t done yet and I adore you.
