It's vital that it be 'direct', meaning through an interaction with an engaged, trusted human. This is so important and so overlooked. No other substitute works. I wish this was clearly communicated to everyone BEFORE they decide to become parents.
Thank you!

How can we help potential parents understand this, even before their babies are born?
