My archives might be a little outdated especially the older blogs. My links above are all new and current.

I have only positive things to say about Permission to Mother, an autobiographical account of a thoughtful mother and clinician who courageously writes from her heart, soul, brain, and personal experience; who is open to change in her views and opinions and is not guided by the safety of rules of any group or the status quo; she is guided by love and openness to the experiences life brings her and her family. Her process benefits her and those around her and those who read her words. And to add to that, the writing style and story telling ability here make it a very enjoyable read speckled with both the humor and seriousness of life. ~Laura Keegan RN FNP, author of Breastfeeding with Comfort and Joy

My Pregnancy Belly Cast

While pregnant with David (my 3rd) , mental and spiritual preparation for my homebirth and getting comfortable with my body, included my creative expression. This is my second belly cast. My doula, Dawn, plastered me the day I went into labor. She decorated it in the following days. (Remember, we didn't know he was breech.)

Dorion Stanger, sculpture and owner of Pregnant Memory Sculpture says:

"The pregnancy memory sculpture is a declaration to your child of the pride you felt when mother and child were one."
My sister made a belly cast for me when I was about 28 weeks. It is so much fun to make a cast. It's a very healthy outlet and a great way to connect with your birth team.
I have one cast in my exam room. This one is in the office, but too big to be in the room. I'd be glad to show it off if you ask.
