My archives might be a little outdated especially the older blogs.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

Meet my Cover Models!


"Mom, will I ever be in the newspaper?" asks Onika a few months ago.

A few days later, I just happen to e-mail Joan seeking consent to use their photo in(side) my book.

Joan explained to her daughter, Onika, "This is even better than being in the paper!"

I also submitted several photos for cover design. This photo of Joan and Onika, fit the format! I was biased towards this photo because my idea for title came from one of Joan's e-mails, "You've been an inspiration to us in so many ways. It's like you've given us 'permission'...to nurse just the way we want to, for how long we want to. " For me the cover photo and the title are associated.

I waited till I was absolutely certain that this wasn't going to fall through to share the news with Onika that she was going to be on the cover of my book.

I haven't seen her since she was a baby. It was my pleasure and a lot of fun to bring her an autographed copy of the book today. She was so sweet to be waiting for me on the driveway. Onika flipped through the book and asked me how I can write so much. She happily pointed out the interior photos of breastfed babies to her mom. The influence Onika's birth had on me is also a chapter in the book. Thank you Onika and Joan for letting me use this photo. Did you see the link in my previous blog post; your picture is in the local internet newspaper. I hope your photo will be in many newspapers. :)
