My archives might be a little outdated especially the older blogs.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

Conference Exhibit

I am showing off the posterboard my mom and sister made for me. As you can see they matted many of the reviews from amazon or my from my e-mail so I could display them. I was at the conference for the Florida Lactation Consultant Association so there was a lot of interest in the book and what I do. The IBCLC's enjoyed reading your reviews. I have room on the board to add a few more reviews and photos. I also framed some reviews and laminated a few (laying on the table) and hang them in my office.

I appreciate all who have asked about the interest the book at conference. Overall it's really great. I suppose if I retired from practice and motherhood, I could go on tour full-time to promote the book. Obviously, I am not doing that. The book is limited somewhat as to how much I can do and how efficient I am. Of course, the reviews, links, and word-of-mouth goes along way and is so appreciated!

I find it interesting at how many times I've been asked to give a talk. Like, just because I wrote a book (in my spare time), people now think I want to volunteer to give speeches in my other spare time. I've been asked so many times, I wouldn't have time to do ANYTHING else if I agreed to all. I am only seriously interested in one invite, TBA later.

I do expect being at the conference will help the forward momentum of the books exposure and number of office consults. In time I should be getting more feedback and discussion. Here is another letter I received:

Hi Denise,

I am a pediatrician/IBCLC in Connecticut. I just read your book cover to cover this evening after returning from 3 very rewarding housecalls for nursing moms/babies. Thank you so much for such a great and very personal book!! I am a mother of four. My eldest is 8 years old and my youngest is turning 2 soon. I am feeling such pangs for another newborn. (Essentially I'm having a hard time moving on the the next phase of life!!) I enjoyed your book so much...I think we have a lot in common in our experiences with our babies and our styles of raising our children....although kudos to you for home schooling. I'm not sure I have the strength to do it, or the ability to do it well!! Similar to you, I also delivered a "vaginal breech." She was my first-born, and I had a very enlightened and capable OB who honored my request in a hospital setting (so that the c/s room was readily available!!). I really just wanted to say thank you. I will re-read this book often, and I will suggest it to many moms in my practice!!
