My archives might be a little outdated especially the older blogs.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

Three Days of Feedback

I love the interaction and feedback from my blog and book readers! Hayden's mom recieved my book this weekend and each night for three nights sent me a note sharing her thoughts. I have consent to share them.

1. I absolutely loved this book! The events described in the first pages of this book made me cringe, and my heart sank for the mothers and babies. I am so glad that you kept record, and went on to become an advocate for natural childbirth & breastfeeding. Hearing the positive experiences made me all warm & fuzzy! lol I will recommend this book to any mother-to-be, or mother planning to have more children.(I have already recommended it to everyone I know!) You can have a wonderful birth experience!!! This book will truly open your eyes to how magical it can be!

2. I am truly mesmerized and touched by your book. Your words have brought tears to my eyes. I love how personable and vulnerable you are, letting the world in like that, but it's a great thing. I also love that you are a medical professional that supports homebirths. We need more like you!


3. I just wanted to tell you that I officially finished your book today! I started on Saturday when I had the flu, I kept reading because I couldn't put it down!!! You are such an inspiration and I cannot sing you enough praises. I wish there were more Dr's out there like you & your husband! I didn't feel like I was reading a book at all. It felt more like my best friend letting me in on all of her juicy, personal, details. The way you expressed yourself in Permission to Mother was wonderful. I have 2 girlfriends I am co-hosting a baby shower for in November and I am definitely getting each of them a copy! Every time I sat down and began to read, I wanted to go grab my daughter and cuddle, & nuzzle, & nurse her all day! Even though she's over 20lbs. and isn't quite 6 months yet, you have also given me the extra nudge I need to continue wearing her. : ) And I'm sorry it took you so long to find cloth diapers! lol I started using them when she was about 2 1/2 months old and have never looked back! Plus, I get to pick out a ton of fun, pretty covers! (We're using pre-folds!) Basically, I just want to say THANK YOU!!!! For all that you have done, and for all of the life I know that you continue to affect! God Bless!

It makes me so happy to know that she wants to cuddle and nuzzle and nurse all day with her baby. That is one of the main feelings I wanted to convey! Thank you Hayden's mom for your feedback that will continue to help others. I hope you come back to the blog and visit.

These comments are wonderful following in the same tone of the story that is told in this book.

Again, good work Dr. Punger, you have touched so many with your words.
