My archives might be a little outdated especially the older blogs.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

Holiday Give-Away

I'd like to give three Permission to Mother books away before the holidays. There are three drawings and three blog posts to respond to.

The first way is simply to answer the question below in order to have your name entered into a drawing to win.

I'll enter every one's name who answered the question into a drawing and announce the winner on my blog next Thursday, December 11th. Comments need to be received before Wednesday, December 10 at 11:00 pm. I'll mail it to you if you are outside my county, otherwise I'll hold it for you at the office. Everyone is eligible, even if you already own a copy, and entered before and even if you won before.

My book makes a good present for the holidays, birthday, or new baby. You need to be available on Thursday to give me delivery information if you are out of town. I am offering the book at $20.00 in the office and on my
store through December 15th to guarantee Holiday delivery.

A very easy Question (which may be redundant for some of you):

How did you first hear about my book?

I heard about your book through your blog; I subscribed to your blog because of something you had written (or had been written about you) from your days as a resident, remembered your name, googled you, and here you were! :-)

I found your blog via a Google search on Zantec and breastfeeding and have read a library copy of your book.

Also, not sure where to post this question, but I am curious on if you have seen exclusively breastfed infants, particularly those with mothers who are vegetarian, that have vitamin B-12 deficiency? Thanks.

I found out about your book through this blog too. : )

Emily said...

I heard about your book on your blog and I think I got to your blog from the Rockstar's Wife's blog. I've also subscribed to your blog for a while because I like your approach to mothering, etc.

Beth S said...

note from paula k on facebook . . . all new mothers deserve to know how great birthing and mothering can be - kudos to you for writing the book

I found out about your book through this blog, which I found via a Google search for breastfeeding information.

I first heard about your book when I became a patient of yours and saw it in your office.

You have changed my life, but not in relation to childbirthing (I am done with that part of my life), but you have had such an influence that you will never know how far reaching your part in our altering our lives...in a good way!

Katrina said...

I saw it at your office :)

Christina said...

I heard about your book on the weekly Mothering e-newsletter. I'm especially interested in reading it because of the childbirth classes I teach & the postpartum support group I'm planning to start this winter!

Mama K said...

I first heard about your book on your myspace site, which I think I stumbled onto because of some common interest ... birth, maybe, or something like that.

Trish Chibas said...

I heard about your book from Jen. Love it!

Permission to Mother said...

I am loving the participation and the variety in referral sources!

Cindy, I have never thought to check a vegetarian (eats eggs and cheese) mother/baby pair for B12 defficiency.

I have had a baby in a vegan family with weight issues. I don't believe that the vegan lifestyle was the cause of the baby's poor weight game.

Important topic, perhaps I can bring it to the top of the blog at some point. Vegetarians are usually in good health if they are eating a lot of whole foods.

Christina, Your answer is so far the most interesting to me because I didn't know mothering had a enews and I didn't know there was any mention of PTM in it. I have not submitted the book to Mothering for a formal review. That should be a goal of mine in the next few weeks.

I first heard about it from your blog! I laid my hands on one (finally!) and got to speed read as much of it as I could while in your waiting room!

Fun Mama - Deanna said...

I learned about your book through amazon.com. I saw a list that you'd written on amazon, and I was intrigued by what you said (don't remember which list now or what I was looking for at the time). I followed the links to your blog, and actually learned about your book on your blog.

Jane Martin said...

I found out about Permission to Mother via your website and blog. I am hooked on your blog and love to read your insights on birth, mothering and healthy eating!

I heard about your book most recently through the blog--> http://womantowomancbe.wordpress.com/

I believe I'd heard about it previously at a LLL meeting too.
To Cindy, there are several vegan mothers that attend meetings with healthy babies and kids!

I first heard about your book from Courtney. -Becky R in NJ

Kristen's Raw said...

I'm pretty sure I found out about your book through your blog. There is no need to include my name in the drawing since I already have a copy (I posted a review on Amzn a short while ago).

For everyone else entering the drawing... if you don't win, this is definitely a terrific and extremely informative book that is worth every penny and beyond. Ask for it for the holidays :)

Cheers,
Kristen

Through your blog, which I found yesterday, because someone on a facebook attachment parenting group mentioned your blog. I think I heard about it once before that when I was researching baby slings a few months ago.
