My archives might be a little outdated especially the older blogs.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

Yeah Jen!

I am so priviliged to be with Jen at her house after the birth of her baby girl this afternoon (another birth I missed) . It is such an honor to see a newborn cuddled up with her mother undisturbed (except for my flash). Jen radiated through her pregnancy and she radiates today.

We saw The Orgasmic Birth movie together and attended a Birthing from Within workshop together. She's done so much more like yoga and hypnobirthing to get ready for this birth and the preparation paid off!

It brought me much happiness to see Dad greet me with a big smile and be at peace with this homebirth.

Check the top of my blog because I have another baby(!) to post about tonight, too.
