My archives might be a little outdated especially the older blogs.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

I would like my friend Katherine Stanglin to have this book for Mother's Day (her 2nd Mother's day as her baby boy just turned a year old!). She helped me a great deal through my birthing and breastfeeding, and family issues, and was there for me during a really tough time (PPDD and all). She is now an aspiring doula in training.( I asked her the other day if she had read this book and she had not heard of it, but I know she would LOVE it and get lots of encouragement/inspiration from it, as I have. I just got my copy in the mail last week and I love this book. It is helping me give myself "Permission to Mother", and have the strength to stand up for my parenting choices amidst family comments and difficulties of living in the bible belt we call Garland, Texas.
Thank you in advance for the chance! :)

Thank you for a chance to win your book!

I would love to give a copy of Permission to Mother to my own mother. She has always been an advocate of breastfeeding and mother's rights. When she delivered me 28 years ago, her desires for a natural birth were whisked away when she arrived at the hospital by an x-ray (!) and her doctor telling her that her pelvis was 'too small.' My sister and I were both delivered by c-section, and to this day, she seems wistful about what could have been. My mom went on to become an RN and worked for many years in Labor & Delivery, always a breastfeeding advocate. She encouraged both my sister and I when we both gave birth (vaginally) last year to breastfeed, which I'm proud to say we have both continued exclusively, despite lack of support from other family members and friends! She also wore us as babies and practiced many aspects of AP. All in all, I'd love for my mom to read this book and feel empowered by the choices that she did make as a mom; what better gift could I give her? (Also, I'm pretty sure she'd let me borrow it when she was done. ;)

I'd like to give a copy to a dear friend of mine who is about 5 months pregnant with her first baby. Her own mother died last year, so she'll be relying on friends for any and all mothering advice. Although I think she has a great circle around her, this would be a wonderful book to introduce her to attachment parenting. She is already planning a birth with a midwife and to breastfeed, so I hope your book will just confirm for her that her natural mothering instincts are right on. Thanks!

I know a few pregnant women right now that would enjoy this book, but I would most want to give it to my sister-in-law. She is skeptical of breastfeeding and attachment parenting, though she always compliments my daughter.

I think that if she could see an MD giving some of the same advice I've tried to impart, it would help make the case for the type of parenting that I believe is best for children.

If this counts for your giveaway, I'd love a copy for my lending library, because I am always lending out my favorite books to friends. This would be a great one to give to several women I know who are late in their pregnancies!

I'm interested in seeing the book because I am always interested in mindful parent.

Responding to your message on my blog, yes, I've written a bit about my son's dyslexia, but I'm horrible about using the tags. I'll try to locate some of my posts for you.

I am done taking entries. Tomorrow is a busy day. I will announce the winner very late or on Saturday. Thanks for your interest!! I appreciate all your comments.

Oh darn I missed out! That's okay I probably would have given ME the book for mother's day since I really want to read it!
