My archives might be a little outdated especially the older blogs.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

And Even More Inspirational Reviews

From One Jewish Mama to Another, March 12, 2011

By Liz P-L -
This book is amazing--I wish I read it when I was pregnant so I could have avoided heartache and doubt BEFORE my little one was born. Dr. Punger's journey from doctor to mom and then to her amazing blended life is inspiring. As a Jewish mom that questions conventional wisdom regarding birth and the early years, I especially appreciated Dr. Punger's candidness about her experiences as a young mom and her spirituality. The letter to her boys (included in the book) about their Jewish names is beautiful. There are not many resources out there for Jewish moms that need "Permission to Mother" so this was an extra special message for me. There are not a lot of heroes in this world like Dr. Punger that have the courage to speak the truth of what it means to be a woman and mother from a thoughtful, emotional, physical, and spiritual perspective. I will refer back to this book as I raise my daughter when I need to remember that we indeed have the right to raise our children in ways that align with our core beliefs. I also appreciate her example of blending her career with motherhood and perhaps find that aspect of the book most inspiring.


She was 'lively', April 28, 2011

By Channah
The book was excellent! Once I opened it, I couldn't put it down. I was intrigued as to how this doctor had the nerve to use the services of a doula, at the hospital; and then, go on to have a footling breech birth at home. As I read each chapter, I was convinced that her experiences were for the many women who will read her book, and receive the answers they need. The most inspiring section of this book is, most certainly, the manner in which she prepared to deliver her last child. She so eloquently describes how she focused on the tetragrammaton, the sacred name of God, putting her trust in HIM; and He not only heard her; but, strengthened her to persevere such an obstacle of great proportions and triumph dramatically.

Indeed, she was `lively'. This is the word used in Exodus 1:19 to describe the Hebrew woman who delivered their children without the assistance of a midwife, in order to save them from Pharaoh. Let it be known, however, that I wouldn't of known this had Dr. Punger not interpreted this Scripture in her book, Permission to Mother. It is a MUST READ!
