Praise for Susan Fekety's Writing

"There is nothing else out there like this for women . . . [The Pocket Midwife] is something that I want to give to all of my clients to counter all the other messages they hear during their pregnancies. It's absolutely wonderful." (Angela, Certified Nurse-Midwife)

" . . . The perfect gift for baby showers, and women who've just conceived." (The Blessed Bee newsletter,

" . . . a spiral-bound bundle of 70 positive thoughts to keep you inspired and centered in pregnancy and labor. Repeat after me: 'I treat myself like a goddess.'" (Mothering magazine,

"I found The Pocket Midwife in a local store and have begun sending it to my pregnant friends. I've given away 4 or 5 in the past year as gifts and my friends LOVE them! It gets high marks from people in the know." (Chris, mother of two)

"For further ideas about using affirmations, I recommend The Pocket Midwife by my friend and nurse-midwife colleague Susan Fekety, CNM. This spiral-bound book is small and will stand up by itself, making it easy to do your affirmations while you cook, brush your hair, or go about your day." (Christiane Northrup MD, bestselling author and women's health visionary)

The Pocket Midwife is described in Gentle Birth Choices (2nd edition, by Barbara Harper, RN), a classic in the field of prepared childbirth and a Lamaze International "Top 10 Recommended Book" for 2006.

"Susan Fekety has the gift of making the women she cares for feel treasured. Through this book of affirmations, it's possible to take a little bit of Susan's energy, enthusiasm and encouragement along with you on the magical journey toward birthing your baby!"

"If you are pregnant, know someone who is pregnant, or have ever been pregnant, The Pocket Midwife is for you. Now everyone can be cared for by a midwife!"

"For uplifting and positive affirmations during pregnancy, The Pocket Midwife is the ultimate partner!"

"The Pocket Midwife is like a book of quotations from the intelligent pregnant woman's wise inner goddess. Just the literary quiver of arrows a pregnant woman needs to counter the negativistic nay-saying of our often overly-technologized American birth culture! When every pregnant woman embraces as truth the beautifully self-empowering messages in The Pocket Midwife, childbirth in America will be revolutionized. Our culture will respect women and revere their power to give birth naturally. No longer will labor and birth be treated as a crisis to be 'managed.' The Cesarean section rate will plummet!"

"I wish I'd had this when I was pregnant! It was such a powerful experience; it would have been so perfect to have a reminder to be in the moment, to trust the process, to remember how beautiful it can be! I would have loved to have somebody offer words of wisdom when so much was changing and unknown. It would have really nurtured my own sense of power. These affirmations will really help you stay clear and true!"

"This handy book of affirmations will ease the way to a positive and joyful birth experience for the women who use it. I will gladly recommend The Pocket Midwife to every pregnant woman I know!"
