Praise for Bearing Witness

Hello All!

A brilliant Toronto artist, Catherine Tammaro has designed a beautiful piece of artwork for the book cover inspired by a contributor's placenta print. See more of Catherine's work at

We also wanted to share the wonderful words of praise we have been receiving from professionals in the birth world. Some of the following quotes were sent off to the U.S. book sales reps for the spring sales catalogue meeting in New York City this week: (see June 1, 2010 post "It’s here!")

All the best, Lisa C & Lisa D


  1. Thank Lisa and Lisa for your every moment of effort, every thought and intention to bring this book in being. It will be exciting beyond belief to see these comments above included on jacket covers and in reviews ... and then to have our contributions read and experienced from that context. This is so meaningful. Thank you from the bottom of my heart on behalf of every woman who has birthed and given us, the doulas, the privilege of bearing witness.

  2. Awesome!!!! Can't wait to see it in its entirety!

  3. So amazing!!! I can't wait. You two are awesome for putting this together!! xo

  4. Love it, I'm so excited to read this book. And Kudos to Lisa and Lisa in getting those amazing comments from some of the most amazing birth leaders of our time.

    March is a good time for this book to come out. It will make a good birthday present for me.

  5. Congratulation ladies. Can't wait for the final product. Leigh
