"Plantfed Mama is an incredible example of the amazing power of mothers helping mothers. When I was pregnant, I turned to sisters, experienced mother friends, and books that helped me with middle-of-the-night mystery rashes, questionable fevers, and nursing dilemmas. We’re connected as mothers and daughters, in this extraordinary group of fierce, vulnerable women, or mother bears. And now with Candy’s help, we can support ourselves and the ripe, gorgeous Plantfed Mamas in our lives. I can’t wait to give this book out to every new mom I know, now, and in the years to come." - Suzy Amis Cameron
