In emotional book launch party, former patient and award-winning OB-GYN recount tale of initial visit, planning, and delivery of four babies

ELGIN, ND, October 25, 2023 /24-7PressRelease/ — Sandy Powell was told by multiple obstetricians that the number of babies she was carrying needed to be reduced from four to two, or she would risk losing them all. However, that choice didn’t sit right with her. When she finally met “Rural Doc” Alan Lindemann, M.D., the award-winning obstetrician and maternal health expert, she knew she had found the right OB-GYN for her.

During an emotional virtual book launch party on Sept.18, Dr. Lindemann read Sandy’s story from Chapter One of his new book “Pregnancy Your Way: Choose a Safe and Happy Birth,” with Sandy — along with three of the four now-grown quadruplets in attendance — recounting and reflecting upon the story with the live audience. She later posted a loving tribute to the evening and the man, as well as a recommendation for Dr. Lindemann’s new book:

“I had an unbelievable experience last evening attending a book launch party for Dr. Lindemann, who delivered the kids! He read from his book — and it was about us! It was so emotional to see him and hear him recall those details! I always knew he would remember the quads he delivered, but he even remembered the conversations and moments of discussion from our first visit. It warms my heart and shows how truly unbelievable he is! He was most definitely put on this earth to care for people — specifically, mothers. He tailored my care to fit me, as we both knew I would probably not carry to the time frame when specific tests were done. He got creative, which is the reason my babies survived! Had he not made those decisions, we could have had a very different outcome. Please check out this book; he has amazing knowledge, and you will read about some people you know! I am ordering a copy for myself and each of the kids!”
— Sandy Powell

Dr. Lindemann’s second book, “Pregnancy Your Way: Choose a Safe and Happy Birth” is an all-encompassing and empowering guide to pregnancy instilled with information garnered from his 40 years of practice delivering 6,000 babies.

Written to empower, encourage, and educate women to take charge of their own pregnancies, “Pregnancy Your Way” was released Aug. 9, is available for purchase at and, and has been recommended by “Chicken Soup for the Soul” author and star of “The Secret” Jack Canfield:

CONGRATULATIONS! You are about to embark on a journey that is both intensely personal and yet connects you to all mothers since time immemorial. Bringing a child into the world is a life-changing experience, and this book will help you to have a safe and happy pregnancy and postpartum year.

No one goes into a pregnancy thinking they are going to have problems, but sometimes you’re suddenly faced with unexpected issues and decisions which you feel unprepared to make. The information in this book helps you understand your choices so you can work with your obstetrician to have the kind of pregnancy you want for yourself.

After delivering 6,000 babies with no maternal mortalities, I want to share what I have learned with women and their families. I developed my methods by listening to my patients and learned that while there are universal traits to pregnancy and childbirth, each experience is as unique as the woman having it. In this book, I share with you my perspective on how you can make choices which can increase your safety and happiness in your own pregnancy.

I show you how to create your own unique “Flight Plan” with personalized prenatal, birth, and postpartum information. With this “Flight Plan,” you will have the information you need to participate with your doctor in making the best choices for your pregnancy, your birth, and the first year of your baby’s life.

You are in charge of your safe pregnancy. Let’s make sure it’s the best experience it can be.
