Editorial Reviews

Robin Webb-Corbett
This book on breastfeeding and human lactation has a strong clinical focus supported with research that is reader friendly with numerous resources. The second edition has been strengthened with the inclusion of clinical implications sections in most chapters, expansion of the content in the breastfeeding process secondary to research, and increased numbers of color photographs. It focuses on clinical practice undergirded with research, and is an excellent resource for experienced lactation consultants and those professionals seeking lactation knowledge. It purports in a single resource to address clinical techniques, research roles, and the varied roles of the lactation consultant. According to the authors, it is written for lactation consultants and those health professionals promoting breastfeeding. It is an excellent resource for both populations. The authors are well known in the lactation arena. This book includes the historical and sociocultural context of lactation, the basic anatomic and biologic constructs, the breastfeeding process in the prenatal, perinatal, and postnatal periods, maternal and infant health continuum issues specific to lactation, and the field of lactation consulting. Unique features include numerous color photographs, inclusion of clinical implications for most chapters, strong research linkage to clinical practice, and extensive references. This is an excellent resource for lactation consultants and professionals. Particular strengths are found in the emphasis on clinical practice secondary to research findings. Extensive content is presented in a manner facilitating its use for the lactation consultant. I highly recommend this text.

    Excellent resource for the lactation consultant

    This book is an excellent resource for the lactation consultant or someone wishing to gain more information on the subject of lactation. It seems to be geared towards nurses, is not oververly technical, yet is very comprehensive.

    I have the previous edition and was able to see many of the updates in this new edition. However, with some subjects, revisions seem to have been overlooked. A person new to lactation would probably not even notice.

    Overall, this is still my favorite resource for lactation.
