Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Robin Webb Corbett, PhD, RN C(East Carolina University)
Description: This practical, how-to book on breastfeeding presents clinical interventions and the evidence to support them.
Purpose: It is intended to provide current and relevant information on lactation with clinical suggestions. Evidence-based practice provides the framework for the clinical interventions.
Audience: This is an informative resource for busy clinicians working with breastfeeding families in the hospital and at home. The author is the executive director for the National Alliance for Breastfeeding Advocacy Board of Directors and is well known for her work in the area of lactation.
Features: This book covers the maternal anatomy and physiology of lactation, the influence of the infant's anatomy and physiology on breastfeeding, and the biospecificity of breast milk. Other topics include the challenges of the initial 24 to 48 hours following birth as well as later, and other issues influencing the breastfeeding maternal-infant dyad. The book also discusses infants with anomalies or physical conditions that may affect breastfeeding, the physically challenged mother, and common problems. Strengths of this book include the approach to the challenge, the clinical intervention, and the evidence supporting that intervention. Additional illustrations would enhance the presentation.
Assessment: This is an excellent resource for healthcare providers who want to provide evidence-based clinical interventions for the lactating family in the hospital and the community. Tools such as Latch Assessment Documentation and Breastfeeding Assessment, along with other breastfeeding tools, are valuable instruments to strengthen and individualize care of these families.
