Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: JoAnne Flagg, BSN,MS, PNP (Johns Hopkins University School of Nursing)
Description: This book presents evidence-based guidelines for the IBCLC or healthcare professional providing care to women who are breastfeeding. This guide includes easy to follow chapters and complete references.
Purpose: The goal is to provide current and relevant information on breastfeeding and lactation to healthcare providers. Clinical suggestions for best outcomes are provided. The book is needed for practitioners to stay current in clinical practice.
Audience: It is written for clinicians in practice who are providing care to women who are breastfeeding. A basic understanding of the breastfeeding process is necessary to gain the most use out of this book, although this could be used as an adjunct for students in the field of women's healthcare. The author is an IBCLC who has written core curriculum for the lactation consultant course.
Features: The book is divided into several parts that cover the context of lactation, infant challenges, and maternal challenges. Social, emotional, physical, and environmental challenges are also addressed. Each part contains pertinent and complete details of related problems and issues. The use of scales and tables as an objective way to identify problems is well presented. Studies and detailed references are provided for each problem addressed. There are no illustrations.
Assessment: This will be useful for busy clinicians as a resource to identify best practices when providing counseling for women who are breastfeeding. The references are extensive. The book provides guidance in developing standards and protocols for breastfeeding issues, especially in the hospital setting. Those individuals studying for certification as lactation consults would find the information beneficial in practice and for increasing their knowledge base.
