Editorial Reviews

From The Critics
Reviewer:Robin Webb Corbett, PhD, RN,C(East Carolina University)
Description:This book is written for nurse midwives to provide consistency, evidenced-based practice, and accurate information for counseling breastfeeding patients.
Purpose:The authors suggest that this book, although written for nurse midwives, is also appropriate for others providing breastfeeding advice and support.
Audience:This book is appropriate for nurse midwives and others providing breastfeeding counseling in the U.K. The Royal College of Midwives is a credible authority in the area of maternal health.
Features:Unique features of this book include its identification of those factors which help or hinder breastfeeding, treatment of breastfeeding under special circumstances, information on research-based practice, incorporation of World Health Organization goals, and an appendix with resources for further information. In addition, the book presents illustrations that address research findings, an area which could be expanded. The illustrations, though limited, demonstrate breastfeeding physiology and care of women with complications. Recommendations for improvement include bulleting of important material in boxes, expansion of hormonal and ovulation information, the inclusion of dietary information and drug therapy during lactation, and expansion and updating of references. A detailed index helps find information.
Assessment:This book is concise and succinct, though some information contrasts with breastfeeding tenets in the United States. For nurse midwives and others providing breastfeeding counseling and desiring a book groundedin the U.K. nurse midwifery tradition, this book will meet their educational needs. Those looking for a strong reference book in breastfeeding physiology, care, and complications, will find this book more limited. This book does provide a unique perspective on breastfeeding counseling and support in the U.K.
