About the Author

Kathleen Huggins, a registered nurse and board-certified lactation consultant, directed the breastfeeding clinic at San Luis Obispo General Hospital for more than twenty years. During that time she became a central figure in the evolution of the field of professional lactation consultants, who now are found in any hospital of significant size that has a birthing center. She has authored or co-authored six books, including The Nursing Mother's Guide to Weaning; Nursing Mother, Working Mother; and The Expectant Parents' Companion, all published by the Harvard Common Press. She currently owns Simply MaMa, a maternity and nursing boutique in San Luis Obispo. She lives in San Luis Obispo with her husband and youngest child.
