Description

A Celebration of Breastfeeding is a book that celebrates the beauty and challenges of breastfeeding around the world. An illustrated book to inspire, inform, educate, entertain, support and soothe young mothers-to-be, their partners and family and friends. It is also useful for associated health workers, grandmothers and other care givers.

Offering practical advice on what to expect, as well as any difficulties that may arise and how to overcome them, this book also encourages support by partners, families, healthcare workers, communities and workplaces. Support is such an important factor for a mother and baby, both psychologically and physically, into the transition of motherhood as well as after, as illustrated by the author.

Utilising current information that is in line with UNICEF/WHO recommendations on baby friendly nursing, A Celebration of Breastfeeding compares cultural ideas on what to eat/drink and what to avoid, while exploring myths, legends and superstitions, plenty of which exist to this day. Whether you’re a new mother, a young mother or a mother-to-be, if you’re tired and anxious, if you’re excited and looking for information, be ready to have your eyes opened by different perspectives from all corners of the earth. The ideal book for any of the above or any partner or family member ready to celebrate the beautiful journey that is breastfeeding.

Featured Reviews

I think "A Celebration of Breastfeeding" by Ruth I Rusby, PhD is just that a celebration. I received my IBCLC,RLC in 1997. Since that time only a hand full of multi cultural books about breastfeeding are in publication. I myself have been blessed to teach hundreds of women from all over the globe how to breastfeed, so I especially enjoyed reading this book. I would recommend pregnant women and their support persons to read this book. It is best read at leisure, before or during pregnancy, but not as a "what do I do" after the baby is born. Some of the latch photos/drawings aren't the best examples. However I really like the warm and positive breastfeeding photos and support information. Overall I really like this book. I would love for millions to read it!
