“This book is a wonderful resource for clinicians of all skill levels. It would be an excellent resource for students and clinicians learning lactation for the first time and for clinicians preparing for certification or recertification in lactation. The book would also be an excellent resource for clinicians experienced in lactation, because it includes some of the most recent research and clinical innovations.” Engstrom JL: The Breastfeeding Atlas.
