The Breastfeeding Atlas 7th edition has new photos and has been substantially re-written to reflect the most current research and best, evidence-based clinical practices. It also reflects the practical experience of Barbara Wilson-Clay, and Kay Hoover, both Fellows of the International Lactation Consultant Association, who have each been assisting mothers and babies for more than 30 years. A must-have text for students, candidates for the IBLCE (International Board of Lactation Consultant Examiners) exam, and practitioners working in maternal-child health fields. Spiral binding permits the book to open flat for easy study.
“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 who have experience in lactation because it includes some of the most recent research and clinical innovations.” Engstrom JL: The Breastfeeding Atlas. Journal of Midwifery & Women’s Health
