Banyen's Description: 

Drawing on her decades of experience in caring for pregnant women, mothers, and babies, Ina May Gaskin explores the health and psychological benefits of breastfeeding. Filled with practical advice that will help new mothers nurse their babies in the most fulfilling way—and inspiring as well as informative—her book shows women that by trusting and connecting with their bodies—which are built with the natural ability to feed and nourish babies—they can experience the joys of breastfeeding without fear, inhibition, or embarrassment.  She answers virtually every question on breastfeeding, including topics such as the benefits of breastfeeding, nursing challenges, pumps and other nursing products, sleeping arrangements, nursing and work, medications, nursing multiples, weaning, sick babies, nipplephobia, and much more.

Written by a mother and midwife who has, with her partners, ushered thousands of babies into the world and watched many of them grow, Ina May’s Guide to Breastfeeding is filled with helpful advice, medical facts, and real-life stories that will help mothers understand how and why breastfeeding works and how they can use it to more deeply connect with their children and their own bodies.

We women are all born with the right equipment for breastfeeding…  Breasts are amazing, complex organs, which are able to produce, secrete, and deliver the most perfect food possible to your baby, who is hardwired to take it in. Your breasts are even talented enough to adjust the composition of your milk according to the gestational age of your baby at birth and to the amount of heat and humidity in your environment at any given moment.

Warm, wise, solidly based in real experiences, and sensitive to the needs and lives of women in all their complexity, this is the only breastfeeding book you’ll need.

Ina May Gaskin, certified professional midwife, has practiced for more than thirty years at The Farm Midwifery Center in Summertown, Tennessee. Her other great books are Spiritual Midwifery and Ina May’s Guide to Childbirth.
