“Like having a wise and loving grandmother show you exactly how to nurse your baby”

The title quote is from Dr. Christiane Northrup about the book Breastfeeding with Comfort and Joy: A Photographic Guide for Mom and Those who Help Her. The author is Laura Keegan, mother of four and Family Nurse Practitioner.

She says, “My mission is to bring breastfeeding back to humanity with a new comfort zone to promote both peace and health.”

Breastfeeding with Comfort and Joy is not only extremely practical with a long history of successful use in its pre-published form since 1999, being circulated by patients and colleagues to women all over the US having significant breastfeeding problems; it is also beautiful.  The images of breastfeeding mothers and babies have been described as stunning and evocative.

This sounds like a wonderful gift to give a woman who is currently pregnant or has just given birth and may or may not have a circle of breastfeeding friends to help her should she need it.
