Published Reviews

    "This is a text which will no doubt be accessed principally by midwives and neonatal nurses, but the successful establishment and maintenance of breastfeeding is far more likely to prosper when all health care providers are singing from the same hymn sheet, and I would strongly commend that it is read by all those who involved in the process including paediatricians, health visitors, GP s and paediatric nurses and others."
