Helping Mothers to Breastfeed - Revised editionISBN: 9966-874-04-6
R Savage King


This book summarises information about breastfeeding and gives practical guidance on how to prevent problems and help mothers who have problems. The part that breastfeeding can play to enable a woman to control her own fertility has become clearer. But many women and many health workers are confused about whether breastfeeding does or does not protect mothers against a new pregnancy, and about how reliable such protection can be. This revised edition provides accurate information on this subject so that women can choose how to space their children and can use this chosen method effectively. This book will also assist in improving the training of health workers in the art of helping mothers to breastfeed.
