Mapped to the UNICEF Baby Friendly Learning Outcomes, this new edition of Pollard's essential textbook ensures readers are equipped with the essential knowledge and skills to eff ectively promote and support breastfeeding mothers.

Breastfeeding is a major public health issue. Not only does breastmilk provide all the nutrients a baby needs for their fi rst six months, but research shows it also helps to protect infants from infection and reduce obesity, as well as helping to protect mothers from some diseases in later life. Although many women want to breastfeed, rates drop rapidly in the fi rst days and weeks after giving birth. Women need the support of their midwives and health visitors when establishing breastfeeding and throughout their children's infancy. This comprehensive and accessible text covers:

anatomy and physiology

building relationships

essential skills and good practice guidance

dealing with common problems

public health considerations

mothers needing additional support

babies with special needs; and

complementary feeding and weaning.

Suitable for midwifery and nursing students, as well as practitioners undertaking continuing professional development, Evidence-based Care for Breastfeeding Mothers is designed to aid learning. Each chapter begins with specific learning outcomes linked to the Baby Friendly Learning Outcomes, key fact boxes, clinical scenarios and activities.
