This is a US DVD made with Suzanne Colson, who made the original UK Biological Nurturing DVD. The DVDs are unique but cover similar content.
The DVD introduces laid-back positions that can help mothers breastfeed in greater comfort rather than in upright positions which can be uncomfortable for some mothers and ineffective for some babies. The narration explains how mothers that are comfortably seated can easily interact with their babies to gently encourage them to attach and feed, and how skin to skin contact facilitates breastfeeding.
The DVD shows ethnically diverse mothers and babies in a variety of settings: a delivery room, a postpartum hospital room after a cesarean birth, at home in bed, on a couch, in different chairs, and in an outdoor café. The segments with a post-caesarean mother and a mother whose baby had been in NICU are particularly useful, showing some babies require more attempts to self-attach.
Particularly suited for mothers, and useful for lactation consultants, nurses, midwives, childbirth educators, and others who work with breastfeeding mothers. Ideal for a waiting room or lending library.
USA. 2011. DVD 28 mins. Universal format DVD.
