An Introduction to Biological Nurturing describes new research evidence suggesting that mothers and babies innately know how to breastfeed, and introduces a new approach called biological nurturing. Biological nurturing is a collective term for optimal breastfeeding states and positions whose interaction release spontaneous behaviours helping mothers and babies get started with feeding.
Biological nurturing is quick and easy to do. Most mothers and babies automatically move into the correct positions if left on their own. The challenge for health professionals lies with understanding the releasing mechanisms and learning how to help mothers and babies do what comes naturally. This book restores confidence in nature’s biological design and in mothers’ innate capacity to breastfeed.
Colson’s mentor, French obstetrician Michel Odent, changed the way we think about birth. In this book, Suzanne Colson does the same for breastfeeding. Get ready to rethink – like I did – many of your most basic breastfeeding assumptions and learn some revolutionary new ways to help mothers and babies. This book will change your life!
