The Breastfeeding Atlas is a comprehensive visual resource that is invaluable for those sitting the International Board of Lactation Consultant Examiners (IBLCE) exam, and lactation consultants and other health professionals working with breastfeeding women. The authors have encountered thousands of babies and here, their stories are told as case studies with 400+ colour photographs and suggested clinical solutions. Carefully referenced, the book has space after most chapters for note-taking.
The revised edition contains new photos, new case studies and evidence-based breastfeeding management information.
This book is a wonderful resource for clinicians of all skill levels. It would be an excellent resource for students and clinicians learning lactation for the first time and for clinicians preparing for certification or recertification in lactation. The book would also be an excellent resource for clinicians experienced in lactation, because it includes some of the most recent research and clinical innovations.
