Product Description

When new mothers gets depressed, health care providers are often quick to suggest that they stop breastfeeding. This advice is often contrary to what mothers want to do and these mothers may experience weaning as another significant loss. The truth is that stopping breastfeeding is often completely unnecessary. Mothers can continue to breastfeed while recovering from depression. In fact, recent studies have shown that breastfeeding can aid in their recovery.


A Breastfeeding-Friendly Approach to Postpartum Depression is the first volume that specifically supports the depressed, breastfeeding mother. Written in an accessible, easy-to-read format, A Breastfeeding-Friendly Approach to Postpartum Depression combines recent scientific research with practical suggestions to help health care providers assist in women’s recovery from depression while honoring and supporting the breastfeeding relationship. Video links and assessment tools are also included. If you want to support breastfeeding mothers, this volume is a must for your library.
