Foreword by Kerstin Uvnas-Moberg

Most health professionals believe mothers need to be taught how to breastfeed. This book 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 behaviors helping mothers and babies get started with feeding. Biological nurturing is quick and easy to do. 

Keeping the baby at the right address and maternal body support are the priorities. These variables optimize comfortable baby gazing and eye-to-eye contact. These are the things that get the breastfeeding hormones flowing.  We know that just looking at the baby increases oxytocin pulsatility.   The challenge for health professionals lies with understanding reflex releasing mechanisms and learning how not to disturb the nursing couple.  This book restores confidence in nature's biological design and in mothers' innate capacity to breastfeed.



"Dr. Suzanne Colson is one of my heroes because her thoughtful and careful research and the conclusions she has drawn from this research have finally brought common sense into the discussion of breastfeeding." 

-Ina May Gaskin, CNM, Ph.D., Author, Spiritual Midwifery and Ina May's Guide to Breastfeeding



"Suzanne Colson is a brilliant observer, and she has seen how current breastfeeding regimens make it very difficult for women to breastfeed. Professionals’ recommendations, both outside and inside hospitals, actually act against biology and the laws of nature and therefore counteract spontaneous breastfeeding. This is why she has created a new manual for breastfeeding that she calls biological nurturing."

-Kerstin Uvnas-Moberg
