Product Overview


Breastfeeding mothers need to receive support from their communities. Unfortunately, many mothers fall through the cracks and do not receive the care they need. What are the barriers to care? How can communities help the breastfeeding mother? What do care providers need to know?


Promoting Breastfeeding: Community Settings is a compilation of recent articles that provide vital information to address these issues. These articles address support on college campuses and in the workplace, in rural settings and in clinics. Promoting Breastfeeding: Community Settings also addresses health insurance coverage for breastfeeding support and barriers to breastfeeding care. If you work with mothers in your community, these articles will help you provide the support that they need.
