    Quick Reference for the Lactation Professional, Second EditionHave you been looking for a current, trusted, and accessible resource for working with breastfeeding women and their families? We just published Quick Reference for the Lactation Professional, Second Edition by Judith Lauwers.

    An invaluable tool for clinicians, educators, students, and interns, each chapter includes clinical management strategies, key clinical competencies, and tutorials that test comprehension and clinical application with short answer questions and counselling scenarios.

    According to the World Health Organization,

    "Globally, less than 40% of infants under six months of age are exclusively breastfed. Adequate breastfeeding counselling and support are essential for mothers and families to initiate and maintain optimal breastfeeding practices."

    Completely updated and revised, the Second Edition incorporates inclusive language throughout to provide an equal and diverse approach to assisting breastfeeding families.
