“Overall, the book is an excellent guide for any person working with nursing mothers, and I would highly recommend it to be available in every maternity ward in hospitals, in breastfeeding support groups, as well as being a required text for any breastfeeding peer counselor.”
Judith Lauwers's Quick Reference for the Lactation Professional, Second Edition has received another rave review. Mechell R. Turner, MEd, CCH, CD, writes in Clinical Lactation that the portable size makes it easy to "fit into a large lab coat pocket [and it is] useful for a busy practitioner."

"The book comes in handy for dealing with difficult and advanced issues that require an interdisciplinary team effort. One chapter is dedicated to “Techniques and Devices.” Each product and technique is simply explained in a step by step process that shows best practice as well as those practices and devices that are ineffectual. There is a lot of common sense in the text.
In a new review of Marsha Walker's Breastfeeding Management for the Clinician: Using the Evidence, Fourth Edition for Clinical Lactation, Heather D. Leopold, RN, LMT, writes that,
“In a world where mothers are often pitted against each other, lactation is particularly contentious as breastfeeding experts, who may or may not be medical professionals, are steadily challenged about the validity of the information they present. We are often called names and told we should stop being so dogmatic. Many times, lactation specialists may not be able to put their finger on specific information they know to be true and instead scramble to find resources.
