    Posted by Katie Hennessy on Jun 29, 2017 3:00:50 PM

    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."

    She continues that,

    "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.
