Breastfeeding is a major public health issue. Breast milk provides
all the nutrients a baby needs for their first six months. Research
studies also show that breastfeeding doesn't just help to protect
infants from infection, but has other benefits such as reducing
obesity and can help protect mothers from some diseases in later
life. Breastfeeding rates are low, however, and women need the
support of their midwives and health visitors when beginning
breastfeeding and throughout their child's infancy. Based on the
UNICEF UK BFI Best Practice Standards for Higher Education
Institutions, this accessible textbook addresses all 18 outcomes to
ensure that students are equipped with the essential knowledge and
skills to effectively promote and support breastfeeding mothers,
including: anatomy and physiology; essential skills and good
practice guidance; dealing with common problems; public health
considerations; babies and mothers with special needs;
complementary feeding. Suitable for both undergraduate students and
practitioners undertaking continuing professional development,
Evidence-based Care for Breastfeeding Mothers is designed to aid
learning. Each chapter includes specific learning outcomes linked
to the Baby Friendly standards, key fact boxes, clinical scenarios
