Mother Food: A Breastfeeding Diet Guide with Lactogenic Foods and Herbs

It's been over a decade since I've nursed and this topic is slightly on the edge of my writing and consulting areas so why did I buy the book? I ran across the title accidentally and guess I was mostly interested in how someone could write a whole text about fenugreek, a few other herbs, and a couple of drugs. Maybe I just wanted to see if the book was just silliness. Well, zowie, even if you've been consulting in lactation for many years and read "all" the books, there's a multitude of interesting and juicy bits in this book (and there's a lot more than "a few other herbs"). Hilary Jacobson covers a wide array of pertinent topics, with an excellent understanding of the current spectrum of maternal, lactation professional, and science knowledge (each of which often seem to have large gaps between them), and adds lots of insightful and fun historic and anthropologic information along the way. 

She's raised my own consciousness in my own favorite directions: just how intimately and distinctly our food choices affect us. 

Something to bring to the beach for pleasure reading if you have ANY interest in infant feeding; really. A must-read for lactation professionals, and for breastfeeding mothers with any challenges at all. My dream to see pediatricians read.
