The LLLGB shop says: "In this compact but comprehensive book Wendy Jones gives breastfeeding mothers and those treating them the information they need to make considered decisions about medications. Why Mothers’ Medications Matter provides practical, reassuring information on a wide range of medical conditions and medications, empowering breastfeeding mothers and their supporters to make informed decisions about appropriate care." (It is also relevant to pregnant mothers)
Our members say: "If your first breastfeeding experience did not go the way you had hoped, this is an amazingly kind book to help you understand in a rational way the issues that were encountered and more importantly overcome any personal guilt about the original outcome not being the one you'd hoped for. This enables a fresh start next time round with the benefit of the original experience guiding your decisions with your new baby. "
