Lactation: A Foundational Strategy for Health PromotionAuthor: Suzanne Hetzel Campbell
A core function of lactation consultants and public health officials is to educate the community on breastfeeding as an important health issue. Currently the market lacks the resources to support this knowledge and need. Until now. Lactation: A Foundational Strategy for Health Promotion presents evidence-based research for these professionals to promote healthy breastfeeding and lactation while showing respect and support for new parents in this venture.
This unique resource takes a social-ecological perspective and uses a person-centred care framework to reflect lactation as a foundational health promotion strategy. It focuses on strategies, theory, interventions, and service delivery models, to make the case for lactation as foundational to global health. It includes international examples and practical means for practitioners to incorporate culturally sensitive holistic care within a therapeutic relational practice model.
