Format: Spiral-bound
The Atlas proves to be what it says on the cover. It is page specific and answers the points clearly with illustrations. I also like that it lies flat so women can use it while they try the suggestions. I recommend it for health care professionals who support women so that they can have instant access to solutions that they may not have considered. I also know that any woman would benefit from the Atlas in terms of learning from school age about breastfeeding as an Aa Ha (we are not culturally specific breat-feeders); as well as gaining on the job instant information.

This is a very useful text for all midwifery students and indeed allied professionals. It is well organised and its pictorial section is particularly useful.

This is an essential text for anyone either teaching or supporting breastfeeding in practice.
It is crammed full of interesting information and numerous photographs which are useful for showing to mothers. Specific sections of the book deal with breastfeeding difficulties and "tonge-tie" for example is thoroughly explained.

Excellent Resource for Women Helping Women 28 Jan 2014
By Kris - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Spiral-bound Verified Purchase
This is the third edition of the Breastfeeding Atlas that I have purchased. As a new Lactation Consultant, I found it very helpful in preparing for my IBCLC Exam. The pictures and descriptions make it very helpful to learn the issues breastfeeding women can face, and how to help them manage the issues. The expression, "A picture is worth a thousand words" applies to how useful this resource is. Some are pictures we see often; others are less frequent occurrences but it is good to know that I have seen it before in, "The Atlas". I remember many times when I saw a situation in real life for the first time, I was confident in helping the mom because I had seen it before in this book. The text is very helpful, too, and many of the descriptions and recommendations have helped me tremendously in my practice. The reason why I have purchased three editions is because our field is always being updated with new information, and the new editions help keep me up to date, and prepare for not only for the next exam, but for the next mom who asks for my help.
This book would be very useful for staff at OB or Pediatrics offices or clinics, or anywhere that helps women who are breastfeeding or wish to learn more about it. In particular, midwives, doulas, physicians, LeLeche Leaders, and Lactation Consultants.
