From the Author

I have been involved with the education and support of breastfeeding mothers for the past 20 years. As a midwife, this has been just one part of a very rewarding career. As a mother, having breastfed my own children for a combined total of 7 years, it has become a lot more.
I am not saying that you have to experience breastfeeding in order to teach others, but it definitely helps. Most of the trials and tribulations that so many women suffer, on their road to successful breastfeeding, have also happened to me. This is why I understand the highs and lows so well and can hopefully guide you through. I also understand that ‘real life’ does not include a nanny or constant support from friends and relatives. Real life means juggling work, home, other children, partners and it’s exhausting!
So how can something that appears to take up so much time really fit into a busy mothers life? This is what I want to de-mystify. Once you have established breastfeeding, there is no better stress-buster around! The natural ‘high’ that occurs with every feed is available on tap whenever you and your baby need it. More importantly it is free and should be enjoyed by all. So many women have told me that they regret having not persevered with breastfeeding and that they wished my tips had been around when they needed them. This is why I am determined to spread the word about the pleasurable side of feeding that is so often overlooked. Not only is it best for your baby, but it is best for you too!
In 2002 I wrote down my experiences, as a way of introducing breastfeeding to women, in an easy-to-read format, combined with all the ’tricks of the trade’, so to speak! It is evidence-based and would be an ideal introduction to parents, student midwives, midwives and returning midwives.
Sharon Trotter October 2004
