Top positive review
with all its subsequent feelings of disappointment and even guilt
on 5 May 2018
I bought this as a present for a new mother, having been a fan of Ina May Gaskin for some thirty years. The path to breastfeeding successfully can be a tricky one to negotiate and with so much else going on in a new mother's life, it can be simpler to just give up and start bottle feeding, with all its subsequent feelings of disappointment and even guilt. Ina May deals with all the issues with a fierce practicality and deep sensitivity. Lots of other people's experiences included too. Highly recommend this for all new mums.
