Int'l Doula Month - Giveaway #15

Laura Keegan wrote a delightful breastfeeding book called Breastfeeding with Comfort and Joy.

This delightful book is a photographic guide to help women feel confident and prepared for nursing.

the review by Robert Schiller, MD with the excerpt from the forward of the book was my favorite. I think pictures are a must when teaching breastfeeding. It is such a hands on learning experience but the more visual aids the better. This book looks like it is a must have. "EB entry"

I liked Mary P. Anderson's review. While I'm an experienced breastfeeder, I worry about breastfeeding with my next one. My first one had hardly any problems and I don't know what I'd do if this one gave me a curve ball!

Definitely Robert Schiller's review for me! After reading his review, I feel as if I've flipped through it quickly at a bookstore. I know I want it now.

Loved how Robert Schiller pointed out that this is not just for mother but also for "her family and friends who want to help her, and her practitioners." Breastfeeding mamas need support from those around her - I love the idea of those important support people reading this book so they can be as helpful as possible. It takes a village!

Patti Ranieri because it shows that it helped a mom who was experiencing challenges.

Its always good to see a review from a mom who raves about how much the book transformed her breastfeeding experience. All those reviews on the site are my favorite!

This review, by AN MD!!!, was fantastic:

“Working with Laura Keegan in my busy pediatric practice for the past 15 years, I have had the opportunity to witness firsthand her excellence as a clinician and her caring compassionate heart. I have been referring mothers to her for breastfeeding consultation and have witnessed literally hundreds of children benefiting from her wisdom. Her ability to simplify and communicate what is all too often over-complicated in our culture is reflected in the long-lasting relationships she develops with her patients. I am so pleased that this is reflected in the pages of this book and look forward to recommending it to new mothers.”

—Stephen Cowan, MD, FAAP

I found the review by A mother of twins tells how this book was key to her breastfeeding success the most helpful as it gives a mother's perspective on the benefits of the book.

I liked her facbook page.

I have subscribed to her blog.

I visited her website and found the review by Patti Ranieri to be the most inspiring and helpful. I find a personal recommendation coming from a mother who had many trials and tribulations to overcome for successful breastfeeding, to be a marker of a wonderful book!
