La Leche League : at the crossroads of medicine, feminism, and religion by Jule DeJager Ward( Book )

4 editions published between 1999 and 2000 in English and held by 585 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In 1956, when La Leche League was founded, if a new mother chose to breastfeed rather than bottlefeed her child, she could by no means expect universal support for her decision. Though physicians of the era admitted that breastfeeding was the best method of infant feeding, they warned of the difficulties that nursing mothers faced, and many held that successful breastfeeding required a knowledge of science and medicine that most new mothers could not claim. Started by seven Catholic women who simply wished to help their friends learn to breastfeed, La Leche League grew into an organization with several million members worldwide, known here and abroad for its pathbreaking promotion of the breastfeeding of infants. Offering a fascinating look inside an organization whose full history has been essentially untold, Jule Ward explores the genesis, theological underpinnings, and development of La Leche League. She demonstrates that, despite distancing itself from any overt expression of its religious roots, the organization remains a quasi-religious articulation of Catholic social thought blended with scientific ideology and feminism. In short, says Ward, the story of La Leche League provides an excellent example of how religion in practice permeates everyday life

"The Breastfeeding Answer Book offers complete and current information for those who help mothers breastfeed. Its easy-to-use format makes it practical for quick reference when a mother telephones with a breastfeeding question, yet its broad scope makes it a complete resource." "When La Leche League International introduced The Breastfeeding Answer Book in 1991, it was welcomed by breastfeeding counselors worldwide as the most complete and comprehensive guide to helping mothers find answers to their breastfeeding questions. This new edition, revised and expanded, covers even more breastfeeding situations." "Complete and up-to-date references are included with every chapter along with suggestions of further reading for parents. LLLI's Center for Breastfeeding Information, the world's most extensive collection of research related to breastfeeding, was the primary source of scientific studies used for this comprehensive revision. All chapters have been carefully reviewed by members of LLLI's Health Advisory Council and other experts. The result is a complete guide to breastfeeding that can be used with confidence to help mothers establish and enjoy a satisfying breastfeeding relationship with their babies. Book jacket."--Jacket
