"There isn't anything quite like this book - it fills a real gap in the literature. It is full of up to date and practical information about potential breastfeeding pitfalls and how to avoid or overcome them, balanced with a profound appreciation of the grief, anger, guilt and other emotions that arise when breastfeeding "fails". The breastfeeding information isn't perfect (I spotted one or two tiny errors) so ideally I might give it alongside a copy of The Womanly Art of Breastfeeding. If your anticipation of your next baby's birth is clouded by anxiety because of your experience last time, this book will help you to understand your story, so that you can achieve your goals this time. Highly recommended."
