Breastfeeding and Breast Milk – from Biochemistry to Impact is an evidence-based reference book that explores the multifaceted, multidisciplinary and complex world of breastfeeding and breastmilk.
Published in 2018 by the Family Larsson-Rosenquist Foundation at Thieme, Breastfeeding and Breast Milk presents a holistic, scientifically robust overview of key topics written by experts from a range of disciplines, including medicine, sociology, political science, culture and economics. It also includes LactaPedia – a glossary of lactation for science and medicine. LactaPedia, developed by The University of Western Australia and sponsored by FLRF, is a go-to source for standardised, research-based terminology for breastfeeding, breastmilk and lactation.
Breastfeeding and Breast Milk aims to empower decision-makers and health professionals with the knowledge required to increase promotion, protection and support for breastfeeding and breastmilk.
