Breastfeeders Anonymous

Rachel Blair
FAQ's by Joy Anderson

For Women Who Want to Breastfeed.

Breastfeeders Anonymous is a light-hearted, informative and easy-to-read book, perfect for new mums or pregnant women hoping to breastfeed. It is not a DIY Guide to Breastfeeding (although there is a chapter on the 'Mechanics of Breastfeeding); it's a support group in a book, in which a number of mums relate the good, bad and ugly of breastfeeding.

“This book is a great pregnancy read and an invaluable handbook for new mums. Breastfeeding is the biggest challenge in those early months and ante-natal education doesn't do nearly enough to prepare women to learn a brand new skill. Rachel's 'real woman' guide combines facts and humour to support first timers through to old hand breastfeeders."
