Review Quotes




"Ina May Gaskin is an international treasure. Her new guide to breastfeeding is the best thing ever written on the subject. A must-have for all pregnant women interested in the best start for their babies." --Christiane Northrup, M.D., Author of Women' s Bodies, Women's Wisdom and The Wisdom of Menopause

"This book is all we've come to expect of Ina May Gaskin--warm, wise, solidly based in real experiences, and sensitive to the needs and lives of women in all their complexity. It's the only breastfeeding book you'll need."--Barbara Katz Rothman and Wendy Simonds, authors of Laboring On

"Simply put, midwife Ina May Gaskin is the most important person in maternity care in North America, bar none."--Marsden Wagner, M.D., M.S., former Director of Women' s and Children's Health, World Health Organization

"Breastfeeding is one of life' s greatest joys. And there is no better guide to have at your side than the legendary Ina May!"--Harvey Karp, M.D., author of The Happiest Baby on the Block and creator of the DVD

"Ina May Gaskin's words of wisdom are a gift to all women. Ina May's Guide to Breastfeeding is the perfect informative companion to Spiritual Midwifery and Ina May's Guide to Childbirth. All of them hold a treasured place in my library and should, no doubt, be part of yours."--Ricki Lake, coauthor of Your Best Birth and cocreator of the documentary The Business of Being Born

"Eons of accumulated feminine wisdom, having been muddled and dispersed by modern medical practice, have become sadly unavailable to today's woman. In this and each of her books, Ms. Gaskin, one of the world's foremost scholars of such wisdom, puts it concisely and lovingly back into our hands. Ina May's Guide to Breastfeeding is the perfect gift for any pregnant woman. It is like having the best childbirth and lactation consultant right there at your bedside. And for non-pregnant women and men alike, may it be viewed as the seminal feminist text that it is, and may the re-empowerment of women with respect to childbirth be seen as central to the work of feminism, and indeed the cause of humanity, in the 21st century." --Ani DiFranco
