Breastfeeding Medicine precisely fills a niche that no other current peer-reviewed journal fills. It is an essential resource for anyone conducting basic science research in breastfeeding/breast milk, but also provides a broader perspective on clinical studies and social topics.”

“Breastfeeding is one of the fundamental components of mother-baby bonding and, on an international scale, provides the nutritional basis for immunologic health and physical development in the newborn. However, the obstetric community too often lacks awareness of the biologic and psychosocial benefits, but Breastfeeding Medicine brings a spotlight to this important practice.”

Breastfeeding Medicine gives me the information I need to educate healthcare staff, patients, and families.”
