Editorial Reviews


"This well-written and accessible book is free of jargon, and covers a sweeping variety of topics. The case studies are interesting and often moving; this book is a desperately needed and important step toward reconciling feminist views on breastfeeding."
(Professor Karen Kedrowski coauthor of Breastfeeding Rights in the United States 2011-09-27)

"Beyond Health, Beyond Choice is a collection of 23 well-written and thoughtprovoking articles exploring a wide range of mother-related topics including race, class and culture, medicalization of breastfeeding support, marketing milk, guilt, media, and sexuality."
(International Lactation Consultant Association 2013-02-01)

(Choice 2013-03-01)
