The third edition highlights AWHONN's continued commitment to promoting evidence-based nursing practice and ensuring that breast-and human milk feeding is the normative standard for infant feeding and nutrition for term, preterm and vulnerable infants.
This new edition provides the comprehensive evidence-based information and recommendations needed to support and guide women from preconception care and counseling through the baby's first year of life. Research-based information addresses unique developmental and sociocultural factors that influence a woman's decision to breastfeed; and includes comprehensive information about global and national breastfeeding promotion efforts.
A dedicated section with recommendations targeting breastfeeding promotion and support for mothers of preterm and vulnerable newborns has been reformatted and expanded. Nurses, lactation specialists, physicians, and other health care professionals will find the latest recommendations and supporting evidence for this special patient population based on Spatz' 10 Steps for Human Milk and Breastfeeding for Vulnerable Infants.
This guideline is an essential resource for clinicians and facilities preparing to achieve Baby-Friendly designation and a must have for all healthcare providers responsible for breastfeeding care, support and education.
The Quick Care Guide has also been revised and is included free with the purchase of this Evidence-Based Guideline.
