A Definitive Resource July 12 2006
By L. J. Sherrod - Published on
Format: Paperback
This "must-have" manual for anyone considering or committed to breastfeeding is recommended for mothers, friends and family members, and community organizations, hospitals, and government agencies who interact with pregnant women and new moms. Well written and easy to understand, Ms. Barber's book is a culturally relevant how-to guide that offers information, resources, and encouragement to do one of the most natural, nurturing acts between a mother and her child. Far from preachy or pushy, Ms. Barber gently gives useful tips, real-life scenarios, and even a history about breastfeeding, particularly in the African-American community. A great baby shower present!

Absolutely vital perspective June 16 2010
By Amazon Customer - Published on
Format: Paperback is about time someone wrote about breastfeeding in a way that attempts to support black women especially. Every group has its own challenges when it comes to breastfeeding. We all need to hear messages of support that are made to help us face the specific issues that arise in our communities and our families. To the reviewer that gave this book a poor review without even reading it, please go elsewhere and spend your time on something else.

Great resource! March 28 2011
By Keleigh Crigler Hadley, author of Revenge Inc. - Published on
Format: Paperback
When writing my book,[...] I was dismayed to see how few books there were that addressed issues Black women face when breastfeeding. There is overwhelming evidence that shows the lack of support Black women receive when it to breastfeeding. Ms. Barber's guide is timely, effective, and most of all tailored to meet the needs of the African-American community.
