Breastfeeding Support

General sources of breastfeeding support for all new mothers, including physicians, include “warm lines” at individual hospitals, private physicians and lactation consultants in the community, La Leche League, and other peer-support organizations. Another excellent personal and professional resource is the Academy of Breastfeeding Medicine (ABM), a worldwide organization of physicians dedicated to promotion, production, and support of breastfeeding and human lactation. ABM’s active list serve is a great resource for sharing information including clinical cases, either your own or your patients’.
