This book brings together international academics, policy makers and practitioners to build bridges between the real-world and scholarship on breastfeeding. It asks the question: How can the latest social science research into breastfeeding be used to improve support at both policy and practice level, in order to help women breastfeed and to breastfeed for longer? The edited collection includes discussion about the social and cultural contexts of breastfeeding and looks at how policy and practice can apply this to women's experiences. This will be essential reading for academics, policy makers and practitioners in public health, midwifery, child health, sociology, women's studies, psychology, human geography and anthropology, who want to make a real change for mothers.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"A readable, timely volume that draws together excellence in scholarship and practice for centering women's experiences to advance solutions to improve the low rates of breastfeeding in the UK." Paige Hall Smith, University of North Carolina at Greensboro
"All the research shows that breastfeeding is good for babies - so why do breastfeeding rates remain so low in many countries? This book is unique in using insights from mothers themselves to suggest practical solutions. Required reading for professionals, policy-makers, or anyone doing research on breastfeeding." Maria Iacovou, University of Cambridge
"This book does, as proposed, bring together research with discussions of practice and policy. It pulls together science and new ways of thinking that can help us consider how we can use women's own experiences to improve the sociocultural and political context within which they make infant feeding decisions, engage in breastfeeding practice, and are, themselves, transformed by the experience." Journal of Human Lactation
