“The authors suggest that this book be used as a self-guided course, as a textbook, and as a reference book. I highly recommend Spanish for Breastfeeding Support for all of these purposes. Given the excellence and clarity of the information presented, it serves a dual purpose for the learner, teaching both Spanish and the basics of lactation consulting. The book will be useful in the personal libraries of all health care providers who care for Spanish speaking clients, and provides an important tool for any lactation consultant wanting to learn or teach Spanish."
- Maya Vasquez, RN, IBCLC, International Lactation Consultant Association book review
I'm the first to say that I am one power nerd. I just spent a few weeks
poring through Diana Glick and Tanya Lieberman's Spanish for
Breastfeeding Support, which is a fantastic workbook/course to teach
you how to communicate all-things-breastfeeding with Spanish-speaking
moms. It is primarily intended for lactation consultants, breastfeeding
peer counselors, nurses, physicians, midwives and childbirth educators,
but anyone would benefit from this book.
- Melissa Nagin, IBCLC, About.com book review
Whether you speak a little Spanish or none at all, the written and audio exercises in this guide will get you up to speed to support Spanish-speaking breastfeeding mothers. In addition to the comprehensive instruction in the Spanish language, this book provides a solid base of current and accurate breastfeeding advice. It demonstrates how to offer both informational and emotional support. It works as a self-guided course or as a textbook in a classroom setting. Spanish for Breastfeeding Support is a gorgeous book and an excellent reference guide!
- Angela White, LLL leader, Breastfeeding 1-2-3 book review
If you work with breastfeeding mothers who speak Spanish and need to brush up on your language skills, this book is an invaluable resource. I can't recommend it highly enough -- except to tell you that usually I give away review copies, and this one is staying right here on my bookshelf.
