Breastfeeding difficulty due to insufficient glandular tissue is something many mothers struggle with. Because this condition is still largely under-researched and misunderstood by practitioners who work with mothers during the perinatal period, women who experience breastfeeding problems due to insufficient glandular development also struggle to find support, both clinical and emotional, in dealing with them. This book aims to inform and support the efforts of breastfeeding mothers with low milk production due to insufficient glandular tissue, from both a scientific standpoint and an emotional one, covering the unique decisions and feelings that may be faced by someone who fully intended to breastfeed but felt betrayed by her body. The book also provides guidance for practitioners who seek to understand this condition and support their patients/clients who are dealing with it.
Diana Cassar-Uhl, MPH, IBCLC, has supported breastfeeding families and healthcare professionals since 2005 as a La Leche League Leader, IBCLC, breastfeeding educator, and researcher. Though her academic and career pursuits keep her around Washington, DC, Diana's home is in upstate New York, with her husband and three children.

I was excited to find a resource on IGT being that there is not a lot of information out there, but I would recommend you skip this one and save your money. Didn't provide any information that can't be found on Google for free.

Required Redaing for Breastfeeding Support28 December 2014 - Published on Amazon.com
Just finished reading a few moments ago. I think it is must read for anyone out there who works or volunteers in breastfeeding support. Diana offers a informative and down to earth perspective to this too little talked about issue that is breaking the hearts of so many mothers in our country. As an IGT mom, it helped give me encouragement as I prepare for my next breastfeeding journey with the birth of my second this summer. It always feels good to know you are not alone. I hope this will be a wake up call to the medical field in how such a pitiful amount of research is being done to try and help these moms and babies.

A Must Read for professionals who support breastfeeding women.22 July 2019 - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle EditionVerified Purchase
A wealth of information, well sourced and up to date. Since the birth rate has dropped in every group except for older women I imagine these issues are only going to become more common. Breastfeeding and labor support professionals must be aware of these issues so they can help their clients.
Phenomenal book!31 March 2017 - Published on Amazon.com
Phenomenal book! So glad my lactition specialist let me use it. So good I bought it myself, so I could re-read and have forever to reference back to it. Wish I would've know about this a long time ago!
