Most health professionals believe that mothers need to be taught how to breastfeed. This book describes new research evidence suggesting that mothers and babies innately know how to breastfeed, and introduces a new approach called biological nurturing. Biological nurturing is a collective term for optimal breastfeeding states and positions whose interaction release spontaneous behaviors helping mothers and babies get started with feeding. Biological nurturing is quick and easy to do. Most moms and babies automatically move into the correct positions if left on their own. The challenge for health professionals lies with understanding the releasing mechanisms and learning how to help mothers and babies do what comes naturally. This book restores confidence in nature's biological design and in mothers' innate capacity to breastfeed. Dr. Suzanne Colson is one of my heroes because her thoughtful and careful research and the conclusions she has drawn from this research have finally brought common sense into the discussion of breastfeeding. Ina May Gaskin, CNM, Ph.D., Author, Spiritual Midwifery and Ina May's Guide to Breastfeeding Colson's mentor, French obstetrician Michel Odent, changed the way we think about birth. In this book, Suzanne Colson does the same for breastfeeding. Get ready to rethink-like I did-many of your most basic breastfeeding assumptions and learn some revolutionary new ways to help mothers and babies. This book will change your life!

For mothers, lactation consultants, nurses, midwives, childbirth educators, WIC breastfeeding counselors, and others who work with breastfeeding mothers.. This 28-minute DVD introduces laid-back positions that help mothers breastfeed in greater comfort and enjoy their babies more. In the past, postpartum mothers were instructed to breastfeed lying on their side or sitting up with baby supported by a pillow. This worked for some mothers but many found these positions uncomfortable and struggled with latching difficulties.. You will see ethnically diverse mothers and babies in a variety of settings: a delivery room, a postpartum hospital room after a cesarean birth, at home in bed, on a couch, in different chairs, and in an outdoor cafe. Each environment illustrates a different aspect of how Biological Nurturing makes early mothering and breastfeeding easier and more satisfying.. When baby is on his tummy snuggled up to mom's breast, magic happens for both of them! Baby's reflexes awaken when his whole body is touching hers and mom can more easily respond with loving gestures because she has one or both hands free.. These positions work in harmony with gravity to reduce the "work" of breastfeeding, making it easier to let baby nurse as long as he needs to while mother achieves complete relaxation and greater oxytocin release.. Bonus footage explains why one mother found breastfeeding challenging in a rocking chair, an excellent teaching tool on how body dynamics can affect breastfeeding.

Ours is a time of rapid cultural change with new economic challenges. People look to their governments for leadership and solutions. But what can and should government do to meet the difficulties that beset a nation? What can citizens expect from their elected representatives? What is reasonable? And what should citizens do? What are their responsibilities? This book addresses such fundamental issues through the eyes of Scripture and against the backdrop of North America's dual heritage of Christianity and humanism. Government, politics, and the Bible do not seem like a good mix. But as this book aims to show, the Bible has much wisdom to teach us about the place and role of government and its citizens. Biblical principles work because God knows how his world and his servant governments are supposed to function. After all, he ordained the governing authorities, and the principles enunciated in his Word are timeless and remain practical. This book introduces fundamental biblical principles that apply to government and politics. The intent is to inform and to motivate the reader to get involved where possible in the political processes of the day. Our legislators need the input and help from their knowledgable Christian constituents.

To contain the Minotaur, the ancient artificer Daedalus crafted a maze so intricate that it bewildered even its maker. Contemporary medicine--'Hippocrates' Maze--is every bit as bewildering, so much so that a new and distinct field, bioethics, has been created to help professional caregivers, patients, and families navigate their way through it. In Nelson's typically inviting and graceful style, the essays collected in Hippocrates' Maze explore the labyrinth of contemporary health care, and arrive at some unusual findings about death and decisionmaking, justice and families, cloning and kinship, and organ donation and intimacy. However, the book's most distinctive conclusions concern bioethics itself: the field is not best seen solely as a source of good advice to doctors, but rather as a way of better understanding our humanity.
