Title: How breastfeeding works (PDF file) (Links to English resource)
Summary: Breastfeeding booklets in 8 languages featuring side-by-side Language/English Translation. Good for health professionals and mothers to read together. They appreciate being able to work together on an issue and read the same information in their own languages – this helps to overcome communication barriers where English language proficiency and/or specific terms related to breastfeeding are limitations to accessing breastfeeding support. The information is clear, in easy to read, non-medical language and is detailed enough but brief. The clear diagrams and use of full colour photographs also make them appealing. Topics include expressing & storing breastmilk, colostrum, sore nipples, weaning, engorgement, increasing supply, attachment, working & breastfeeding.
