Complimentary Online Access to Breastfeeding Medicine for the Month of August

New Rochelle, NY, August 1, 2012—In recognition of World Breastfeeding Week, Mary Ann Liebert, Inc., publishers is providing free online access to 2011 and 2012 published issues of Breastfeeding Medicine for the entire month of August. Breastfeeding Medicine, the Official Journal of the Academy of Breastfeeding Medicine, is an international peer-reviewed journal providing physicians and other healthcare providers with the evidence-based information they need to ensure optimal care for both mother and infant. Published issues from 2011 and 2012 are available free on the Breastfeeding Medicine website.

“Breastfeeding has a major impact on healthcare outcomes and costs because the baby has fewer medical problems (such as ear infections, allergies, and obesity) as does the mother (such as lower incidence of breast and ovarian cancers). It gives me great pleasure to extend online access to everyone for the month of August,” said Mary Ann Liebert, President and CEO of Mary Ann Liebert, Inc., publishers.

Breastfeeding Medicine publishes original scientific papers, reviews, and clinical case studies on a wide spectrum of topics in lactation medicine such as the epidemiology, physiological, and psychological benefits of breastfeeding; breastfeeding recommendations and protocols; health consequences of artificial feeding; optimal nutrition for the breastfeeding mother; breastfeeding indications and contraindications; breastfeeding the premature or sick infant; breastfeeding in the chronically ill mother; management of the breastfeeding mother on medication; and much more.

Breastfeeding Medicine focuses on the most authoritative and up-to-date clinical information, spanning both maternal and child health,” said Ruth Lawrence, MD, Editor-in-Chief and founding member of the Academy of Breastfeeding Medicine. The Academy of Breastfeeding Medicine is a worldwide organization of physicians dedicated to the promotion, protection, and support of breastfeeding and human lactation through education, research, and advocacy. The Academy’s 17th Annual International Meeting will take place October 11-14, 2012 in Chicago, IL. For further details and to register for the meeting, please visit the Academy of Breastfeeding Medicine website.
