AbstractHistoryArchive Description

Giles provides a provocative exposition of the practice of breastfeeding in this compendium of stories, memories, personal accounts and commentary. Giles takes an intimate and literary approach to a subject that is more generally the province of educational and parenting literature and examines a range of myths and truths about breastfeeding as well as its social and psychological implications.

'While countless breastfeeding guides crowd bookshelves, not one of them speaks to women with anything approaching bestselling author Fiona Giles's level of intimacy and vitality. In Fresh Milk, through a collection of stories, memories, and personal accounts, Giles uncovers the myths and truths of the lactating breast ... From the young mother grappling with the bewildering trappings of maternity wear to the woman who finds herself surprisingly aroused by new sensations, and the modern dad who learns the ins and outs of breastfeeding, the portraits in Giles's eye-opening book offer a funny, wise, and comforting resource for women - and even their friends and partners who have had, or expect, intimate experiences with the pleasures and pain of lactation' (Dust Jacket).
