“I may be blacklisted for saying this, but the Medical Community is failing breastfeeding moms,” states Jennifer Ritchie, Internationally Board Certified Lactation Consultant and author of I Make Milk! What’s Your Superpower? The Ultimate Survival Guide To Breastfeeding. “It typically takes from 11 to 16 years to become a Doctor, depending on the specialty**. In all of those years, between 1-4 HOURS is spent on discussing the benefits of breastmilk for infants. These are the people we are depending on for help. When it comes to breastfeeding, new parents get more information from Google than their own doctor. That is why I am offering my book online for free, so the whole world can get accurate evidence-based breastfeeding support.”
In a study of 14,000 US children*, 40 percent lack strong emotional bonds with their parents that are crucial to success later in life, according to a new report. The researchers found that these children are more likely to face educational and behavioral problems.
A 2010 cost analysis published in Pediatrics showed that the US government would save $13 billion per year if 90% of U.S. women breastfed their babies for the first six months of life. Each drop of breastmilk contains 1 million white blood cells. These are the cells that KILL bacteria, fight infection, fight disease, and destroy old or damaged cells in the body.
Jennifer Ritchie’s book I Make Milk! What’s Your Superpower? The Ultimate Survival Guide To Breastfeeding addresses so much more than just the process of successfully nursing an infant. As with everything related to the intimacy of having a child, there is plenty of emotion and misinformation to go around. This book relies on fact-based research to debunk the superstitions, commercial agendas and medical ignorance on the subject. Jennifer Ritchie addresses every issue with credible studies from educational, medical and scientific sources to enable expectant and new parents to make informed decisions about breastfeeding.

Breastfeeding Rates: Under the Affordable Care Act – the health insurance reform legislation passed by Congress and signed into law by President Obama on March 23, 2010 – insurance companies are required to pay for breast pumps and counseling for new mothers to address breastfeeding problems, but breastfeeding rates are not increasing.
