Responding to the most widely read breastfeeding manual, La Leche League's The Womanly Art of Breastfeeding, Robyn Lee's The Ethics and Politics of Breastfeeding explores breastfeeding as an art that must be developed through skillful application of effort and distinguished from a merely natural or physiological process. The Ethics and Politics of Breastfeeding challenges the dominant understanding of breastfeeding and cultivates an alternative conception as an ethical, embodied practice of the self. Drawing on the work of Michel Foucault, Emmanuel Levinas, and Luce Irigaray, Lee develops a new understanding of breastfeeding as an "art of living," where the practice is reconsidered in the light of ongoing social inequalities.

Boobs. Tits. Hooters. Knockers. Jugs. Breasts. We celebrate them; we revile them. They nourish us; they kill us. And regardless of what we call them, breasts have fascinated us since prehistoric times. This A-to-Z encyclopedia explores the historical magnitude and cultural significance of the breast over time and around the world. A team of international scholars from various disciplines provides key insights and information about the breast in art, history, fashion, social movements, medicine, sexuality, and more. Entries discuss depictions of breasts on ancient figurines, in Renaissance paintings, and in present-day advertisements. They examine how fashion has emphasized or de-emphasized the breast at various times. They tackle medical issues—such as breast augmentation and breast cancer—and controversies over breastfeeding. The breast as sexual object and even a site of smuggling are also covered. As a whole, the Cultural Encyclopedia of the Breast takes an engaging and accessible look at this notable body part.

“Blessed is the womb that bore you, and the breasts that you sucked!” Mike and Terri Aquilina offer a rich array of evidence for the emotional, physical, spiritual and psychological importance of breastfeeding. Drawing on everything from scriptures and the Church Fathers to modern medical journals and Pope John Paul II, they posit that “breastfeeding has a ‘sacramental’ quality; it stands as a natural sign of something divine. Indeed, it is among the most profound and personal experiences of the divine beauty revealed in nature.” Such an important message for mothers today!

Religion as a Social Determinant of Public Health

Frequently in partnership, but sometimes at odds, religious institutions and public health institutions work to improve the well-being of their communities. There is increasing awareness among public health professionals and the general public that the social conditions of poverty, lack of education, income inequality, poor working conditions, and experiences of discrimination play a dominant role in determining health status. But this broad view of the social determinants of health has largely ignored the role of religious practices and institutions in shaping the life conditions of billions around the globe. In Religion as a Social Determinant of Public Health, leading scholars in the social sciences, public health, and religion address this omission by examining the embodied sacred practices of the world's religions, the history of alignment and tension between religious and public health institutions, the research on the health impact of religious practice throughout the life course, and the role of religious institutions in health and development efforts around the globe. In addition, the volume explores religion's role in the ongoing epidemics of HIV/AIDS and Alzheimer's disease, as well as preparations for an influenza pandemic. Together, these groundbreaking essays help complete the picture of the social determinants of health by including religion, which has until now been an invisible determinant.

"In Australia, initial exclusive breastfeeding rates are 92 %, reducing to 14% at six months. One factor that contributes to early breastfeeding cessation is infant tongue tie. It is linked to breastfeeding difficulties and these problems contribute to early breastfeeding cessation. Tongue tie or ankyloglossia is described as a congenital condition with an unusually thickened, tightened or shortened frenulum (membrane or string under the tongue). The frenulum may vary in length, elasticity and placement along the underside of the tongue to the floor of the mouth, which then can affect infants’ breastfeeding skills in different ways. Tongue tie has been reported as occurring between 2.8% and 10.7% of all infants with an average of 5.14%. The shortened membrane limits movement of the tongue, which can affect activities such as feeding, dental hygiene and speech. Since breastfeeding has been shown overwhelmingly to be of significant benefit to infants and mothers, it is important to address any condition that may impair breastfeeding. The purpose of this research was to describe the effect tongue tie has on the breastfeeding experiences of women in order to provide evidence that can be used to review and refine practices within the health service district. This study utilised a qualitative research approach: hermeneutic phenomenology. Because phenomenology seeks to explore the meaning, examination and description of the human experience and therefore gain an understanding of what has occurred, it is appropriate for this study, which focuses on description and interpretation of the breastfeeding experiences of women whose infants have tongue tie. In particular, hermeneutic phenomenology has been selected because it focuses on what the experience means for the individuals being-in-the world, and how these individuals interpret their experience and this experience influences the choices that they make.
