We are pleased to announce the winner of the Giveaway: Can this Book Change Our Culture! We were thrilled by the enthusiastic response to the contest which featured the book Breastfeeding with Comfort & Joy, by Laura Keegan, R.N., F.N.P. a nurse practitioner who has dedicated 20 years to helping mothers succeed with breastfeeding.
The winner is Cheryl Marian, who wrote:
Wow, reading your description and going to Laura’s website has sold me. I am a lactation consultant, volunteer at our local pregnancy center and give 2 hour breastfeeding classes for low income and other mothers who wish to attend. This book would be a wonderful resource to show in class and read excerpts to validate many of the points I teach. I would also, have the book available for lending on and off site for all mothers to read and to look at the real moms actually breastfeeding and loving their newborn/s and showing how involved fathers are also, even though baby is Breastfeeding. Thank you!
Congratulations Cheryl! (We have notified Cheryl that she is the winner, if we do not hear from her we will choose a runner-up.)

“Breastfeeding with Comfort and Joy is magnificent. It’s like having a wise and loving grandmother show you exactly how to nurse your baby.”— Christiane Northrup, MD, author of Women’s Bodies, Women’s Wisdom
“I have worked with Laura Keegan for nearly 20 years. Since her consultations with breastfeeding families are necessarily private, I never knew the secret(s) that made her patients so fiercely loyal and grateful. Well, here they are. Using beautiful images and clear, simple, accurate descriptions, Laura has created a manual of wisdom and celebration that should be read by anyone who is, has, or is going to breastfeed an infant.” —Larry Baskind, MD, FAAP
