The study was done by a team from the Yale Cancer Outcomes, Public Policy and Effectiveness Research Center at Yale School of Medicine.

Desperate Women, Desperate Doctors and the Surprising History Behind the Breastfeeding Debate
For something that’s supposed to be a natural process, breastfeeding can be surprisingly complicated — and not only for new mothers literally struggling with the process. Breastfeeding debates can leave families feeling embattled from both sides, but controversy over who should breastfeed and for how long and where shows no signs of letting up. For example, in July, news broke that the United States had fought a seemingly uncontroversial resolution in support of breastfeeding at the World Health Assembly earlier this spring. But, though such controversies can seem like a distinctly modern problem, breastfeeding...

As a therapist working with trauma, I sit across from clients every week who are straining to make sense of abuse.
