19.99

Women with a chemical dependence frequently have poor family and social support networks and few positive relationships with other women. These factors contribute to low rates of breastfeeding in women addicted to illicit drugs. However, breastfeeding can enhance the mother/child relationship and is the healthiest means of feeding the infant. This presentation discusses the pros and cons of breastfeeding by women with a history of substance abuse and will provide guidelines that encourage breastfeeding but at the same time protect the newborn from harm by substances that cross into the breast milk.
