Mother's Milk examines why nursing a baby is an ideologically charged experience in contemporary culture. Drawing upon medical studies, feminist scholarship, anthropological literature, and an intimate knowledge of breastfeeding itself, Bernice Hausman demonstrates what is at stake in mothers' infant feeding choices--economically, socially, and in terms of women's rights. Breastfeeding controversies, she argues, reveal social tensions around the meaning of women's bodies, the authority of science, and the value of maternity in American culture. A provocative and multi-faceted work, Mother's Milk will be of interest to anyone concerned with the politics of women's embodiment.
Shortlisted for the Man Booker Prize, Mother's Milk is the fourth of Edward St Aubyn's semi-autobiographical Patrick Melrose novels, adapted for TV for Sky Atlantic and starring Benedict Cumberbatch as aristocratic addict, Patrick. The once illustrious, once wealthy Melroses are in peril. Caught up in the wreckage of broken promises, child-rearing, adultery and assisted suicide, Patrick finds his wife Mary consumed by motherhood, his mother in thrall to a New Age foundation, and his young son Robert understanding far more than he should. But even as the family struggles against the pull of its ever-present past, a new generation brings a new tenderness, and the possibility of change.
MOTHER, LOVE, DEATH: these three words when combined, are among the most compelling in the English language. Mothers Milk is a moving human drama about a young minister who finds no way to cope with the death of his beloved mother. The response to her loss by this "prodigal son" sends his world crashing down around him, but his lifes journey takes a riveting look at some of the most puzzling mysteries of an "ordinary" society. He falls into a grief-induced antipathy which nearly kills him, destroying all hope for a productive life, until a most unlikely redeemer finds a way to him. Based on a true story, the reader is taken on a spectacular journey-weaving in and out of past and present moments to reveal the depth of familial love and his losses. Finally, we see his redemption through the yet-to-be fully explored powers of a "Mothers Milk."

Both physicians and the lay public raise questions about drug excretion in breast milk. Enhanced interest is seen with the increase in the number of mothers who wish to breast feed. 'Contamination' of breast milk by drugs and environmental chemicals imposes risks, both known and theoretical, to the infant. Drug information centres and physicians find a meagre amount of knowledge on which to base recommenda tions and the data which are available are often anecdotal or derived from single case reports. A critical look at both the nature and scope of our knowledge on this matter was undertaken for this review. This purpose was best served by the cooperation of pharmacologists and clinicians who have a special interest in certain classes of drugs. A unified pharmacokinetic approach was formulated to facilitate the evaluation of previous data and to offer a model for future studies. This work was, in part, published in Clinical Pharmacokinetics Vol. 5 No. I 1980. Its reception prompted this revised and expanded version and it is hoped that its critical analyses and comprehensive literature citations will foster more concerted and thorough research into drug excretion in breast milk; benefits would then accrue to both maternal and child health. This work is dedicated to Dr William A. Silverman with whom I was most for tunate to share experiences as a fellow in neonatology and whose dedication to paediatrics and clinical investigation in subsequent years, I have watched from afar.
