Author: Fiona Giles
Countless guides to breastfeeding crowd the bookshelves these days; not one of them speaks to women with anything approaching author Fiona Giles's level of intimacy and vitality. Alternately informative, affecting, and unexpectedly erotic, this truly one-of-a-kind work from the bestselling author of Chick for a Day and Dick for a Day pays overdue homage to the miracle of the lactating breast-a phenomenon rarely explored outside of educational literature and parenting magazines.
Thanks largely to risqu advertising and the gravity-defying cleavage sported by our most popular celebs, exposed breasts (real or fake) no longer hold any mystery. But once they shift into milk-bearing mode, breasts suddenly disappear from the public eye. In Fresh Milk, through a diverse collection of stories, memories, and personal accounts, Giles uncovers the myths, truths, and social and psychological implications of breastfeeding.
From the younger mother grappling with the bewildering trappings of maternity wear, to the woman who finds herself curiously aroused by new sensations, to the modern dad who learns the ins and outs of breastfeeding, the portraits in Giles' eye-opening book offer a welcome alternative to rote how-to tutorials and impersonal step-by-step guides. By turns poignant and informative, sexy and witty, empathic and empowering, Fresh Milk delivers everything we wanted to know about breastfeeding that our mothers never told us.
