The Journal of Human Lactation (JHL) is the premier quarterly, peer-reviewed journal publishing original research, commentaries relating to human lactation and breastfeeding behavior, case reports relevant to the practicing lactation consultant and other health professionals who assist lactating mothers or their breastfeeding infants, debate on research methods for breastfeeding and lactation studies, and discussions of the business aspects of lactation consulting.
In celebration of World Breastfeeding Week, JHL is offering free access to a number of their most-read articles through August 31, 2012. While ILCA members receive and have access to JHL as a member benefit, the availability of the free articles is especially beneficial for our colleagues from other disciplines. Please share widely these resources to pediatricians, obstetricians, midwives, nurses, educators, researchers and general public.
