Die Mehrheit des Gesundheitspersonals glaubt, dass Mu¨tter im Stillen unterwiesen werden mu¨ssen. Dieses Buch liefert neue wissenschaftliche Belege, die zeigen, dass das Wissen, wie gestillt wird, Mu¨ttern und Babys angeboren ist, und stellt ein neues Konzept vor: das Intuitive Stillen. Intuitives Stillen ist ein Sammelbegriff fu¨r optimale Verhaltenszustände und Positionen zum Stillen, deren Aufeinandereinwirken spontane Verhaltensmuster bei Mu¨ttern und Babys auslöst, die ihnen helfen, mit dem Stillen zu beginnen. Intuitives Stillen ist schnell und einfach umzusetzen. Die meisten Mu¨tter und Babys nehmen selbsttätig die richtige Position ein, wenn dies ohne fremdes Eingreifen von außen zugelassen wird. Die Aufgabe des Gesundheitspersonals besteht darin, die auslösenden Mechanismen zu verstehen und so zu lernen, wie sie Mu¨ttern und Babys helfen können, das zu machen, was diese intuitiv tun wollen. Dieses Buch stärkt das Vertrauen in die biologische Basis des Stillens und die angeborene Stillfähigkeit der Mu¨tter. Dr. Suzanne Colson ist eine meiner Heldinnen, weil ihre aufmerksame und sorgfältige Forschung und die Schlussfolgerungen, die sie daraus gezogen hat, endlich gesunden Menschenverstand in die Diskussion u¨ber das Stillen gebracht hat. Ina May Gaskin, Hebamme und Autorin von Spirituelle Hebammen, Praktische Hebammen, Die selbstbestimmte Geburt und Ina May's Guide to Breastfeeding Der französische Geburtshelfer und Colsons Mentor, Michel Odent, veränderte unsere Art und Weise u¨ber die Geburt zu denken. Mit diesem Buch unternimmt Suzanne Colson dasselbe fu¨r das Stillen. Machen Sie sich bereit, viele Ihrer grundlegenden Annahmen u¨ber das Stillen zu u¨berdenken - so, wie ich es getan habe - und lernen Sie einige revolutionäre, neue Wege, um Mu¨ttern und Babys zu helfen. Dieses Buch wird Ihr Leben verändern! Nancy Mohrbacher, IBCLC, FILCA, Co-Autorin von Breastfeeding Answers Made Simple und Breastfeeding Made Simple

As Ethan tries to reunite the ring with the woman it was actually intended for, he discovers this isn't that easy. Does fate have other ideas for the couples? Or is there simply a bit of Tiffany's magic in the air . . .
