The Official Breastfeeding Atlas IBLCE Exam Guide
It gets better and better
Kathleen (Kathie) Marinelli MD, IBCLC, FABM, FAAP
I began using the Wilson-Clay and Hoover Breastfeeding Atlas many editions ago as I began my journey into Breastfeeding Medicine and studying for the IBLCE exam. Each edition has improved in the quality of the photos and the accompanying commentary. Many are common occurrences and practices, but some one might not come across frequently in practice, making both really valuable resources to me as a professional, my students, and the patients I have seen over the years. I am excited to see this newest edition of The Atlas! It is a one of a kind reference for any person in the field of lactation.

This is a great publication, soon to be in its Portuguese version. The "Atlas" may help professionals, students of Health-related courses and other people who attend mothers and babies to learn, based on a large and diverse collection of pictures and figures, different situations related to BF practice and problems. Images and comments can clarify diverse situations for those who support mothers to have pleasure and satisfaction in the act of breastfeeding their infants. Thanks to the authors, Barbara Wilson-Clay and Kay Hoover, for sharing this publication with the Portuguese-speaking people around the world!

Testimonial from Uruguay
Laura Fazio, IBCLC, Uruguay
El Atlas de Lactancia fue imprescindible para mi y mis colegas de Uruguay durante la preparación del examen IBCLC. Además las uso las fotos cuando enseño a los pacientes en lugar donde me desempeño como consultora lactancia IBCLC.

The Breastfeeding Atlas has been a staple in lactation education for decades. Every well-equipped practicing or aspiring IBCLC has a copy of The Atlas - including me

The Breastfeeding Atlas is one of my favorite textbooks for everyday use and preparing me for the Board exam. It also improved the knowledge of my students in the South African Certified Lactation course. It is a fundamental tool for everyone working with lactating mothers.

The Breastfeeding Atlas is worth far more than its price because of the outstanding quality and quantity of photos that are central to understanding, preventing, and resolving breastfeeding problems.
Liz Brooks, JD, IBCLC, FILCA, Pennsylvania
The Breastfeeding Atlas was one of the very first reasonably-priced, evidence-based, patient/client-centered books. It is chock full of photos, available to those who are studying the IBLCE exam, or working with parents home with their babies. Many times I pulled it out at a home visit, to show pictures and information to help worried parents understand that their problem was not unique, and had a course of care we could try. The current edition does not leave my home visit bag. Using it for exam prep was invaluable to ease my IBCLC recertification.
