Breastfeeding Medicine

Breastfeeding Medicine

New Rochelle, NY, July 31, 2006—In Recognition of World Breastfeeding Week, Mary Ann Liebert, Inc. (www.liebertpub.com) will provide free online access to Breastfeeding Medicine for the entire month of August. Breastfeeding Medicine, the official publication of the Academy of Breastfeeding Medicine, is a new international peer-reviewed medical journal that provides physicians with the evidence-based information they need to further educate themselves, their hospital staff, and patients on all aspects of breastfeeding to ensure optimal care for both mother and infant. All published issues are available free online at www.liebertpub.com/bfm

“A new level of interest in breastfeeding coupled with widespread evidence-based research on the benefits of breastfeeding was the impetus for Breastfeeding Medicine,” said Mary Ann Liebert, President and CEO of Mary Ann Liebert, Inc. “Breastfeeding has a major impact on healthcare outcomes and costs since the baby has fewer medical problems (such as ear infections, allergies and obesity), as does the mother (such as lower incidence of breast and ovarian cancer). It gives me great pleasure to extend online access to everyone for the month of August,” she added.

Breastfeeding Medicine publishes original scientific papers, reviews, and clinical case studies on a wide spectrum of topics in lactation medicine such as: the epidemiology, physiological and psychological benefits of breastfeeding; breastfeeding recommendations and protocols; health consequences of artificial feeding; optimal nutrition for the breastfeeding mother; breastfeeding indications and contraindications; breastfeeding the premature or sick infant; breastfeeding in the chronically ill mother; management of the breastfeeding mother on medication; and much more.

The Academy of Breastfeeding Medicine is a worldwide organization of physicians dedicated to the promotion, protection, and support of breastfeeding and human lactation through education, research, and advocacy. The Academy’s 2006 Annual International Meeting, “Current Controversies in Breastfeeding Medicine,” is taking place on September 19-22, 2006 in Niagara Falls, NY.

Howard Davis Article: A Musical Axis - Brahms, Wagner, Sibelius

Brahms' warm and exquisitely subtle Symphony No. 3 in F major, Wagner's irrepressibly sentimental symphonic poem Siegfried Idyll, and Sibelius' chilling and immensely challenging Violin Concerto in D minor exemplify distinct stages of development in a tangled and convoluted series of skirmishes that came to define subsequent disputes about the nature of post-Romantic orchestral writing well into the following century.
