Expert Reviews:

Linda Folden Palmer, DC, author of "Baby Matters" and "The Baby Bond":

Jacobson covers a wide array of pertinent topics in this book, with an excellent understanding of the current spectrum of maternal, lactation professional, and science knowledge (each of which seem to have gaps between them), and adds lots of insightful and fun historic and anthropologic information along the way.

She's raised my own consciousness in my own favorite directions: just how intimately and distinctly our food choices affect us.

Something to bring to the beach for pleasure reading if you have ANY interest in infant feeding; really. A must-read for lactation professionals, and for breastfeeding mothers with any challenges at all. My dream to see pediatricians read.

Diana West, BA, IBCLC, author of "Defining your Own Success: Breastfeeding After Breast Reduction Surgery" and "Making More Milk":

"A book about the way foods influence milk composition - truly excellent."

Lisa Marasco, MA, IBCLC, author of "Making More Milk":

"What we eat CAN matter. `Mother Food' is a wonderful collection of historical traditions from cultures around the world and what they feed mothers to support good health, breastfeeding, and plentiful milk production. Hilary Jacobson has put years of research into pulling together information that has almost been lost to the western world; every mother will benefit from reading this book, as well as anyone who works with or supports breastfeeding mothers."

Cheryl R. Scott, RN, IBCLC, Ph.D.:

"This book is a `must read' book for all pregnant and breastfeeding mothers along with their health care providers. Mrs. Jacobson provides information on how to avoid allergies, how to lower a mother's toxic load, how to prevent over-detoxification while breastfeeding, how to prevent infant colic, postpartum depression, anemia, insulin resistance, food cravings and food addictions along with how to promote and create a healthy milk supply. I love all of the helpful and yummy recipes sprinkled throughout the book."

Sheila Humphrey, RSC, RN, IBCLC, author of "Nursing Mothers Herbal":

"I like `Mother Food's' independent originality. Reading `Mother Food' is like entering a garden with intriguing viewpoints and a number of paths that invite further exploration. One's imagination is given permission to run rampant within beautifully arranged beds of knowledge that reveal themselves slowly along the meandering but manicured paths. For many restricted to thinking only with evidence-based information, reading the book will be like finding an inviting gate leading out of a walled city."  

About the Author:

Hilary Jacobson was faced by a conundrum: serious low milk supply with each of her four children. A student of nutrition and herbalism since her teens, she now learned about herbs and foods used traditionally in Europe, Asia, by Native Americans and in Africa to increase milk supply, the so-called 'galactagogues.' These enabled her to maintain an abundant milk supply.

Jacobson: "This knowledge felt like a birthright. I thought all mothers should know it is possible to gain a degree of control over your body's ability to produce milk and your baby's ability to digest it. It is impossible to imagine how crucial these two things are unless you are a mother dealing with these issues."

When Jacobson learned that mothers in many cultures do in fact pass down this knowledge through the generations, and that it has been lost only in western culture, she resolved to write a book that would return this knowledge to western women.

Hilary Jacobson was born in California. She is a music teacher and writer, and lived thirty years in Switzerland where she raised her four children. She now lives in Southern California where she is writing the Mother Food Books Series.
