UppityScienceChick: Evidence-Based With Attitude is one of my new favorite sites that I’m incredibly excited to share with all of you. It’s run by the esteemed Kathleen Kendall-Tackett, Ph.D., IBCLC, FAPA and she provides a plethora of resources on breastfeeding, mothering, women’s health, postpartum depression and chronic diseases. Originally when I planned this post, I was writing it solely to share the FREE handouts on depression in new mothers but then as I explored her site more deeply, I become enthralled.
I had no idea that she was the author of one of my favorite breastfeeding books for new moms (easy and simple to read, to the point), titled, Breastfeeding Made Simple: 7 Natural Laws for Nursing Mothers
