Relactation: review of experience and recommendations for practice
A woman who has stopped breastfeeding her child, recently or in the past, can resume the production of breastmilk. This potentially life-saving measure is called relactation. Many women who relactate can produce enough milk to breastfeed an infant exclusively, per WHO recommendations. 'Relactation: A review of experience and recommendations for practice' contains information on effective techniques and practical guidelines to help health workers caring for women and children who wish to re-establishing breastfeeding.
