In short, this handbook is a concise synopsis of available literature and current recommendations with recommendations and references, and should be considered for use by any clinician involved in the care of the breastfeeding mother, including psychiatry. It allows both the clinician and the patient to make the most informed decision for individual circumstances without pulling information from multiple sources. This allows for a timely and unbiased plan of action, as time can be of the essence when dealing with mental health issues.
