In this hilarious breastfeeding tell-all, the newly titled reissue of How My Breasts Saved the World, Lisa Wood Shapiro recounts her rookie year as a nursing mother. She gives readers the skinny on important new mom essentials-chocolate, ice cream, sexy nursing bras, lactation consultants, breast pumps, mother's groups, play dates, Mommy and Me Yoga (t)-and the sort of funny yet handy advice usually shared by close sisters and best friends.
Lisa Wood Shapiro, a writer and an Emmy-winning filmmaker whose work has appeared on PBS, A&E, Nickelodeon, Noggin, and elsewhere, studied writing with the late Lucy Grealy and the poet Thomas Lux. She is currently finishing her second book and developing a series for television. She lives in Brooklyn, New York with her family.
