Free eBook download in support of World Breastfeeding Week

IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT: FREE DOWNLOAD starts August 1, Pacific time. That’s around 4 PM Manila time.

Inspirational author and breastfeeding advocate Teresa Gumap-as Dumadag makes her newly-released eBook BREASTFEEDING: A Journey Worth Taking available for free download on Amazon Kindle from August 1–3, 2014.

The author features stories of triumph over breastfeeding challenges by moms from different walks of life — stay-at-home moms, work-at-home moms, moms working outside the home and mompreneurs — on top of telling her own breastfeeding success story. She happily achieved her personal goal of breastfeeding both of her sons for at least two years each despite the numerous challenges she encountered.

World Breastfeeding Week is celebrated every year from August 1–7 and the theme for this year is Breastfeeding: A Winning Goal for Life! The author scheduled this three-day giveaway of her eBook to coincide with the start of World Breastfeeding Week as her way of helping moms all over the world achieve their personal breastfeeding goals. She believes that breastfeeding will enable families, not just moms and babies, to reap a lifetime of health benefits.

Having read the book, Joyce Martinez says, “Breastfeeding: A Journey Worth Taking by Teresa Gumap-as Dumadag has a holistic view. More than the basic principles, it is a spiritually-driven breastfeeding book! She draws inspiration from her spiritual beliefs, and to me that is a salient ingredient for the success of most nursing mothers. I salute her for passing the culture of success from one mom to another through this book!”

Martinez is a Certified Lactation Counselor by the USA Academy of Lactation Policy and Practice. She’s a Registered Nurse with a Master of Science in Nursing and Major in Maternal and Child Health. Currently, she is Medela Moms Inc.’s In-House Lactation Counselor. She used to be Lactation Nurse Manager at St. Luke’s Medical Center’s Lactation Unit in Bonifacio Global City, Taguig.

The author herself says, “At first I didn’t understand why I had to go through a lot of tests or challenges in my breastfeeding journey, especially with my eldest son. Looking back however, I realized that God allowed me to experience those tests because He eventually used my passing of those tests to become my testimony to inspire and empower other moms.”

Amazon Prime members can download BREASTFEEDING: A Journey Worth Taking for free even after the three-day promotion. Regular customers can purchase the eBook for $9.99 after August 3.

The author is the founder of the breastfeeding support group Breastfeeding Friends Circle or BFF Circle.
