In her book, Mother Food, based on 15 years of research, she shows how these foods can be used to enhance milk production, prevent postpartum depression, increase energy, promote gentle weightloss and detox, improve the mother's and baby's immune systems, support a baby's IQ and development, prevent colic and allergy, and even improve the taste of a mother's milk. With this modern classic, Jacobson has given pregnant and breastfeeding mothers a unique dietary, herbal and health resource. Praised by mothers and professionals alike for its compassionate tone and its hard-to-find information, "Mother Food" is the essential dietary guide for pregnancy and the postpartum.

Breastfeeding difficulty due to insufficient glandular tissue is something many mothers struggle with. Because this condition is still largely under-researched and misunderstood by practitioners who work with mothers during the perinatal period, women who experience breastfeeding problems due to insufficient glandular development also struggle to find support, both clinical and emotional, in dealing with them. This book aims to inform and support the efforts of breastfeeding mothers with low milk production due to insufficient glandular tissue, from both a scientific standpoint and an emotional one, covering the unique decisions and feelings that may be faced by someone who fully intended to breastfeed but felt betrayed by her body. The book also provides guidance for practitioners who seek to understand this condition and support their patients/clients who are dealing with it.
