Associate Professor in Child Public Health at Swansea University, UK
Dr Amy Brown is an Associate Professor of Child Public Health at Swansea University in the UK where she leads the MSc in Child Public Health. Her research explores how we can support new mothers better through pregnancy and the first years, particularly around feeding their babies.
Her first book 'Breastfeeding Uncovered: Who really decides how we feed our babies' published by Pinter & Martin brings together over twelve years of her research into understanding the challenges of breastfeeding. It calls for a change in how we view the responsibility of feeding babies, moving pressure away from individual mothers to a collective societal responsibility in supporting, encouraging and protecting new mothers to feed their babies.
