This subject guide was created for you. If you have suggestions or comments, please do not hesitate to contact us and we will take your suggestions under advisement. This guide was originally created to provide suggestions for mothers in the antepartum unit at NYU Langone, but has grown to include NYU employees who may be searching for suggestions of books to read. A number of these books are available in lactation rooms through-out the NYU Langone campus, though they are not available for checking out.
