Writer thankful for understanding.
However, I feel Gabi England, in her letter, Rooming-in promotes breast feeding, and the Hawke's Bay Lactation group, in its letter, Erroneous presumptions in article, failed to recognise this, but rather deviated from the focus, while still making for some interesting reading.
I believe giving choices is not "erroneous", "presumptuous" or "outdated", as stated in the letter from the Hawke's Bay lactation group, but a practice that is modern in its concept and has replaced the outdated authoritarianism of yesteryear when medical staff "knew better" than the women they served.
