Queer Nursing offers an alternative, inclusive way for both performing and supporting nursing. Written as a human manual, it takes the reader through the nursing process from start to finish. Through easy, loving language it supports nursing parents, other parental figure(s) and friends in their journey of emotional and physical milestones as well as offering gentle ways to take care of each other. The manual includes a new way of nursing by introducing the phasing system, which will aid the family in both starting and ending nursing in a calm, caring way. Queer Nursing is Gorilla Milk’s first release.
