First time mothers' views of breastfeeding support from nurses.
MCN Am J Matern Child Nurs. 2003 Jan-Feb; 28(1):10-5.MA

Abstract

PURPOSE

To gain insights into the perceptions of first-time mothers regarding nurses' support of breastfeeding.

STUDY DESIGN

Phenomenology.

METHOD

Audiotaped interviews were conducted with 20 primiparous breastfeeding mothers within the first month after giving birth vaginally to healthy term infants. Data analysis was concurrent with data collection, and trustworthiness of the data was established.

RESULTS

Nurses provided emotional, informational, and tangible support. Nonsupportive behaviors were also identified, including a sense that the nurse was in a hurry, failed to offer breastfeeding assistance, and was inflexible while working with the mother and infant.

CLINICAL IMPLICATIONS

Nurses can contribute significantly to the successful initiation of and continuation of breastfeeding, and provide new mothers with the confidence and reassurance critical for breastfeeding success.
