Memorable stories: A qualitative study of mothersí experiences with breastfeeding (pp. 291-295) $45.00
Authors:  Cecilia S Obeng and Adrienne Shivers
Abstract:
Purpose. This study explores mothersí experiences with breastfeeding and the impact of breastfeeding on the health of their infants. Design/methodology/approach. This study was conducted using grounded theory approach. The research was conducted in the state of Indiana in the United States. Data were collected by the authors and a research assistant. A total of 26 mothers were included in this study. Findings Five themes emerged from the data: 1) Breast feeding education should be part of initial doctorís visits; 2) mothers and their infants falling asleep together while nursing; 3) mothers and doctors should be able to watch the children grow free of health problems; 4) breast pumps and other incentives should be provided to encourage mothers to breastfeed and 5) there is a general lack of information on breastfeeding to which mothers are exposed. The majority of the mothers in this study reported a positive response to breastfeeding their babies. Participants, especially African-Americans, reported that breastfeeding was not encouraged as an option at the time when they had their babies. Conclusions: The findings of this study show that giving incentives to breastfeed, providing breastfeeding education, and encouragement from health professionals all are crucial toward increasing the likelihood that mothers will breastfeed their children.
