La formation des étudiantes sages-femmes sur l'allaitement en France

Abstract : After making a research about the benefits and reasons of breastfeeding, the official texts and recommendations, we looked up at the role the midwife had in the promotion and the support of breastfeeding. Therefore, in this study, we wanted to know if the initial education was sufficient. Our study was based on a double survey with questionnaires, one of them was given to 274 French midwifery students, and the other one to the midwives' teaching staffs of 19 schools. According to our study, the breastfeeding education is correct and adequate when it comes to theory. However, this education remains very heterogeneous and sometimes insufficient concerning the practical and concrete application in the school. The supervision in training course is variable, and the guidance could be improved. As a result, the education of midwive's students on breastfeeding should be more and more reconsidered. The educational tools of learning based on clinical cases should be developed.
