Facteurs à l'origine de l'arrêt de l'allaitement maternel Dans la période allant de la sortie de la maternité jusqu'aux trois mois de l'enfant

Abstract : Introduction: In France, sixty per cent (60%) of mothers adopt breastfeeding. However, only ten per cent (10%) continue breastfeeding on an exclusive basis three months later, contrary to the World Health Organization's recommendation that infants be exclusively breastfed until six months of age. Objectives: To identify the factors affecting the cessation of breastfeeding after leaving the maternity ward and before three months post childbirth To identify the expectations of mothers adopting breastfeeding as it concerns support by healthcare professionals after they leave the maternity ward. Data and methodology: It's a qualitative study. Data were collected by semi-directive phone interviews, which were analyzed ulteriorly. The women included in the study gave birth to healthy term babies, and initiated breastfeeding whilst in the maternity ward but stopped before a three month period post childbirth. Results: Unpleasant breastfeeding experience, breastfeeding difficulties, infant's weight loss and inappropriate or insufficient healthcare professional support were the factors behind the breastfeeding cessation before three months after childbirth. All women wanted a healthcare professional's visit after returning home for support and advice. Conclusion: The increase in the duration of the breastfeeding period is a public health goal for France, and it might be thought to improve the mother's and child's health. Healthcare professional support, that is initiated during the antenatal period and continued post birth, appears to lead to an increase in breastfeeding duration and positive experience.
