Choix du mode d'allaitement après conception par insémination intra-utérine avec sperme du conjoint

Abstract : Background: France has one of the Iowest levels of breastfeeding in Europe. Infertility and assisted reproductive technology (ART) can have an effect on the relationship between mother and child. As far as we know, no study has ever been made on the influence of infertility and intrauterine insemination on new born feeding decisions. The aims of this study were to evaluate the percentage of breastfeeding initiation and duration in women having given birth via intrauterine insemination and to identify factors which influence new born feeding decisions. Study design: A non-intrusive retrospective study using telephone interviews and file evaluations were carried out at thè ART center of the Conception University Hospital in Marseille on a population of 63 mothers Who had given birth to live newborns after intrauterine insemination. Results: 73 0/0 of the studied population initiated breastfeeding in the maternity ward, 670/0 of which used it exclusively. Breastfeeding duration was 4.5 months (±4.5) on average. The factors that significantly influenced breastfeeding initiation were: a normal pregnancy, an educational level below a bachelor's degree and early breastfeeding. Conclusion: The duration of infertility period had no effect on breastfeeding in this study. It is possible that the complexity of ART method influences the relationship between mother and child, hence breastfeeding initiation.
