Le vécu de l’allaitement maternel et le rôle des professionnels de santé dans l’accompagnement des femmes allaitantes au cours des premiers mois

Abstract : BACKGROUND: Breastfeeding is recommanded for a duration of at least 6 months. France is one of the European Union countries where breastfeeding rate is the lowest. Many factors are in play such as lack of information and support of breastfeeding mothers facing daily challenges. GOAL: To study breastfeeding mothers’ experiences and health professionals’ role in supporting breastfeeding during the first months.RESULTS: The analysis of 13 interviews lead to the emergence of five themes: the breastfeeding experience was mitigated, overall positive but also hard especially in the first month. The participants resorted on helpfull resource persons, often the relatives or also the Internet and health professionals. They were undergoing destabilising prejudices from society regarding breastfeeding. The support by health professionals was considered real and helpful but insuffcient. The participants were demanding more knowledge and availability especially after returning from the maternity hospital. CONCLUSION: The support of breastfeeding mothers must be improved through a better instruction and awareness of health professionals.
